memorial day barbeque



memorial day weekend seems to always sneak up just in the nick of time. i was beginning to feel swamped with wedding planning, homework assignments and just the overall stress that life has to offer. so i proceeded to take full advantage of this lazy weekend and do just that, be lazy. good thing too, because i was beginning to feel a little under the weather, boo. i took some muscle relaxers to lessen the pain, and i now write this fully drugged up - disregard any spelling errors i may make in the process. 
over the weekend i laid around with mr. taylor,  ate some good ol' fashioned BBQ, and re-watched some oldies such as 10 Things I Hate About You. p.s. one of my friends is an extra in this movie. i always have to mention this whenever i watch it. probably because it makes me feel like i'm somehow important to the making of this movie or something, HA. one thing I do regret, however, was not participating in all the great sales! oh well, there's always next year. the rest of the night was spent giving a tour of the city to a friend of a friend from out of town. seattle is always a beautiful place to come visit. preferably during the summer time when the sun actually decides to show it's bright shiny face. please sun, make your long lasting appearance already!
i also made sure to really focus on the importance of this holiday. my momma had one of her letters read on the radio talking about her father who served in WWII and i had a remembrance retweeted by A Fine Frenzy honoring my other grandfather who passed away over 15 years ago. i love hearing about his particular war story. my grandpa otto was actually shot and killed on the battle ground and pronounced dead. A few minutes later he was revived. he told our family that he remembers seeing a light and meeting all of his loved ones who had passed earlier on. since that day he said that he was no longer afraid of death. isn't that amazing!!!??! miss you grandpa! how all did you celebrate this memorial day weekend? any great stories you'd like to share or loved ones you'd like to remember?
