We recognize Memorial Day to celebrate the lives of the men and women who have died while serving in the military. Around the same time we celebrate the accomplishments of all the graduates who are about to undergo a major life change as they decide what they want to do with their lives. And how better to celebrate the lives of the people we cherish than with a family meal. Barbecues will be thrown nationwide with staples like Corn on the Cob, Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, Shrimp, and more. And what party is complete without dessert decorated to fit the occasion? Red, white and blue cupcakes, or sheet cakes decorated with graduation caps. In honoring those we’ve lost and those who’s lives are just beginning we come together around the table to share our stories and we are reminded of the importance of family and friends who love and support us.
