i don't get a chance to go home too often, but when i do in the summertime its always best when filled with a few lazy days, family, highschool friends and trenton-y traditions. going out for breakfast at mom's, iced capps, and late night zorbas coney island trips. today however my mom and i walked up to the memorial day parade to watch all of the veterans and cheer on the THS band. there's just something so proud about watching my brother lead the drumline down the street (me having been drum major of that same band just 3 years ago). those little flags they hand out and listening to the bagpipers play taps just makes me yearn for a hotdog and an apple fritter. as ill be gone out of the country for the 4th of july this year, memorial day will be my little slice of americana.
hope everyone enjoys the sunshine and long weekend!
