The world's favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.

I've never done a monthly wrap-up post before, but because May was particularly awesome this time around, I've decided to give it a try. What blessings hath May brought?
I RAN ten miles (without stopping!) at the Broad Street run in Philadelphia - My longest running distance ever (so far!):
The kids completed their first season of Soccer; making me a… (wait for it…) Soccer Mom. Should I get that soccer ball sticker for my minivan yet?
Speaking of Mom, on Mother's Day weekend, I was treated to a box of brownies, breakfast, flowers, gifts, a drive-thru zoo where the giraffes come right. Up. To. Your. Car. (I love New Jersey), an amusement park, and dinner at my favorite vegetarian restaurant in Philly. Not bad if I do say so myself:
Many of my flowers started blooming. May is one of the most amazing months in the garden.
I traveled to a television studio in New York City and met two blogger friends and an attachment parenting guru:
Next up, my baby turned FIVE. Five I tell you. Unbelievable. My heart:
Later that week, we took the kids for their very first backpacking trip - 11 miles, three days, and two nights out in the backcountry of Virginia! It was amazing and awesome (and wet and exhausting) but so wonderfully bonding as a family. It was incredibly refreshing to get so close to the earth, and back to basics (No social media! No laptop! No cellphone service!):
And we concluded with a trip to Washington DC to visit the museums and Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day:
It's been a spectacular month. I can't wait to see what's up next - bring it on, June!!!
