So very thankful...

Hi everyone!!!

Today I am sharing this layout on the Blue Moon Blog and I thought I would share it here also!!! (My layout will be live on the Blue Moon blog at 8AM MST)

On the weekend before September 11th, my family went the 'The Healing Fields' in Tempe, Arizona. It is a memorial to 09/11. There is a flag for every victim, and the local Air Force base donates combat boots to be placed by the flags of the people who died in the Pentagon.  Before the volunteers placed the boots by the flags, they had they around the base of this tree. I just had to take a photo of them!






Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
