Memorial Day....

We enjoyed pancakes with blueberry sauce, fresh strawberries and whipped cream.

red, white, and blue

I couldn't help but think of the sacrifices those in our country have made so that all of our families can sleep at night resting in the promise of freedom.  My father and all of our grandfathers served our country and we are proud of their service.  All of our men returned home from war safely, but the reality is that not everyone enjoyed that blessing.  To all of the servicemen, past and present, and the families that miss them - we thank you.


  1. Beautiful post, Kirsten. And, yum! So wish I was dining with you this AM. :o) Happy Monday!

  2. Breakfast looks good.

    We have rememberance and Anzac Days here . Those are our days for reflecting on those people who sacrifice their own lives to keep the rest of us safe and to thank those who continue to do so.
