We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

Another American tradition is to host a BBQ on Memorial Day, signifying remembrance but also the start of summer for many families. I will be celebrating Memorial Day in California as I start a new adventure with a summer internship (stay tuned because I will disclose the details next week). Here I'm wearing the prettiest summer dress, sandals, choker, and bracelet--all by Hollister. May your weekend be filled with loving memories and the start of a fantastic summer! Xoxo, Shelly
