In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
As a Nation, many of us have today off in honor of Memorial Day. Families and friends gather to celebrate with picnics and fun. I hope we all remember to pause and give thanks to the many men and women who have given their lives defending our Country. My Dad was in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict. This medal is on display at Memorial Park here in Arlington Heights. Thank you to all who have given unselfishly!
