Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

"I thank God for my life. And for the stars and stripes. May freedom forever fly. Let it ring. Salute the ones who died. The ones that give their lives. So we don?t have to sacrifice. All the things we love"
~Zac Brown Band

Something has changed within me 

Something is not the same

I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap! 

It's time to try

Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down! 

I'm through accepting limits

''cause someone says they're so

Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know! 
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost! 
I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down

So if you care to find me

Look to the western sky! 
As someone told me lately:
"Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly!"
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
Take a message back from me
Tell them how I am
Defying gravity
I'm flying high
Defying gravity
And soon I'll match them in renown
And nobody in all of Oz
No Wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down! 

this is from one of my favorite musicals Wicked. it speaks to me.

I will be glad and rejoice in your love. For you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul. Praise be to the LORD, for he showed me the wonders of his love.

Psalms 31:7&21


I have always loved Bethenny Frankel since the moment she opened her quick witted mouth on Real Housewives of New York. From there she got her own show on Bravo Bethenny Getting Married then Bethenny Ever After. She has 2 cookbooks called SkinnyGirl Dish and Naturally Thin, 1 fiction novel called Skinnydipping, and 1 inspirational/biography called A Place of Yes. She has skin care, a cleanse, a shape wear line, and a yoga video. But what i love the most is her Skinnygirl Cocktails she has produced. It just is easy to drink, well maybe too easy. You just pour over ice and your done. She recently added some new drinks to the Skinnygirl cocktails family and i can't wait to try them all. Bottoms up everyone!!
