Friday Favorites

Packing for a getaway to Mexico with Chris and a few of our good friends!

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children through the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, & handed on for them to do the same." - Ronald Reagan

"Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it, it flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it."

A few of my favorite quotes in honor of Memorial Day weekend. May we never forget those who sacrificed their lives fighting for our freedom!

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is in full swing, until June 4th, and here are a few of my favorites from the sale - you can save up to 40%!

I mentioned in yesterday's post that we normally head to the lake with Chris's family for Memorial Day weekend, but this year is a little different - we are headed to Mexico! Our good friends, Ashley and John, invited us to vacation with them at Ashley's family beach house they have in Cabo. We couldn't be more excited to not only visit Cabo and soak in the sun, but also to spend time with some friends that we don't see often enough since living in two different states.

We don't leave until Sunday morning, but I had to pack early because we are spending the first part of the weekend in my hometown to celebrate my grandfather turning 80! I am typing this from the house I grew up in, while sipping coffee with my mom. Being home always feels good, but being here to celebrate my grandfather, the backbone of our family, makes it even more special! 

Being with family, starting the week with good friends in Cabo, and celebrating Memorial Day has me feeling especially grateful going into the weekend. What are your plans? I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
