Memorial Day weekend is going to look a lot different for many of us this year. I’m super thankful for a sunny forecast and our backyard that’s blooming right now with lilacs and clematis. We’ll be gardening and soaking up the sun at home. Looking forward to taking some time off work for a change. Hope all of you have a great holiday weekend.
