Happy Memorial Day weekend. I hope everyone has a fun, safe, and joyous three days off (if you have a three day weekend.) Please take a moment to reflect on our brothers and sisters in uniform who give so much to protect our freedom. I have many family members who served and plan to send a note of "thanks" to each one. I want them to know I appreciate their sacrifices and those of their families.
This is Mt. Boney, part of the Santa Monica Moutain Range. The top part of the mountain is the view out my kitchen window. For this shot, I had to walk a few blocks. While there, I took an opportunity to breathe deep the cool sea air and feel the sun's warmth on my face. It gets so easy to overlook the natural beauty that surrounds us. Take a moment today to appreciate a simple view wherever you may be.
