Thanks for making my day by SHARING!!

Aloha and Happy May Day my friends!

My brother and I, front and center, celebrating May Day at Lanikai Elementary School.

I spent 7 years of my childhood in Hawaii and I can’t let May 1st come around without remembering our ‘May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii’ celebration. The Hawaiian Tradition celebrates the significance of the ubiquitous Hawaiian Lei and it’s broad symbolism of welcome, farewell, love, hope, or joy…or just plain ‘Aloha’.

So there’s your fun fact for the day!

But wait, there’s more!

From the web:

Always looking to find easier way to clean things…some of these some of these I knew and some I hadn’t thought about before.

I am surprised at how …dare I say ‘addicted’ to social media I have become. I clearly need a social media diet.

Keystone habits are positive habits that are more important than others. Here are 8 keystone habits that can change your life.

We had a delicious dinner with some friends on Friday night and this dessert was served, a moist and decadent flourless (for all my gluten free friends) chocolate cake. I’m pretty sure I will be making this for my dad’s birthday next week.

You know what they say…’necessity is the mother of all inventions’.  This uber productive and creative laundry room was the end result of this mom’s quest for a more efficient space. Especially love the drying drawers for delicates.

And speaking of my dad’s birthday dinner…these Harissa Tacos sound and look delicious! I have a open jar of harissa in my fridge that I need to use up.

Wishing you a day filled with Aloha!

      Holy Cow Joy! You just made my day…no wait…you made my week! Maybe even my month! Thanks so much for those kind words and for taking the time to share them with me. I do enjoy working on my blog, but when someone takes the time to tell me that my efforts and words are appreciated, my enjoyment just skyrockets.

      I wish for you a lovely Monday and a lovely week.

      Many hugs,

    Happy May Day Lynn. I had no idea you lived in Hawaii. What fun that must have been. I can only imagine you must have been at the beach every day. What did you do today to celebrate?
