Happy May! My favorite month, with green grass, flowering trees, lilacs blooming, (in a couple weeks!) family birthdays, carpets of violets on the lawn, bare feet, and the garden finally coming to life. That's right, while you southern and California girls have been picking your flowers and enjoying Spring for a month or more, Spring is just now arriving at our doorstep in Michigan.
Thank you Jesus.
I enter this beautiful season with a renewed determination to get off my hiney, walk more, (eat less, ahem) get the garden in order, work on projects in the yard and a million other things that call my name after what seems like a winter spent hibernating. This past weekend was spent wandering a huge vintage and antique show at the local fairgrounds, the season's first Farmers Market visit and time with friends. I'm planning picnics, barbeques and visits with the kids. The calendar is filling up fast! I'll be back later this week with another installment of my series on entertaining.
Have you started filling up your spring and summer calendar? What fun do you have planned?
