Rose Golden Memorial

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend. That it was filled with lots of barbecues, good company, and great weather. At least that was my weekend :) This year my husband and I decided to do something special for Memorial Day. Coming from a military background ourselves, we thought it only appropriate to start a annual tradition to visit our State Veteran's Memorial Cemetery to pay our respects to those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. It means so much to us to see men and women in uniform serving our country and I feel (in my humble opinion) that they don't get enough acknowledgement. Everyday they are making sacrifices for this country, whether through their time or life, they are giving up something many of us wouldn't dream of doing for others. I thank all of the soldiers here and no longer with us for all they have done and are doing for this country. We salute you.

Since we were going to be out in the sun all day I wanted to wear something light and airy. With the warm temperatures I wanted to look pretty and feel comfortable in my clothes. So, I threw on my lightweight chambray dress, a soft white tee from H&M tying it in a knot on the side, and slipped on my gold topped flip flops. To infuse more color in my easy outfit, I decided to put on my rose gold/coral necklace from H&M with rose gold accessories.

Sometimes it's all about the accessories to make an outfit feel just a bit more special and pulled together.

It was a truly humbling experience walking through the Veteran's Memorial. Seeing the names of people I didn't know and didn't know me, but cared enough to protect this country. I hope to continue to visit every year to thank them and remember them always.

Never forget...
