Memorial Weekend

Hello and I hope all are having a Fab-tastic Friday! Also, This is a loooong Holiday weekend-Memorial Day on Monday-and most people have a couple of days to relax and celebrate here in America. 

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.[1] The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May,[2] originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers.[3] By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged, and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service.[1] It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

I really don't feel like writing too much in the blog since I am pumped for the holiday weekend!! I will be celebrating the Holiday with my lovely brothers and their family!! I always have Fun with my brothers especially now that we are older!! 
 Well, I gotta go and take care of some business and maybe plan my holiday itinerary for this weekend. So, Have a Blessed Day and a safe and enjoyable Holiday weekend if you live in America!!
