Happy Memorial Day, Friends! We are back from Paris. The kids are in school today (it’s not a holiday here in France), but Ben Blair has the day off so we’re going to lunch.

My mother snapped these photos when we stopped at an American Military Cemetery after our visit to Mont St. Michel.

I find military cemeteries to be peaceful and sobering. So many graves it always makes my heart break. Most graves were marked with names and dates, but some had only the inscription above. Which makes my heart break even more.

I hope you’re enjoying your day off and I hope you get a chance to honor your military loved ones today.
