May is coming!

I love May. And it's coming this week!

I'm turning 35 on Saturday. And then my girl turns 7 next week. Yes, that's among the reasons I love May. I also love the transition from spring the summer. We also get to celebrate mommas this month! And a new sense of freedom comes with the break in routine as the school year is ending.

So, May, I'm glad you're coming. These April showers are going to bring the flowers ...

With May, comes a just-the-four-of-us trip I'm really excited about. I'll tell you more about that later this week.

I'm also excited to share more of my motherhood story with you in May. I'm sharing at three different blogs I love. Jennifer Dukes Lee is hosting my words on Cate's birthday next week. Kayse Pratt is having me later in May.

And Jennifer Jackson Linck is hosting The Messy and Majestic of Motherhood series, starting today! Each Monday in May will feature a guest post. {I'm down for May 19!} At the end of the month, there's going to a be a fabulous Mother's Day prize pack.

Jennifer and I met online when we started chatting about adoption not long after her book was released. We've since talked about writing our stories, brainstormed specifics about the ebooks we're writing, and swapped editing services {or, well, we will when I get her a copy of my book ...}.

Jennifer is releasing an ebook called "Trucks, Tantrums & Trusting Him" just in time for Mother's Day. Yes, she's a boy mom, but her book is an authentic message of finding God in the ordinary moments any momma has experienced. "But in the middle of the mess, there’s hope. In the moments I feel myself unraveling, there’s a Savior who holds me together." Oh, aren't Jennifer's words true?!

See, May is going to be a good month. I'm so glad it's coming! Stay tuned for more ...

Are you looking forward to anything?
