🌸 Hello May

“Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.”
– John Barrymore

When people start posting those “It’s gonna be May” NSYNC memes, you know what that means. Named after the Greek goddess Maia, the month of May brings warmer temps, blooming flowers, and the fresh beginnings of summer.

From May Day celebrations to Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day (everyone’s favorite long weekend), May is a month worth celebrating. Oh, and we can’t forget about Star Wars Day. That’s right—the cult classic sci-fi film has its own day so people have every excuse to greet each other with “May the Fourth be with you.” After all, who doesn’t love a good pun?
