Red, White, & Blue

Another treasure find at the thrift store this weekend! This was my Memorial Day look and of course, I had to wear our beautiful flag colors.  Lately, shopping for shorts has been a mission. I can never seem to find a pair of shorts that call my attention; however, I'm happy I found these cute denim ones! How cool is it when you can turn a dress into a top? I bet you didn't even think this was a top huh? Indeed it is my friends. That's the key, find pieces that are versatile and easy to work with.

Hubby and I just chilled at our place and reminisced about our war stories. As he played out his experiences while fighting the war in Iraq, I thank God how he always kept him safe. However, it's still saddens me to hear that some of his battle buddies didn't make it. We must be thankful for every moment we have because you never know when your time is up. Those who have fallen will never be forgotten.
