This past Sunday, our church held a Veteran's Day service and banquet. Lucky me, I got to have the world's handsomest soldier as my date ;). It really was a beautiful service with patriotic music, a veteran's choir with most of the veterans in their dress uniforms, a great sermon about remembering all of the sacrifices made on our behalf, and a yummy meal. I made this dress to match with the colors of N's Class A uniform. To me, it looks like an elegant and subdued camo pattern (maybe that's just the redneck in me coming out). I was going to switch out my black purse for one that actually matched my outfit, but I was going to make N late for choir practice, so I went with the black purse. Just keeping it real, folks ;)! All in all, it was a great day with great company, and a great chance to celebrate freedom!
