Memorial Day weekend

So the holiday weekend has passed. Reflecting back, I find that there was a lot more I could have gotten done, but found spending the time with family and friends a lot more enjoyable.

To me, spending time with family is important. I grew up adoring my grandparents, and thought nothing even in high school of going over to visit my grandma after school just for fun. I am trying to instill that same love of family in Jennifer, and when weekends like this come up where we can really just kick back, relax, and enjoy our time, I find it necessary to put the other stuff on the back burner. The gardens can be weeded later. The house can be picked up another time. With busy schedules it sometimes becomes difficult to get together as often as we would like. A holiday weekend where everyone expects to fire up the grill, pour a few drinks, and just enjoy the time is rare, so I was glad we were able to truly enjoy it. I ended the weekend with a smile and a happy heart...who could ask for more?

Now that the daylight lasts a little longer, maybe I can catch up on some of that stuff I didn't get done yet.
