Weekend Reads: Late spring
May was so super busy for me that I'm thrilled it's June. My birthday month! I'm loving the extra hours of sunshine, the fresh corn, the rain covered flowers. It's so nice to enjoy the season before it becomes uncomfortably warm. What are your favorite things about late spring?

Even if I'm tripping and falling, I still try to be a lady.
