Father's Day, Birthday, Anniversary, Oh My!

June is normally a busy month...summer is finally here and the yard looks green and alive. I look forward to celebrating lots of special days, although the one I used to celebrate every June 1st has ended. My dad passed away last February, but we were able to spend his birthday with my mother down in Florida. We raised a glass to him!

June 14th is Flag Day. Now, this might not even garner a mention on news channels, but U.S. military families around the world will raise their flag and remember that June 14th is more than Friday, the start of a weekend.  It commemorates our country adopting the flag on June 14, 1777 by a resolution of our Second Continental Congress. Did you know that the US Army also celebrates its birthday on this date? As the proud parent of an Army Veteran, I will raise the flag bright and early.

Sunday is a big day for two reasons. Thirty-four years ago, our second son was born early on the morning of June 16th which happened to be Father's Day! We will be grilling with relatives.

Wednesday June 19th hubby and I celebrate our wedding anniversary. I can still recall the the smell of the sea during our honeymoon on Prince Edward Island in Canada.
