Memorial Day Quotes We Love

Memorial Day may be our unofficial kick-off to summer, but it’s also a time to honor and remember those that have served our country and who are serving today. You may be spending your weekend at the pool or at a backyard barbecue (maybe social distancing, too), but it’s important to take a moment to honor the history of this glorious day.
