Memorial Day is such a special day for our family. We love taking time to celebrate the lives of our ancestors who have passed away, and honor those who have fought for our freedom. Maybe it’s because my mother was a 5th grade teacher of American history, but I can’t get enough of patriotic music, programs or podcasts.

This year we decided to try a Memorial Day service in a different city near us and it was SO incredible! There were veterans who spoke, Utah’s Attorney General spoke, musical numbers, bagpipes and everything patriotic and beautiful. I’m so thankful for all who fight to keep this special country free. God bless America!
