the month of may brings many holidays and reasons to celebrate. there’s cinco de mayo, mothers day, and memorial day. the weather is warm, farmers are planting their gardens, the beauty of life is here! may brings the smell of fresh cut grass, cookouts and smiling faces. it is the month of festivals ~ the festival of flowers, the french broad river festival, LEAF (lake eden arts festival), and the mountain sports festival. may is also one of the most popular months to wed! perhaps it has to do with the nice weather, that everything is green again, or maybe people have been cooped up all winter and are ready to celebrate. for some may might be the perfect wedding month since it’s not football season! it could do with the saying april showers, may flowers. i married in may (8 years today, happy anniversary baby!) whatever the reason, may weddings are fun and inspiring. there’s so many great flowers, colors, fresh local foods and perfect mountain air ~ warm during the day, breezy at night!
