With each passing year, I grow less interested in talking about Memorial Day recipes and retail sales. Perhaps, it’s because as the conflicts overseas drag on and expand, I become more impressed by the men and women of our military. And those who have made the ultimate sacrifice deserve more from Memorial Day than a reason to save 40% on a final sale t-shirt or make a flag-shaped fruit salad.
So this year, instead of spending money on discounted clothing, I’m donating to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. TAPS is a highly rated, well-respected charity that provides support services to the loved ones of fallen soldiers.
Have a safe weekend with your friends and family. xoxo, Belle
