It is my favorite month.
May is warm, but not hot. May is green, not brown like summer. May is new and full of anticipation for school to be over and summer to start. But there are three things that make May even more special for me. May 4th is my anniversary, May 20th is my birthday and May is the month when we celebrate Mother's Day, a holiday I now qualify for. :)
I had a great anniversary with Jared in New York.
Mother's Day was wonderful because after being away from Brandon for a whole week I was very ready and excited to be a mom again. Brandon (with the help of his grandma and grandpa Bowman) bought me these beautiful flowers and made me a darling Mother's Day card.My birthday was made special by many kinds gifts, thoughts and words from friends and family.
Jared bought me the soundtracks to Phantom of the Opera, and Wicked. With the money from Grandparents, in-laws and Jared I bought lots and lots of flowers for our yard, they are beautiful, I love them!! My family came up for a BBQ courtesy of Jared and we enjoyed good food, and fun games. Maggie enjoyed having Meisha over to play, and Brandon enjoyed getting into her kennel, crazy kid!The music group that I am a part of brought me cake, flowers, and a fun post-it note gift, it was such a fun surprise. Brandon loved the cake too, he managed to sneak a slice while I was not watching (he is so quick!) I love that in this picture he is signing (ASL) the word help, does it look like he really needs help getting the cake?The day before we went as a group to the zoo. (This months theme is all about the zoo)
Such a wonderful month!!! Hooray for May!!
