5 Things to be Happy About: May Edition

on May 1, 2017

Throw your hands up if you tweeted/shared/posted anything yesterday regarding today being May 1st! I don’t know about you, but I was singing, “It’s gon’ be May” ALL. DAY. LONG. without any shame. And I spent most of the day sending some pretty ridiculous snaps to my friends as well.

It’s safe to say that I’m looking forward to a new month. April was a whirlwind of adventures and lovely things between turning 23, traveling to Boston for a week and planning some exciting surprises here on the blog. I promise I’ll be sharing more on that soon!

In the meantime, I’m sharing what I’m looking forward to now that it’s May. Be sure to leave a comment sharing what you’re looking forward to this month!

1| One-Year Work Anniversary 

I don’t know how a year already flew by, but it has been one year since I began my first marketing job. Needless to say, I couldn’t be happier with where I’m at in my career after one year. I feel so blessed to wake up and go to a job that I love, and where I’m constantly growing and learning about the field I’m in. P.S. I’m thinking about writing a post on what I’ve learned so far in the marketing field for those who are interested. Let me know if this is something you would want to read.

2|  Cinco de Mayo

Because who doesn’t want a reason to grab some margaritas with your best friends and celebrate? Or, if you would rather have a girls night in, check out some of these awesome recipes to make while you’re watching Netflix.

3| Spring Flowers, ya’ll

I promised myself I would be treating myself to the things I enjoy. And if you know anything about me, you’ll know that I love some fresh cut flowers. Peonies and Tulips are two of my favorite flowers, but I’m not discriminating on any other beautiful blooms. So I’m encouraging you all to treat yourself in some way this month, even if it’s a bouquet of flowers. Because it’s all about the little things in life that can make a day better. #amiright?

4| Unexpected Visitors

I’m learning more and more that last-minute plans turn out to be the best type of plans. I’m thankful for my friends who are always encouraging me to be spontaneous. Two of my best friends from college are driving down to visit me this month, and I’m so excited. The last time all three of us were together was more than two years ago, so this is going to be a great time to catch up and spend time together.

5| Memorial Day Weekend

Cooking on the grill, playing backyard games and relaxing for a long weekend is something I’m definitely looking forward to. May is going to be a very busy and productive month, so it will be nice to enjoy the end of the month with family, friends and a little bit of fun as we move on into June!
