Marvelous May

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, sweets!  And happy first day of May!  I can't believe it's actually May 1st.  It seems like the spring is just flying by.

Two things I'm really looking forward to this month.  First is, in less than two weeks I'll be opening my beach house for the summer season!  I just can't wait to finally be back by the shore.  I'm never happier than when I'm there. 

Secondly, I cannot wait to get my hands on some gorgeous peonies.  My favorite flower should start appearing at the flower market any day now and I'll be sure to be buying copious amounts in all shades of the rainbow for both my home and office. 

What are you all looking forward to this month?

xoxo

The minute I started to scroll through these beautiful images I knew that you were inspired by spring! AND that you were looking forward to the beach house! :) Lovely, my sweets. I picked up 3 peonies for my bedside table yesterday... nothing smells better than that floral aroma! My favorite flower. Loves to you, dear!

As in every first of the month, I look at it as another chance or shot at what I was not able to complete the previous month :)

Yay for may indeed!! My birthday month!! I can't wait to get my hands on some peonies as well!! xoxo

Heather Pranitis said...

I agree, it simply cannot be May already. Where did the year go? I am actually excited it's May...that means the year is "almost" half over! I've got big things planned for next year - well, goals I will have reached. By the way, I do hope you are going share pictures of those peonies. And I'm so jealous you will be opening your beach house soon, enjoy!

Ali Rodriguez said...

Ah your photos are gorgeous! So jealous that you have a beach house to run off to. I know what you mean about peonies, a bunch of orange ones just bloomed in my front yard (a surprise since this is our first spring in our rental) and they make me so happy!

honey my heart said...

oh my gosh, peonies are the best!! and hooray for opening the beach house. i'm looking forward to more beach days and a three day weekend. happy may :)

Anna said...

No wonder you love Spring with such beautiful inspiration! Love those colours in the pictures (Especially that first one). Peonies are actually mine and my mums favourite flowers too! :) And the beach house just sounds tooooo divine.

I was just thinking about peonies too! I have some in my yard and I'm anxiously waiting for them to bloom. Sadly, they don't last long, but they are so beautiful so I soak up every moment with them. I'm on peony watch right now : )
So jealous you have a beach house. It's on my bucket list for the future. It must be nice to be able to "get away" anytime you want. Just thinking about it makes me smile...dream, dream, dream...
