And just like that, it’s May. Like magic, buds have turned to blossoms, puddles to patches of green and fog to fabulously blue skies, feeling like we’ve skipped a month here or there. Where has the time gone, don’t ask me, but I’m more than happy that my winter coat is firmly in the back of my closet and the trusty leather jacket is in full force.
