Chasing Joy- Inspiration for Celebrating the Month of May

May is here…and it is a month that tends to bring with it a flurry of events and excitement…mother’s day, graduations of all ages, field trips and the end of the school year for many. I know lots of families that are just trying to survive the madness of May! Even with all that is going on I hope you can find a few spare moments to really enjoy all the things that you love about May. I love the beautiful spring days, the blooming of my peony bushes and switching from hot, cozy drinks to icy refreshing bevvies!

If you are looking for a few fun ways to celebrate May, I’ve got you covered. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to create a “To-Enjoy” list with a few activities, celebrations, foods and drinks that you want to partake in during May! I have found that penciling in a few little joy moments or family activities through out the month can do a lot to help my stress levels.

You can print the holidays, activity ideas for inspiration, as well as a fun “To-Enjoy” list printable. Hang your enjoy list on the fridge or a bulletin board so you remember to celebrate May! Don’t let it feel like pressure! My hope is that by creating the list you will take advantage of the little moments that you can do something that will bring a smile to your face and connect you to those you love!

I hope you find a few fun activities, holidays and foods/drinks that will really bring you and your family a little spark of joy this month!

This month I decide to make a printable dedicated to liturgical living, too! You can find popular feast days as well as activity ideas living liturgically in May!

Here are some other blog posts that might help you this month!
