If you ask us, today is one of the greatest days of the year. We get to honor soldiers who gave their lives so we can relish in the land of the free the home of the brave. Plus, it's the unofficial debut of summer. It's a day of observing our past, making new memories, and soaking up some well-deserved rays.
High school marching bands will lead heroes dressed in military regalia down Main Streets across the country, while hands of all ages wave tiny flags in support. But, as the band plays their final note and marches off into the horizon, the sights and sounds of summer will fill the air. Giggles will reverberate through the warm air and fade into the mist of a sprinkler. The smell of meat from a sizzling grill will permeate your senses. Neighbors who haven't spoken for a season or two will gather for small talk and beverages. Summer road trips will be plotted out. And, the biggest summertime kickoff of all—the pool sign will turn from closed to open. At long last, summertime can begin.
We hope that everyone's Memorial Day weekend is filled with peaceful observance, perfect weather, cookouts galore, and summertime shenanigans you'll recall year after year.
Have fun, stay safe, and enjoy the dazzling views.
