I am so ready for May flowers. If you’re not with me on this one the door is that way. LOL I’m kidding but seriously… where is Mr Sunshine hiding? I’m so excited at even the tiniest bit of sunshine peeping through the clouds. I need more outdoor in my life aka hiking, biking, running the seawall, camping you know…. nature. If that even exist anymore…. ok so let’s hope for an early summer. May also promises a lot of food. Mostly booze. Because booze goes with everything. And after 3 glasses, it goes good with your sleep. So here you go.
