It's my birth month. It's my anniversary month. There are so many things to celebrate and, even on the days there is no "official" celebration, the weather is so great and the flowers are so blue that it feels like a party anyway.
We went to a tiny street fair and farmer's market and then made other excuses to stroll around outside.
Neither the blender nor the ice cream maker got put away all weekend. They were both in constant use.
The weekend was, in short, a full-throttle celebration of May and life in general.
And now, as I type this, I can hear the birds outside and see the sun on the trees and I am calculating in my head just how many minutes I will have to spend inside today to get all the most necessary house chores done. Because I will weed and water and make up outdoor chores all day long, just to get as much May as I can before it's gone.
