Happy Memorial Day + Military Ball

Happy Memorial Day everyone! 
I hope you all have a great day with your family and friends! 
During your time though, please take a moment and remember those that weren’t so lucky to come home from war after fighting for our freedom. 
Thursday night, Travis and I attended his Military Ball and at every ball there is always an empty table with only 1 chair that symbolizes those that didn’t come home. There is one candle to represent hope, one rose to represent the loved ones of the fallen, a yellow ribbon representing loyally waiting for those serving to come home, a wine glass turned over to represent that the fallen soldier can not participate in the toast, one place setting with a lemon wedge on the plate representing the bitter loss of a loved one and then salt on the plate to represent the tears shed for those lost. 
It is a touching ceremony so I hope all of you to remember those that could not come home to their loved ones.
Now on to a slightly happier note, thought I would share some pics from that night. 
 Travis and I all dressed up for the ball.
He sure is handsome isn’t he?! 🙂

It was nice to get all dressed and go out without the girls for a little dinner and dancing.
