just a friendly reminder...

...that tomorrow is May Day! I have the best memories of celebrating May Day with our next door neighbors, the Andersons. We would make our baskets (theirs out of cups and stickers and ribbon handles, and ours out of paper fortune teller things turned upside down) and filled with popcorn, skittles and rolos. Then we'd deliver them, ringing the doorbell, and running all over the neighborhood, being chased for the thank you hug.

I have talked to lots of people who have never celebrated May Day...which is a bummer, because its basically a fun day to give a thoughtful and easy gift to your neighbors.

Last year, I got a basket from my neighbor friend, Joan, and already have hers ready to go for tomorrow. She reads this blog, so I'll wait to share pictures until she gets her basket. The picture above is just a google stock image, but I loved these colorful baskets!

So, get your game on! Get out and see your neighbors again, pop some popcorn and buy some candy and celebrate spring, community, hugs and friendship.

Can I just say that no matter what this darn blog says, it always brings a smile to my face. I hear you in everything you say, and I think for those of us that know you and read this, it's one of the best parts! I miss you and can't wait to talk to you...hopefully that's soon dear friend! Love you!

"May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii" and I have so many pretty pix of my boys in their elementary school celebrations with Leis around their necks!
