today is memorial day.
i hope that you’ll take a second from your bbq-ing, drinking and sunning to remember what this day (off of work which is totally bomb!) is really about.
i have been married to a marine for a little over a year and a half.
he hasn’t deployed yet so i’m happy to say that the only times we’ve really had to say goodbye were when he left for bootcamp and after one of us went to visit the other wherever that may have been.
but since i’ve lived on a military base, i’ve seen my friend’s husbands go on deployments and thankfully come back home from them.
i can only imagine how much they worry until he’s home again.
think about those who didn’t get to come home. and those girlfriends/fianceés/wives/children/mothers/fathers/siblings/aunts/uncles/grandparents/etc who won’t get to say hello to their service member loved one again.
god bless america and those who serve it.
okay! enough with all the deep talk!
enjoy your day off and i hope you eat some awesome grilled food!
