Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today

May 22, 2009

That's right, I am heading out the door on this glorious Friday morning to an extra long weekend.

No matter which country you are in, this beautiful tradition of a long weekend is one in which you must indulge. So in celebration of Memorial Day on Monday (always observed on the last Monday of May) I have granted Little Roo an extra day off from school today and we are heading to Shenandoah Valley, VA.

Memorial Day Long weekend not only honors the fallen U.S soldiers but marks the unofficial start of summer. Public swimming pools open, BBQ wafts through the air and it is once again socially acceptable to wear white pants (I personally do not think there are many occasions to wear white pants but each to their own).

Happy Memorial Day!
