Blessings on Memorial Day

 We are blessed to enjoy the abundant blessings in our country today because of the sacrifices of service members who have served our nation and especially those that gave their lives so that we could live in freedom.

My husband and I have appreciated a restful and quiet holiday weekend at home. We enjoyed special friends for dinner Sunday night.

This was a yummy appetizer that was featured on Home is Where the Boat Is. Mary, I loved the sweet of the watermelon and the salty of the feta cheese just like you said! You can view Mary's wonderful blog here.

Linking to: Seasonal Sundays, Table Top Tuesday,  Wow Us Wednesday, nd Tablescape Thursday.


  1. Love the red, white & blue table setting and I especially love the flag appetizer! That is beautiful and sounds scrumptious!

  2. Bonnie, your table looks so festive and I'm excited to try that recipe for the Fourth coming up soon. Thank you so much!

    May we all remember with deep appreciation those who gave all so that we may continue to enjoy our freedom. blessings ~ tanna

    ps love the candlesticks in your heading
    just wondering do you light candles often,
    I adore them and love candlelight.

    I bet the ones on your table in the middle pic
    look magnificent when lit.


  7. Hi Bonnie! I love your vase centerpiece with your flowers & flag on your table! We are so fortunate in this country~ I feel humbled by the sacrifices made by our military men & women and their families. We had a quiet Memorial Day too~ staying off the lake with all the extra boats and traffic on the holiday weekend. I'm so glad you enjoyed the feta and watermelon (whew!:) Thanks so much for shout out~ I hope you have a wonderful week!
