As we kick of the start of summer by celebrating those who protect and have protected our country’s freedom, I hope you are having a Happy Memorial Day full of fun, family, friends and FOOD!

Remember to give gratitude for the servicemen and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and to the current military families for their service.

Our summer if filling up fast with graduation parties, college summer welcome and our annual girls summer vacation.

So I sent out a plea to some of my favorite creative bloggers, asking if they would like to share some of their favorite summer activities, crafts, decor and recipes. They all said YES!!!

So from now thru July 9th,  every Tuesday and Wednesday, I’ll be having a wide range of guest posts here from my blogging idols and friends (their creativity amazes me!). The series will kick off tomorrow with a super cute summer craft for entertaining.

Get ready to  Spark Your Summer and ignite your creativity!
