Memorial Day. I woke up with the heaviest heart. I do every year on this day. In fact I bawled my eyes out into my huband's chest this morning. Knowing how many Marine brothers he has lost over the last few wars he's been in breaks my heart for him and those families. Friends, whatever you do today please take a moment of silence and gratitude for our Fallen Heroes. It is because of their selfless acts we are able to enjoy this day. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
F R E E D O M isn't Free. I am forever grateful and indebted to those brave men and women. Please join me and raise your glass for our Fallen Heroes today!! Cheers. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ€πŸ™

Did y'all see we picked 9lbs of blueberries today!!! πŸ˜‚ Looks like a blueberry crostata is in order tomorrow and maybe a few other yummy treats. I did make the boys a yummy blueberry reduction sauce for their vanilla ice cream after dinner. They loved it!! Have a blessed night friends and please remember what tomorrow is really about. Take a few moments of silence or say a prayer for our Fallen Heroes and families. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Thank you!! Would my tagged friends like to share if they can? πŸ‹πŸƒ

You see these brave faces? They are impressed upon our hearts and minds. Not just this weekend but every single day, they are my husband's fallen Marine brothers. I remember each day clearly when I learned of their deaths. My husband went to combat with them. Top four heroes in Afghanistan and bottom hero in Iraq last year. When it happens you don't know who and then you get the call, relieved it wasn't your own husband yet terrified for that family whose Marine it is. This last deployment I waited over an hour pacing back and fourth in my room screaming to God please don't let it be my husband. I praise Jesus daily it wasn't him, yet my heart aches it was any one of them. These Marines you see gave their lives for you and I, this country and for their Marine brothers. They are selfless heroes. Friends, if there's anything you do this weekend please take a moment to recognize our fallen heroes. Those that selflessly put their lives on the line for our freedom and sacrificed their lives for ours. That is why we observe Memorial Day. The cost of freedom is high and it is a debt that cannot be repaid. God bless those Gold star families! I am forever grateful. πŸ™ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

G O O D M O R N I N G friends! My family and I are heading to the beach today.... It's pretty much heaven on earth. North Topsail is less than 8 miles from my house. I will miss it so much when we move. Soaking it all in while I can. Have a wonderful day everyone! 🌿

S U M M E R Cocktail anyone!? Who's ready for Summer nights, cold drinks, late sunsets, smores and swimming until you look like a prune! ME!! Wanted to share a simple and low calorie summer cocktail, Spiked Strawberry Lemonade. Now that I have your attention let me tell you how to make your own! πŸ‹πŸƒ

Serving makes four 6oz glasses.
Fill each cup with crushed ice. Mix your fav low calorie lemonade. Add 4oz to each cup. Muddle 8 strawberries and add evenly to each glass. Give a quick stir. Add 2oz of your preferred brand of vodka and give another stir. Add a little lemon squeeze. Garnish with a strawberry and lemon wedge. And done! Easy, 80 calories and soooo good!

Starting today you will be spammed until Monday with the reminders of why we observe Memorial Day. ❀ It's the military wife in me. The day is so important and dear to my families heart. My husband lost 5 Marine brothers while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. I will be sharing a photo of these brave men this weekend. They are forever in our hearts and will never be forgotten. Each day we are indebted to them and their families for their ultimate sacrifice. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Why do we observe Memorial Day? Some people confuse it with Veteran's Day but
Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women whoΒ died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans. Please know the difference because it is so important to those gold star families. Their loss of their loved one is unfathomable. Be thinking and praying for those families this weekend. It is because of their sacrifices we are able to enjoy a long weekend. Thank you friends. β€πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ God bless!!!

Life is busy right now for my family but I am so EXCITED for what the Lord is preparing us for. At this point in our moving process and my mission's trip coming up so soon I would usually feel anxious but I truly feel excited. I am excited to see how God will use me in Haiti!! I am excited for the new adventures my family will have when moving to VA!! It is amazing what happens when we put your faith in the Lord. Let go and let God in your life. Whatever it is. God is so so good friends! πŸŒΉπŸƒ

You guys! This shelf is no longer hanging! 😭 Had to take it down and patch the holes for the movers next week. I took this photo of it all decorated one last time yesterday. My fresh hydrangeas sure looked beautiful up there. This shelf was one of my first DIY projects here on IG. It has been so fun to decorate this space. Scroll back through my feed to see it's many looks! Not sure it will hang in our new home because I have some new shelving ideas in mind. Gonna miss this pretty view...Thanks for all the love you've shown it these last few months! πŸŒΉπŸƒ

Happy Monday! So my house is in total disarray right now. Decor is off the walls, piles and bins are everywhere. πŸ™ˆ All but the dining room! Movers come next week and we are prepping and getting everything ready. We've went through bins, closets, dressers you name it. Anyway that is not what this post is about! πŸ˜‚ Sorry my mind is crazy right now. Haha! I wanted to share with you all a couple of things. 1. We chalk painted the dining room table last week white ( here is a peek) Loveee it. 2. These linen chairs from @worldmarket will anchor the ends of this table at the new house! We've had them for a few years just didn't use them at the table anymore. So glad I didn't sell them! The 4 rustic crossback chairs from Restoration Hardware will of course balance each side of the table. I cannot wait to see it all pulled together with the new light fixture and rug. Hurry June!!!❀ .
