Happy Memorial Day! I hope your plans today involve relaxation in the sunshine with friends and family. Here in the states, today marks the unofficial start of what I consider to be the best season: summer! Essley and I will be spending the morning and early afternoon in the car, headed back to Chicago after a fun weekend with my sister in Indianapolis. Robbie comes home today too after a long weekend working a music festival (I know this makes me sound ancient, but the dude had a show last night that started at 2 AM; I am exhausted just thinking about it). So our Memorial Day plans consist of a long, lazy late afternoon/evening hang on the back deck with fresh margaritas and veggie burgers. There's also a place in my heart today for those of you who have lost loved ones while serving in the military.
Today also begins the last weekend of the month, which means it's time for the official June sponsor call here at Bubby and Bean. If you're interested in being a part of the blog and our social media channels next month, click here for more info, stats, press, and pricing. The featured ad space is booked, but there are a few of each of the other sizes still available.
Now go outside, take off your shoes, and enjoy this beautiful day! (And if you're working today, boooo, I'm sorry! Make sure you get outside for a while after work. That's an order.)
