Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, and I for one am ready for it! I’m not always a huge fan of hot days, but I’ve got so many fun things planned this summer that I don’t even care.
Today I thought I’d share a few tips for getting the most out of this holiday weekend!
Whether it’s an ocean, a lake, or the plastic kiddie pool in your backyard, the best place to spend Memorial Day weekend is near water.
Go ahead and commit to being on island time. That means slow down and just cruise. Come 5:00 pm tomorrow, everyone will be rushing to their long weekend. Realize that you can’t do anything about the traffic, and your trip will be much more enjoyable.
Stripes are required for this nautical-themed holiday. It’s just a fact. Accept it.
At our house, the bourbon has moved to the back of the cabinet to make way for the lighter, fresher spirits. Celebrate this weekend by testing out a few new drinks!
As wonderful as relaxing on the beach while wearing your stripes and sipping your cocktail is, don’t forget the meaning of this special holiday. Thank you to those who have paid the ultimate price so that we may know freedom.
And lastly, what would Memorial Day be without some fabulous shopping?! Here are just a few of the sales going on this weekend that can help you get your home ready for summer.
