Ahh, another month has come and gone. Can you believe half the year is already over?? Can you also believe that every single month, I talk about how fast the year is passing? You would think it wouldn't be a surprise anymore, but alas, it is.
May was a wonderful month. I celebrated my birthday in Amsterdam and I spent Memorial Day weekend on the Amalfi Coast. Nothing against Amsterdam (I did love it), but the Amalfi Coast was my favorite. Ravello is my favorite area in all of Italy (Tuscany does come in at a close second). We did some kayaking and some relaxing. I think I love Ravello (and the rest of the Amalfi Coast) because it is so relaxing.
We are already planning to go there again in September. Yep, we can't stay away.
The weather has also been super mild. This time last year, it was crazy hot already. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the milder weather. But it's still not hot enough to use our pool and I kind of hate that.
I am super excited about June because I am going back to the States for almost three weeks! I am looking forward to spending some time with my best friend and my family. I will spend a weekend in Florida and the rest of the time will be split between Georgia and Alabama (where my in-laws live).
During the month of May, I read a total of 28 books. That is crazy, right? I almost feel like that is too many. Weird. Maybe I feel that way because towards the end of the month, I really didn't read anything that blew me away. The best books I read were towards the beginning of the month. And because I have read more than twenty books since my favorites, it just feels like so long ago. Does that even make any sense? Probably not, but it is what it is.
