Me Made May 2022

Me Made May has come and gone, and while I’ve posted to Instagram most days this month it’s time for a little recap on the blog. This year wasn’t quite as successful for me as past years have been. I really didn’t enjoy taking pics- of course a large part of that is it’s time to update my phone- which doesn’t take the best pics. Plus half way …

MMM Days 1-11

I’m really enjoying another year of Me Made May! It’s my 7th year participating! I’m especially enjoying it this year because it’s pushing me to get “dressed” each day while Staying Home. We’re still closed here in Broward County so I’m not leaving the house much at all other than to walk the dog or go to the grocery store. Counting down the days until summer and an …

The year has almost slipped by, I’m getting this post in right before we ring in the New Year! Spending the last few minutes before we head over to my mom’s to celebrate! I always have big plans for year end posts but then end up so busy around the holidays that it always feels rushed. One of the reasons my goal for 2020 is to slow down. …
