ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY

Happy Tuesday! Hopefully you survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday! I missed out on Black Friday shopping this year. Instead we were on a 12 hour flight home that consisted of 3 plane changes, screaming babies and lots of coughing and sneezing neighbors. Yesterday I woke up sick as a dog... oh the joys of traveling over the holidays. I blame that old women sitting next to me who didn't understand the concept of covering her mouth. Boo! Oh well, traveling back to happier times.

Thanksgiving Day we headed to Arlington National Cemetery. One of the things I am always so grateful for is my country and the men and women who protect it. To my grandparents, father, my four brothers and sisters. Thank you! It was such a humbling experience to see all of those beautiful white tomb stones and the changing of the guard. To visit the grave sites of such incredible people who have made a difference in this world. The Fall season was still very present the day we visited, and all of those luscious trees, the impeccable groundskeeping and the backdrop of the Washington Monument was simply breathtaking. If you are ever in the DC area, please take a moment to visit this place.
