Celebrating May

Several years ago I found the best website called Graceful Bee. I would spend hours on the site finding ideas for scrapbook pages and ways to celebrate with my family. Each month they offered a Memories to Capture printable newsletter full of wonderful information for each month with tons of ideas to celebrate. Sadly the website closed down several years ago. While organizing my scrapbook area I found my old binder full of newsletters from the Graceful Bee site. I was so happy to find it because I had forgotten how many fun and obscure holidays we have each month. I'm also excited that I can now share these days with you.

In the month of May we celebrate:
Mary - our Blessed Mother
National Strawberry Month
