memorial day from a marine wife

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.
christmas card
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!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
