Wishing everyone a lovely Memorial Day weekend… picnics, parades, family time all whilst honoring our fallen service members. Today, we’ll be heading to a parade in CT where our friend’s oldest son will be marching with the Young Marines and thinking of friends and family who are no longer with us. I try to keep my blog very light, fun and upbeat but wanted to mention the true meaning of Memorial Day.
Unofficially, Memorial Day marks the start of the summer season! Especially here in New England where we see sailboats in the water and crowds in Newport! I want to share a lovely, fresh treasury with you.
Watermelon– red, green, white and black. So delicious and refreshing. Doesn’t it make you think of summer days?
Thank you tutuchicboutique for including my mini ribbon flag cupcake toppers in your beautiful treasury! And I agree- I am happy that is becoming watermelon season too! In a couple weeks, we’ll have moved to the Florida panhandle and I see lots of beach days for our family this summer… as well as our first family vacation for three years!
