{l: land of the free}

i decided to do something a little different today, and i’m so glad i did. yesterday evening, our town had its dedication ceremony for the field of honor. the field of honor is a field of over 2,200 American flags, honoring those who have and are currently serving our country. it really is a beautiful sight to see.

i went, with the kids in tow and as i was getting sutton situated in the ergo, a bus carrying veterans pulled into the parking lot. it was really something to see them all walking the field of honor, some with their families, and stopping at the base of the cross. we were able to chat with a few of them, and you could tell that the field just meant so much to them. so, go thank a soldier, a veteran, a wounded warrior. be sure to also thank their families who sacrifice so much themselves. a little thank you and a smile goes a long way.

the field was muddy, y’all. in fact, i spotted a few people walking through barefoot.
