So May turned out to be a pretty bad month – wait, let me rephrase that…. May sucked. I don’t want to go into too much detail, but Neal had an accident on his mountain bike and broke his collarbone, 2 pets in our family passed away, and Daisy (our little rescue dog) has been having to serious health issues.
On the upside, though, my sister-in-law gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Welcome to the world, baby Amelia!
I don’t have anything planned for the month of June, and I want to keep it that way because May was a very busy month for me. Here are some dates that I want to highlight to you guys for the month of June:
