Photo Friday | Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend is here, marking a long weekend for many and the unofficial start of summer. It's most important to remember why we have Memorial Day, so please take a moment to honor the male and female service members who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country.

If you are planning a gathering or activities to take advantage of the long weekend, remember to be sustainable!

Reduce waste by choosing reusable dinnerware, cups, napkins and utensils and recycling as much as possible. Drink cans are recyclable and glass bottles are most often not (depending on where you live), so remember that when you're shopping for drink options. Provide a pitcher of water as an alternative to bottled water.

Head out to your local farmers market or grocery store as well if you're planning a cookout and support your local businesses.

Our Memorial Day weekend plans are looking pretty rained out at this point, so apparently that is what I get for hoping for rain after three weeks of drought (and trying to plan an amazing birthday trip for my husband!)

Hopefully you will have better weather where you are, and weren't planning a trip to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach/Destin area!

Reminiscing on Memorial Day 2014.

See y'all back here next week!
