Holidays, Things you should be doing in May…

How often do we say, “life’s too short,” or “time is flying,” or “I can’t believe it’s summer/fall/winter/spring already!”

Next Sunday is May 1, and with a little advance planning maybe we can slow things down and enjoy the moments…

Here’s what we need to be doing in May
