There are a lot of things I'm grateful for, and though I have down times and frustrations, I'm always so lucky to have weekends like this past one to remind me how full and wonderful my life really is. So, in no particular order, here are some odds and ends that made me smile or reminded me how blessed I am over the past three days.

- First, this weekend, of course, wasn't just any 3-day weekend... it was Memorial Day, a time to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. That right there is enough to make me feel blessed and lucky; that those I know who have served have come home, and that there are those who do choose to fight to keep me free. The Pioneer Woman re-posted some beautiful pictures that people took to represent Coming Home. Check them out. They are beautiful, though some are sad.

- Watching Gwennie eat the first strawberry from our garden!

There is just something amazing about eating something you grew yourself!

- Putting in our A/C units... gravy its hot outside already! But we have so so much to look forward to this summer (mommy & tot swim class, Cape Cod, a father's day baseball game, my 30th birthday, camping, etc), so I'm excited that its all almost here.

- New babies. A friend just gave birth to her first daughter this past Friday (who I will hopefully be snuggling Wednesday night), and another friend will be having her second child next week. New life is the ultimate blessing. Also, the snugly little 7 week old that I got to hold for almost an hour yesterday (a friend of our friend's who had a Memorial Day BBQ). Holding tiny ones like that remind me of how big my girl is.

- For my whole family, they may be a little crazy sometimes, but they are amazing. And I am lucky.

How was your long weekend?
