Hey hey hey!!  It’s the weekend, and I hope all of you get an extra day off to celebrate Memorial Day and pay tribute to our veterans.  According to historians, Memorial Day actually started in my hometown of Columbus, Mississippi when the women of the town went to Friendship Cemetery to put flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers.  I think several towns claim to have started Memorial Day, but there is also a lot of history in my childhood church that was at one time transformed into a hospital during the war. There’s a lot of fascinating history there, and I still am so amazed that my hometown church is almost 200 years old!

Christian actually has the entire weekend off (including Monday!), so we plan to catch up with some friends of ours in Laguna, and I’m crossing my fingers my brother’s family makes it down to visit us in Orange County for a pool day.  We’ve got the pool floats, a fridge full of booze and food to grill and bikes to ride – let’s do this summertime!

When I put this ensemble together, I felt both comfortable and totally myself. You know when you put those pieces together that feel so “you?” I strutted down the stairs to Christian and was all, “this outfit is so me.”
