No Memorial Day weekend is complete without visiting a cemetery. Many have special services just for the weekend. Remembering those in military service who have died for their country is the whole point of the holiday. But many of us also extend it to remember those in our own families who have passed on.
Whatever your reason, be sure to include a trip to the cemetery this weekend. I’ve packed you an easy outfit to wear.
Start with a maxi dress. You may be sitting in a lawn chair or standing for a while and you’ll want to feel comfortable. I would normally add a pair of sandals to this outfit, but at the cemetery, the grass may be wet or you may encounter a critter or two (read snakes) that rarely sees visitors. And an easy pair of tennies might be the better choice. Last of all, don’t forget your shades. It may be sunny, but you may be emotional as well. For either purpose, they’ll serve their job.
I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend next week! And now you know what to pack!
