Happy May Day

I love May.

May feels like an appetizer at a good restaurant; a small peek, a little taste, of what’s to come. Then we get our beautiful hot and dry summer, June through September, like the hearty main course. Fall is short but sweet: coffee and dessert. Winter? Winter is the bill, when you realize how much that great bottle of wine cost. You hate it but pay it, knowing no great meal comes free.


This is Juliet, my eight-year-old, at the May Day Concert and Dance.

Love, love, love Scott Jr.'s (Juliet's) dress! The only thing missing is her basket of flowers.

A perfect description of seasons!!

My own daughter has that dress. My husband calls it her Sex In The City Dress (not to her face of course!!) and sings the little ditty. It is a perfect NYC dress.

She is beautiful!

Thanks for starring our little Juliet, who, as Grandma Janie stated, is not little anymore! They grow up so fast. She's a wonderful young lady, and as lovely inside as out.

P.S. Loved your dinner-out analogy for the seasons.
