May Wishlist

May is among us. Wishes are for warm weather, water that won't make popcicles out of the kids as they gear up for swim team season, and good health. Without good health nothing is possible!

I Love Virginia Hand Towels: Aren't these cute!! Perfect for my home!! The heart lies in Richmond I see...
 
With Mother's Day coming up, I would love an Initials Necklace.

These are from Target and they are so cute. We have the navy and white ones in our master bedroom but these would be perfect in our sunroom.


When you don't have privacy in your yard during the summer, you want it. I love how this is a simple use of 4x4 planks.
 
 
Swim bottoms that come up high. Hey, my kids did a number on me.
 
 
Honey Almond Oatmeal Soap: OH MY!! This smells amazing. 
 
 
What are you looking for this May?
