This week I am getting ready for a house full of family and guests for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. I am so excited for our out of town guest to visit!!!


I love Memorial Day! Growing up all of my childhood and teen years in a military family gave me a deep understanding and appreciation for heroic effort and great sacrifice of our military men and women. I saw it firsthand in my own home! 




Tomorrow my dear Mother and I will visit Indiantown Gap National Cemetery in the rolling hills of  central Pennsylvania. It is the most beautiful, peaceful, well kept and honorable place. It is where dignity and resolve and selflessness resides.  Indiantown Gap is where my Father rests. 


If you have never visited a National Cemetery I encourage you to go! Especially for Memorial Day. It should be a mandatory requirement for every American citizen! You will never forget it your whole life long!
