May Day

To celebrate the first of May... we had some sweet friends over for the first bbq of the year. The only thing missing, was our "master griller"... Charlotte and I created some May sticks... instead of dancing around a May Pole, we danced around with our streamers, and it just felt magical. I foresee MANY more dance parties involving these sticks... and they are super simple to create. You just need some streamers (go for the bright colors, you won't regret it) and collect some sticks.

Collecting the sticks was definitely the highlight for Charlotte... she kept calling each and every stick, a "magic wand"... love her imagination.

After we were done dancing around with them, we placed them in our glass vase, and they became our fun centerpiece.

It was a beautiful evening, filled with great fellowship... a wonderful way to bring in the month of May. Today marks 1 month until I turn the big 3-0 ! yes, I'm going to try and live up my last month in my twenties, who wouldn't?

How adorable is Charlotte's headband? It was gifted to her, by the sweet Illy... you need to go here and grab one... they're precious!
Pin It!
