My Favorite Veteran

Hello everyone. I apologize it's been so long since my last post. It's been so crazy around here and I know it's just going to get more hectic with the holidays coming. Speaking of which, here are the cards my ladies made Friday night at our workshop. We had a full house here with plenty of laughs...great girl's night that's for sure.

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of our vets, past and present, for their service and to post a picture of my favorite vet. This is my dad at about age 18. What a cutie!! ;)  Four years ago today he went home to Heaven, so this day has extra meaning for me and my family. It was fitting that he passed on Veterans Day as he was the most patriotic man I have ever known. There anything he wouldn't do for his country and he served it well. Take a moment to remember all who have, who are, or who will serve this country so that we have our freedom, for freedom isn't free!

I hope you have a great evening, and as always, thank you for stopping by.
