Summer is here!

It's not the official date in June that starts my summer, it's Memorial Day weekend. You too? I absolutely love everything about summer...being outside with my family, the sun, the warmth, the beach, wakeboarding, tandeum bike rides with my husband, outdoor showers, al fresco dining, sunset boat rides, landscaping and of course, dipping my toes in the Hamptons waters! What is it about the summer that makes you tick?

I tend to be a very grateful person, but today even more so. I'm especially mindful of the reason for my freedom. Thank you to all who have served and to those who continue to protect our country's freedom. My American flag is flying proudly today!

Last night we enjoyed a sunset boat ride. I watched the sun settle behind the trees thinking of how grateful I am to be an American.

Enjoy your Memorial Day!
