Wow May, you have been jam-packed and while May is always a long month the ending really came quickly. Since it is the last Wednesday of May, I am linking up with Shay and Shaeffer for their monthly link-up What's Up Wednesday. Settle in for all things May in my post today.

Friday-We have wine pickup for our wine club so we will just grab something really quickly.


Monthly Musings May 2023: Celebrating Memorial Day Weekend


Hey there Besties! Memorial Day weekend starts tomorrow. While we never want to underestimate the real meaning of this weekend, it is also the unofficial start of summer. Holly and I chose Memorial Day weekend as the theme for Monthly Musings and I cannot wait to see what all of the talented writers who join us every month share for their Memorial Day celebrations and traditions. This month try to stop by and visit a new site that links up with us that you have not visited before. Holly and I read all of the writers who link up with us and they are amazing and always have fun ideas.

Kick off the summer with us and take a moment to remember those that gave all to this country so that we can enjoy the freedoms we hold so dear.

1. How are you spending Memorial Day weekend?

Friday night I am kicking off the weekend by helping out with the All-Night Graduation Party for school. Since prom night and graduation nights can be the most dangerous seasons for teen drivers, our school hosts an all-night graduation party each year.

Monthly Musings Topics May 2023


Happy Monday Besties! Memorial Day weekend is this weekend and Monthly Musings is this Thursday. I am linking up with Holly and Sarah for Hello Monday and sharing the topics for Monthly Musings. 

Get ready for all things Memorial Day for my monthly linkup with Holly this Thursday! See you then.

What could be Better than that?

1. Judy Blume Forever

I actually had a few hours to myself last weekend and while I folded the laundry I caught the Judy Blume Forever documentary on Amazon Prime.  I am definitely of the age where I read some of her books but have not read them all. I am also of an age where Judy Blume was considered very controversial and talked about on the nightly news and the talk shows that were so popular in the 1980's.
