To readers in the United States, happy Memorial Day! For Americans serving overseas — please arrive home safely.
Many of us had long weekends for the holiday; I spent the weekend traveling. A friend of mine got married recently, and rather than having the traditional wedding, their marriage was private and followed by a honeymoon; when they returned, they celebrated with friends and family with a traditional reception. I traveled with my girlfriend to upstate New York to participate in the festivities. I also had a chance to revisit the town that I lived in from age two to ten. It was my first time back in many years, and the town has changed, with more big-box stores, more chain restaurants, more highways, but still a lot of undeveloped land.
Today, I’m back in New York City, celebrating Memorial Day with my girlfriend’s family. Today, MoneyCrush is joining as a partner for the latest giveaway in Giveaway May at Consumerism Commentary. Every weekday this month, including today’s holiday, Consumerism Commentary is providing a luck reader with a prize.
