Red, White & Blue Popsicle Mason Jar – Painted Popsicle on Mason Jar.
For me, Memorial Day always signaled the unofficial start of summer.
Sure, June 21 was still a few weeks off. But the end of May … and the start of June … was the turning point.
The turning point when the weather warmed.

The turning point when the days grew long and daylight lasted until 8 or 9 pm.
And when I was in my 20’s, Memorial Day was the turning point when I would spend my weekends at the Jersey shore.
No, not the same shore in the MTV show. A much nicer shore in Sea Girt, NJ.

not cute red, white & blue Popsicle painted mason jars! 🙂
