Let’s put some melon in our salad and call it almost summer!
Plus, I’m a sucker for alliteration.
Memorial day weekend is always one of my favorite weekends of the entire year. Besides the fact that it’s a long weekend and the unofficial start of summer, we cap it off by going to a little local parade honoring those who fought for us and it’s such a nice tradition.
I’ve always loved this specific weekend, but a few years ago, Eddie and I had SUCH a wonderful long weekend that I’ve held it to high standards ever since. We didn’t do anything special or out of the ordinary. We did tons of yard work and landscaping, made great dinners, had a few parties to go to, went to get ice cream and finished it off with the parade, but it was just so packed with normal, everyday life, make-it-count activities. We did LIFE.
I mean, it sounds ridiculous, but it was packed with the things we do to live this life that we love.
