Happy May,

“May the sun • bring you energy by day

May the moon • softly restore you by night

May the rain • wash away your worries

May the breeze • blow new strength into your being

May you walk • gently through the world and know it’s beauty all the days of your life.”

As I drove around the Twin Cities neighborhood today, I had to stop by this amazing tree filled with these pink flowers (cherry blossoms?) at a church in Minneapolis and have a few outfits shot here. May marks the end of those long winter below 40F weather. April showers bring May flowers. Indeed, flowers are in bloom. Having an option to roll down the car’s windows or blasting on the A/C to the max, soaking up the precious sunlight, seeing people getting up and out walking and taking out their babies and pets out on the street and parks make me so happy! I like to drive around jamming on my new music playlist on Soundcloud (give it a listen, here) and do lots of thinking. It’s when my ideas and thoughts are formed at least with my busy work schedule at the moment. I’d really prefer getting lost walking in a random wilderness, hiking, back to nature as ways to reflect and relax from these busy hectic days.

It’s Mother’s Day on the 8th this coming Sunday, so don’t forget to spend time with the mothers: your mom/s, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, friends, teachers etc who are moms of our little ones. In Vietnam, we don’t celebrate Mother’s Day, but slowly some Western holidays are adapted by the younger generations. I sometimes feel guilty of not calling my mom often enough due to the 12-hour difference. I am generally lazy with phone calls just because! The women I’m surrounded by are awesomely beautiful inside out, they’re not only amazing cooks but are at their best mom examples I’m aspired to be one day.

• May May surprise you with endless possibilities •

Have a great week!

stay inspired | as always
