I am so excited to spend Memorial Day with friends here in Charlotte! Having the day to just relax, hang out and have fun with family and friends is so encouraging and rejuvenating. But today is much bigger than cookouts, tossing a football in the park and spending time with loved ones.

Let’s all join together in remember the whole purpose of today: to honor the veterans and active duty members of the military. Their sacrifice and service has afforded us the opportunity to live in a beautiful country and enjoy the freedom we have today.

In a simple act of gratitude, remember to say thank you to someone that is serving currently or has served our country in years past.

And to all that may be reading this blog that have served our country, THANK YOU! You are appreciated!
