This weekend we honor our bravest military men and women who serve, fight, and die for this country.    As I was looking for an image, to post, I came across an article on with a quote that was surprising and sad, Only 55% of Americans know what Memorial Day is about.”   Let’s take a moment on this holiday to remember and honor our finest soldiers.

Call me a Yankee Doodle Dandy, but on the patriotic holidays, I like to wave the good ol’ red, white and blue.  I was imagining a weekend visiting friends, and you are not sure of the agenda. The items in these two collages will cover almost any weekend event, from backyard barbeque, to cocktails and fireworks, to dinner and dancing.   Mix and match this classic assortment all summer long. Don’t forget that Fourth of July and Bastille Day are coming up soon which sport the same stylish shades.

   Cocktails, dinner, dancing and fireworks.

Beach, boat and biking. Shopping and strolling, watching the parade.
