Welcoming May

backyardrules

Happy May 1st loves! Can you believe a third of the year has come and gone already? Since the weather has warmed, our little family is spending so much more time in the backyard. We’re saving up for some big landscaping projects, but in the mean time our deck is getting a lot of use with sipping coffee on Saturday mornings, picnicking for Sunday lunches and relaxing with a margarita (or two!) in the cool evenings.

One fun thing I want to add are a few backyard rules – and not the kind your grandmother used to tell you! I love how fun, playful and freeing these “rules” really are. Most of the phrases below are certainly activities we’ve have done and plan to do this coming summer season.

A new month can also mean new goals, plans and fresh beginnings. Start the month of May with a new perspective and remember to take a little R&R for yourself!
