Happy Memorial Day

Wishing everyone a very happy Memorial Day! While this weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, it was also a bittersweet personal moment as my youngest graduated from high school.

  1. Dear Stacey,
    You have a lot to be proud of!
    Thank you for your lovely post for Memorial Day.
    My friends from Nantucket sent me this:
    “Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.”
    Happy Memorial Day.
    My best,
    Trudy Dujardin

  2. Stacey, Congratulations. Bitter Sweet–but also the start of new life paths. xo Mary

    I appreciate your comment about taking a moment to recognize those who sacrificed so much. It always feels strange however for people to wish others a Happy Memorial Day! Don’t mean to be critical just observing the odd custom that so ,any have adopted.
    Love your photos and wishing you and family all the best.

    This is such a lovely post, Stacey. Thank you for recognizing the many brave souls who have fought for our freedom that allows us to enjoy a life full of celebrations, like your youngest’s graduation from high school. We are fortunate to be Americans. God bless!

  6. Stacey, a bitter sweet experience has a little bit of both and you should be a proud mother as all your kids have graduated high school!
