All American Moments!

Yesterday after reading a post on Sweets by Sarah I found out about Operation Baking Gals.

Now, I'm not exactly a baker extraordinaire, but I am always interested in finding new ways to show my support to the troops. So I was inspired to do some digging, and came across Soldier's Angels and decided to step up and start by sending cards to those wounded during service.

I am participating in their Wounded TLC program, and hope to do a bit more as the summer rolls along. I just know that if I'm going to be traveling at all to visit family I don't want to commit to mailing packages just yet, but I hope to take that on in the fall!

Anyway, I'm very excited about this opportunity, and wanted to share these sites with you all, should you be inspired, as well.

Oh, and oddly enough ... today I check my Google Reader and find that 4 Nuts in a Nutshell has created some patriotic blinkies, so I chose one for today's post! Thanks, Cat!






And THANKS to all the men and women across the world serving our great country. May each day find you as safe and protected as you allow us to feel.
