Today is always a somber day in America. Memorials, remembrance ceremonies, it’s the one day a year that our country seems to pull together and be very patriotic. It’s also a sad day for many, those who mourn the loss of loved ones, those missing loved ones off in unknown places fighting a war many do not understand. What I always remember, is where I was 13 years ago when the peaceful existence we thought we lived in was shattered. So many things changed in that instant.
That said, my house is showing their patriotism today. My kids’ school has ceremonies planned around their flagpoles, and they are all in red, white & blue. So I joined in, as it seemed wrong somehow to wear a pink dress when everyone else is wearing the colours of our country:
Dress: Kate Spade Mariella
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Handbag: Kate Spade
May you hold your loved ones a little tighter today, as we remember how fragile our existence truly is. To all those serving our country, thank you. The freedoms we have in our country would not be here without your sacrifice, and the sacrifices of so many other before you. 1774 was when we became a free country, but 2001 is when we realized that freedom should never be taken for granted.
Until next time,
