Monthy Wrap Up – May

May 31, 2018 Monthly Wrap-Up 12


I can’t believe I’m writing a wrap up post for May already! This year is flying by so fast. The warmer weather is making my household much busier which means less time for reading, it seems. I got a little behind on my reading list this month and I think it was a combo of less reading time as well as reads that were longer and slower to get through. But, overall I really enjoyed everything I read, which is always a bonus. Hopefully June will let me catch up a bit and continues to bring great reads.


One of my favorite parts of May is seeing the flowers on my Magnolia tree bloom. The tree was a gift for my college graduation years ago and was only 6ft tall at the time. And when we moved a couple years later, we decided to transplant it, hoping it would take to its new home. And well, it has done amazing! It’s growing so fast and I’m really not a plant person but this here is my baby.


My Jacob also had his First Communion.Though church can be a struggle for him to sit through, he was proud of himself and us of him.


May was also a month of movies. I went to see Avengers: Infinity War, twice. And wow, I loved seeing all of the Marvel characters come together in one movie. And of course that ending… And then I saw Deadpool 2, twice. I can’t get enough of those movies. They are hilarious, action-filled and of course they have Ryan Reynolds. I didn’t get around to Solo: A Star Wars Story just yet but I know I’ll be heading to the theater to see that in the coming weeks. Most likely twice. lol
