    My favorite thing about May is that it begins BBQ season. For the most part the rain season is over and we can start to bbq & picnic with the family. I love spending time with the kids with great food.

    My favorite thing about the month of May is celebrating all of the birthdays our family has. Within 2 weeks we have four birthdays in our family. I love getting together and having a big party with my extended family. We have so many fun times together and celebrating birthdays with each other never fails to be fun.

    While maybe not my favorite thing this month, I’m proud to help increase knowledge about two very important medical issues, both of which have affected my life and the lives of family and friends: May is both Lyme Disease Awareness Month and Celiac Disease Awareness Month. What many Celiacs may not realize is that most Lyme disease patients also have to be gluten-free. I had already gone gluten-free prior to the tick bite that gave me Lyme and multiple tick-borne diseases.

    May, to me, is the season of new beginnings. The bulbs snoozing under the snow wake up, and transform the landscape with a riot of color, stirring my heart to follow suit. The tradition of Spring Cleaning manifests almost without effort, as I wake up energized, ready to fling the windows open and let the clean fresh breeze inside, and the dust motes dance with me as I cleanse and renew inside and out.

    May is the season of frilly dresses and skinned knees, of earthworms and robins returned. It’s planting the garden of my earth and the garden of my spirit. It’s promise and poetry, with a side of muddy boots.

    May Day! Yay!

    My favorite thing about May is that we have so much to celebrate. We have both my girls birthdays, my Mom’s birthday, my nephews birthday, my daughter’s First Communion, both my older kids going to prom, and just the end of the school year festivities. There are concerts and soccer games and water polo games. May represents family and good times.

    My favorite thing about May is the long, long days that just get longer as the month goes on. Up at 5 with light in the sky and going out again after dinner with the sweet chill of a late spring evening.

  6. Living outdoors, as much as possible anyway. Open windows and an end to the hiss of the radiators! Reading books in the sun, and being outside enough to sit and enjoy things, not just to run around to burn off energy.
