As the sun sets on the long weekend, I’m reflecting on everything we have to be grateful for - including and especially those who sacrifice their lives to serve and protect us - both on and off the front lines🙏🏻🇺🇸 Thank you to all who have served and continue to do so.
I’m also celebrating my dad/friend and mentors birthday this weekend. His service has been in varying (non military) forms, but his commitment to being of service is clear and constant through his work, and general way of living - aka helping all of those around him. He is a great example of someone who has been able to serve and protect without being on the ‘front lines.’ We are endlessly grateful for the service, protection and love he provides to our family. So I’m also celebrating him today. Happy birthday, Dad (even though you’ll only see this through someone else’s account 😜🎉💕) Political fashion side-note:
I set aside my ‘I don’t wear logo/messages’ rule in favor of a rare patriotic sartorial moment this weekend. It felt good to set aside my frustrations about the state of affairs in the US and just focus on the [quite long] list of freedoms I’m grateful to have as an American. 🙏🏻 🧥 (And, I decided I can get used to the modified all-American ‘logo’ and get some use out of this @blanknycjeans via @housingworks find🇺🇸 )
