My husband and I have a Memorial Day tradition that started 5 years ago when we first started dating.  Every year, we would meet our friends at his family’s lake house in Crockett, Texas.  It was the perfect meeting point between Dallas and Houston for our group of friends.   The weekend was always a wonderful time with friends and family.  Last year, the Memorial Day celebration doubled as our going away party as it fell on the weekend before our move to New York.

This year, being our first Memorial Day living in the City, we planned a weekend in the Hamptons with a few of the same friends that celebrated with us in Crockett.  We had so much fun exploring a new area while still continuing our Memorial Day tradition together.  Here are a few fun pictures my husband snapped on our walk along the beach in Amagansett.  As you ca see by the look on my face, the water is still cold!

I have more pictures to share of the cute little town and great food that I will be sure to post later this week.  Happy Memorial Day to you all!  I hope everyone was able to spend some quality time with friends and/or family.  But, most importantly, I hope everyone took a moment to remember the brave men and women of the United States military who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
