The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

May the fourth be with you

I know I know, I'm a geek.  It's really not my fault.  My husband is a huge Star Wars fan, we have a Star Wars themed room.  I come by it honestly.

Four years ago today (and tomorrow), my life changed.  I was present for my niece Julia's birth.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to have children the old fashioned way, so child birth was to be an experience I would never have.  Andrea and her husband shared this incredibly intimate time with me and I will forever be grateful. 

When Andrea went into labour late that Thursday night, the geek in me hoped the baby would have been born on May the forth, but alas she did not make her way into the world until early morning on the fifth.

This is one reason I love May, I have many, many more.  I was born in May for one!  Not that I'm thrilled to be turning another year older, but I really do enjoy birthday cake.

What do you love about May?

I guess it's days like today that I love about May. Happy Birthday. My son would go nuts if he saw your starwars room.

Yes, May is great. It brings flowers, sunshine, bugs, and plum tree blossoms - well before our biggest plum tree died - but that's not fun...

I guess I love May because its sort of the month when I wake up from the winter and come alive. So far this month I've looked around and decided that it's due time to resurface and that is what I'm trying to do.

Like many people, February is my least fav month, but that's a whole other blog post.... And I've already said enough.
