Happy Memorial Day!

Ahhh…it's Memorial Day the unofficial Official start to summer.  
So fire up the barbecue.  

Today you have a free pass to sink your teeth into burgers, beers, baked beans, and brownies.
Woo hoo. Legit.

And for you fashionistas…you can now wear white.  Woo hoo.  Legit.
There is an unwritten rule about not wearing white before Memorial Day, but apparently some get around this rule by wearing what they call “alabaster.” No worries...I would never report you to the fashion police. I have your alabaster back.

The summer season in New England is short...sometimes it feels like we only get an Emeril's Essence...of summer.  It starts out on Memorial Day with a  BANG.  
Then it gets kicked up a notch. BAM!'s already the Fourth of July. BAM! BAM! ...and it's Labor Day.

Because New Englanders get short changed in the Warm Weather Department, we have to live each summer day to the fullest, otherwise we’re standing at Customer Service...looking for a refund. We have to find ways to pack everything into 9 BANGING weeks.

If I’m a little sparse with my blog postings this summer…that's because I’m busy cramming and banging summer in. Or maybe I got nothin’...which might not surprise you.


Memorial Day really is about honoring the men and women who have served, protected, and given their lives for our country and our freedom. 
 Thank you, Thank these courageous men and women.

So enjoy Memorial Day. Attend a parade, fly the American flag, wear red, white, and blue.
 Enjoy your picnics, pig roasts, and pig-outs.
Celebrate the American Way….because that is what the brave men and women, who have served and sacrificed for our country, would want you to do.

35 days until the Fourth of July. BAM!
