Now is the Month of Maying

It's May, hurrah, hurrah! Spring is my favorite season - and May is my favorite month of the whole year. When I was much younger, the first of May would always be celebrated by making crowns of flowers and dancing and singing around a May Pole - I have such lovely memories of lilacs in my hair, feeling as beautiful as any child-imagined princess. In lieu of making a crown today, I'll be sitting outside in the golden sunshine and drinking up a new book.

Let's celebrate this beautiful month with the word openness. Breathe in deeply, clear your mind, spread your arms wide, and let go. Be open to new possibility and to new experiences. Say yes; go forward towards adventure and newness without fear. What does openness mean to you?

This very first week marks a big milestone for this blog - and I'll have at least five giveaways to share with you! The first will start on Monday. EDIT: I've change my mind - the celebrations will start tomorrow (Sunday)! It's going to be an exciting week; stay tuned!

Happy May, my dear! I think "openness" is the perfect word for the month. I sometimes hide my feelings and it always helps when I share them. I can't wait for what beautiful things come my way because I'm open to them.

thanks for the comments! nolwenn, let's build a maypole and dance around it and sing, flowers bouncing in our hair! all of you lovely ladies are invited, of course, and we can nibble cookies and fruit and sip on sweet lemonade..

brandi, i often need reminding that i just need to trust the universe and let it work its magic. i must do what i can, and let go of the rest. happy may (slightly belated)!
