Memorial Weekend Festivities 

Hope everyone had a fabulous long weekend! I know I did! As well as having a case of the Mondays as I started out my work morning. Even though it wasn’t really Monday; I’m sure you get my drift. 

When I think about the things that have been going on lately, I sure can count my blessings. We have been scrambling around doing last minute things to get ready for whatever day our bundle of joy decides to make his appearance. Working on the house to get it move in ready (hopefully soon!) My little sister moved three hours away from us (insert tears!) My mom is still going staying strong while continuing her chemo treatments. Hoping for more good reports from Mayo this summer!! She needs to be healthy for her first grandbaby! 

But through it all we remain strong, and there for each other. Life has been a little crazy with everything. So this past weekend, to be able to relax and spend time with each other; and do some things for ourself was just what we needed.  

Nate and I had our own adventure getting our appliances from Des Moines. Stopped at Slims Market on the way home for some awesome, fresh produce! If you have never been there make sure to check it out sometime: west of Story City, Ia. We even ditch hunted some asparagus. Saturday, Nate was supposed to have a day to himself to fish with his friend but instead accompanied me to JunqueFest to do some antiquing and have lunch together. We then topped off our day attending a wedding. And Sunday evening spent it with his family at the campgrounds! We all ate dinner, roasted marshmallows and made pies over the fire. Talk about relaxing! 

I hope your weekend was as relaxing and blessed as mine was. I hope everyone took the time to remember and reflect on why it is we have that three day weekend. Our freedom did not come free. I am so thankful for the brave men and women who served and are serving to help protect our nation 🇺🇸
