From a schedule point of view, May was one of our busiest months of the year, but it was such a good one! Of course, we road-tripped to Savannah and Florida, but I also booked a big new copywriting client that I’m so excited about, did more freelance work than I usually do (hence a little bit of blog neglect–sorry!), spent a bunch of wonderful quality time with friends, and started setting the pace for summer. My childhood summers hold some of my sweetest memories, and I hope and pray that we can create the same thing for Charlie. He’s still so young and not in school, so summer isn’t too big of a difference from the rest of the year yet, but I don’t see why we shouldn’t get started with Operation Magical Childhood Summers now!
(Note: this year, I’m setting a monthly goal per yearly goal!)
1. Plan ahead for May Feast Days we want to celebrate (not as well as I had hoped, but plan to do this for June!)
Tweak Rule of Life to implement some more regular chores and updated routines for spring, and finally blog about our Rule of Life (find it here!)

plant flowers by the mailbox

Send a care package to my sister when her fiancé leaves for his deployment

Exceed expectations for the freelance projects I have due this month

1. Write thank you letters to our beloved priests (who are both transferring this month–cue the ugly cry!) and go to confession with one of them
2. Make much-belated dentist appointments for all three of us and map out appointments for the rest of the year.
