Dear favorite picture of the week:
You are exquisite. You are American. You are our country.
Okay, you're not really a recipe per say, you're more of a thrown together food with seasoning. But, man are you delicious. I don't know WHAT it is, but I can't get enough of sweet potatoes this week. I am jonesing for em baked, as a hash brown or just cut into bite sized and baked with EVOO, salt and garlic powder. So easy, Whole30 okayed and sooooo delicious!
You are so incredibly movie, I really don't think words do you justice. A lil boy wanted to pay tribute to those who died on Omaha beach and I can't think of a better tribute for Memorial Weekend. I was pretty teary through the whole video, but, oh my word, the moment at the 5:00 mark had me sobbing. Project Vigil is a testament to the heart of Americans and I am so thankful such children exist. #taps #tearsstreaming #thankyou
Dear fallen college friend,
Oh Shane, Memorial Day is so hard. So very hard. I miss you every day, but I really miss you this weekend. You were such an amazing man, such a kind and generous soul and the world is a lot dimmer without your gregarious personality and smile. I know your family misses you so much and I know your grave will receive a lot of love this weekend. I promise to see you in the next few weeks, it's been awhile since I came to visit. Thank you, Shane! Thank you for your sacrifice, thank you for your courage and thank you for serving our country. You will never be forgotten! < 3

Happy three day weekend, y'all. I hope that the weather cooperates with you this weekend and gives you a good time. Be safe with the activities, wear sunscreen, don't drink too much alcohol and drink lots of water. And please, take a moment to remember what this weekend was created to celebrate. This weekend isn't about the beach, the pool, the right outfit, the perfect cookout food or drinks, but rather it's about those who have served our country and are no longer with us. We take time to remember those that put the call of their country ahead of the call of themselves and we say thankful for helping make this country so great. I wish y'all the best weekend! < 3
