May has flown by and I am planning a few work trips, a family trip, and a destination wedding. It all seems to be going by very quickly! We have a rainy weekend in Chicago so I am hoping to catch up on some work before Monday rolls around. Our farmers market has opened up and Henri and I are enjoying our visits and picking up fresh flowers, eggs, and pastries. We are patiently waiting for summer fruits and vegetables. We did a little work on the garden and we are excited for flowers and herbs to grow.
