Happy Memorial Day!

Today is Memorial Day.
Today is about gobbling up delicious food.
Yes, I need Siracha with everything.
Enjoying a warm and sunny day.
Sitting and relaxing while the papas do all the work.
Spending time with our friends and family.
Enjoying our {almost} new patio furniture.
Most importantly--
Today is about remembering those that have given their lives.
Today is about being grateful to those that defend our country today.
Today is about understanding the great sacrifices made that allow for so many freedoms and opportunities.
Today is about being thankful to those men and women, who help to make our country a safe and secure place where my kids can grow up healthy and happy.
We thank you for all you do.
We will be forever grateful.
We will keep you and your families in our prayers.
We will remember your hard work and sacrifice everyday and not just today.
Thank you.

This blogging business is harder than I imagined.
Thankfully, I have a friend that is quite the expert.
And she is really patient.
Did I mention that she is super encouraging too?
I'm hoping you all will be too.
It's going to take a little getting used too.
Html this. Upload that. Resize this.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg, right?
My blog is not near as fancy as some of yours.
However, I am excited to be here.
And I am sure this whole blogging thing will get easier--*crossing my fingers*
I hope my blog will bring half of the laughter and inspiration that I have experienced from so many amazing and creative ladies' blogs.
I have learned so much from these ladies.
Most of all, I feel like I am not alone in this incredible journey of love, motherhood, frustration, joy, sadness, and faith.
I'm so excited to share my thoughts, my memories, and my projects with you.
Wish me luck.
Keep on visiting and reading.
Let me know what you think.
Until next time.
