The chocolate chips in my life: crafts, grandkids, friends, family, scrapbooking, reading, stamping, Red Hats, thrifting, and I even get on my soapbox on occasion.

Arlington National Cemetary - Washington DC Trip
The guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier change every 30 minutes and it's an honor to view it. The young men who guard the tomb are so precise in their movements, solemn, and proud. It was touching to watch the ceremonial changing of the guard.
There are white tombstones everywhere, it is a sobering view. The cemetery covers 624 acres.
The Lost Heroes quilt is inside. It's beautiful even before you know the significance. You'll see one face/name from each state.
