April has come and gone in a whirl of activity. My work has consumed me this month. When I haven’t been behind the computer at my desk, I’ve been editing my book on the home laptop. The good days had a bit of domesticity here and there. It’s been a stressful month and I’m ready to be more balanced.

I’m happily looking forward to May. I’ll be hearing this woman speak at a nutrition conference, traveling to San Francisco and checking in with one of my favorite friends and making my annual voyage to Nicaragua — preferably pronounced with a Barney** accent.

May will bring heat to Phoenix and fewer flowers to my garden. My skin will turn a darker olive, my hair will get lighter from long runs in the morning sun. It will bring ample time to celebrate, including birthdays, graduations and weddings. It is the unofficial start to summer.
And of course, one of my favorite days of the year: Cinco de mayo! Bienvenidos mayo. Vamos a tomar una margarita en celebracion a su venida!

** Have you read Barney’s blog? A girlfriend mentioned it to me the other day. My God it is hilarious.
