May is such a fun month...officially kicking off summer! The kids are done with school, I had a fantastic Mother's Day, an even better birthday and we even squeezed in a vacation to Hilton Head. May is always my favorite month (wink, wink) Can I get three chairs for bathing suits + popsicle weather?
