{Happy Memorial Day}

Happy Memorial Day!!

When I woke up today, I immediately thought about my Dad and how blessed I am to be the daughter of a true American hero.  He is my #1 soldier, and I'm so honored that LTC Peter A. Leventis is my Daddy.  Growing up in a military family was the most amazing experience, and it makes days like today even more special to me.

One of my fondest childhood memories will always be our trip to Washington D.C. when Dad took us to the Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  Watching Dad find the names of his "brothers" who had lost their lives alongside him in the Vietnam War touched my heart like nothing else.  Today, I'm thinking about them.

We're flying our flag high, and I hope you will take some time out of your day and join me in honoring the service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our great country.  Gone but never forgotten, brave soldiers...May you rest in peace.
