Live Well: Happy Memorial Day

How gorgeous is this photo? Seriously. I need to get outside today and try to see this sight for myself.

So far we've spent Memorial Day weekend eating decadently and sharing our love of San Francisco with my husband's sweet sister (who left today...so sad!). In the past I've spent Memorial Day with my family, competing in sibling swim races and eating corn on the cob at a neighborhood club, but today my husband and I will be taking naps, doing chores, and curling up on the couch to watch Netflix. While a part of me misses the more traditional Memorial Day activities, I truly can't think of a better way to celebrate the meaning of Memorial Day than to reflect on the wonderful life I live right here, right now, with my husband, and all the people who have made this life possible. We're blessed beyond measure.

P.S. - Any time I try to comprehend the extent of the sacrifices veterans make for this country, I think of these photos. No matter how many times I see them, their power never seems to lessen.
