Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

 I have several family members who have served in the military including three of my grandfathers. One who served in World War II as a fighter pilot in the Asia Pacific. My aunt served as an MP and served overseas in South Korea. I appreciate all of the military families all over this country who sacrifice so much to keep all of us safe and free. We are truly blessed and thankful for your service to the United States.

This is our family's first year in Virginia Beach. We live about 20 minutes away from the ocean front, and we are so excited to live the Beach Life this summer! We already have plans to take surfing lessons and spend many days in the sun.  I wish you all a happy and safe Memorial Day!

This post is to also show off an Etsy treasury to celebrate this awesome holiday that kicks off the summer of 2013!
Our Sunny Yellow Pixie Tutu Dress is featured in an Etsy Treasury called Three Day Weekend.

The treasury features several sunny yellow items available for sale on Etsy. I personally love the watercolor art by Karen Faulkner titled Spring Morning.

 The Vintage Yellow Rose Plate would make a lovely gift for a special person's summer birthday, or as a decorative piece for a sun room.

  Also be sure to stop by the curator's Etsy shop. BonBonsTreats stocks a variety of beaded jewelry with several styles of sterling silver earrings available for purchase.
