Happy end of the week and happy end of May!

may update pin

This month has really gone by in a blink for me and I can’t believe it is already time for another update.  On top of that, we are approaching my one year anniversary of leaving WLOS.  Can you believe its been ten months today?  Crazy huh!?

May has been delightfully full.  We got back from Brazil and I immediately dove into the final planning for the March for Babies.  The next weekend we went to visit my in-laws in Pittsburgh for Memorial Day and *blink* the month is over.  It seems like summer has a way of doing that to me!

Overall this month has been filled with a lot of joy.  March for Babies went so well and it felt amazing to be involved with such a cool group of people and raise money to  help babies.

It’s also been a lot of fun to come back to the US and share more about our trip to Brazil.

Did you miss my vacation video the hubs put together with his Go-Pro??

On the downside I spent the first half of the month recovering from a bad cut on my foot and I was not able to run/workout the way I would like.

However the time I gained from not being able to run allowed me to put together one killer garden for the season.

To sum it up, I simply adore this time of year.  The sunshine, warm weather and green mountains make me happy.  In my opinion, it’s much easier to handle curve balls like injuries when it’s pretty outside.

So without further ado, I’m summing up the month with my Top 5 Posts on Running in a Skirt!

So that’s my wrap up of the month!  It’s been another solid month and I’m hoping I can keep the momentum going through the summer. Thank you again for reading and coming back again and again.  I am able to do this because of you guys and I can’t thank you enough.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend, dear reader.

I’ll be back Monday with the second part of my Brazil travel series.  I’m featuring a small, nearly undeveloped island of the coast of the Rio state called Ilha Grande.  It was such a naturally stunning place.  Come back to see the pretty pictures and find out what went terribly wrong on this part of the trip– Not my foot!

Your turn!
