It’s the last day of the month! It’s time for another monthly wrap up and the Best of the Blogs Linkup!
I hope your Memorial Day weekend was everything you dreamed it to be! Mine ended up being pretty chill, which is exactly what I needed after a busy few weeks.
To ease the pain of a Tuesday that really feels like a Monday, It's the Best of the Blogs linkup day! Woop. I hope you will linkup your favorite post of the month or a wrap up like this one. If you are not a blogger, this will be a great resource for you to learn about new sites and view some incredible posts.
Overall May has flown by. The month has been packed with all sorts of fun like a Gala, Flying to Chattanooga and the BAHAMAS! I know I haven't talked about that yet, but I just got back from my second trip to Hope Town. I'll be sharing more on the trip tomorrow. This summer is jammed packed with all sorts of fun things.
Blog numbers wise, May has been a lot better than April. I also saw a lot of growth from this May compared to last May. I know the summer months are slower, so I'm interested to see what happens. As always, it's not about the numbers game, but it is nice to have people read and use what you put out there. If I don't say it enough, thank you all for making this blog part of your day.
