May is primed to be an amazing month, if only the sun would get the memo and start shining.
I plan to hit up the Downtown Farmer’s Market and cross a few things off my “Before 30” lis, like SHOOTING THE HOT DOG GUN (!!!) at an Iowa Cubs game. I’m so excited. (Get your tickets: May 16.)
Other fun events on the calendar:
I hope the town is still blooming mid-month when my family comes to visit.
The Des Moines Social Club is hosting its grand opening on May 10.
The “I’d Rather Be Short” book signing is coming to B&N in West Des Moines on May 15. My creative muscles need some exercise.
Personally, I’m excited to head to St. Louis this month for a baby shower that will feel like a wedding reunion. Our dear friends had a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic a few years ago around this time, and now they’re having a baby girl!
I pulled together the invites and other friends are pitching in to help host, but the shower will be at the home of a Mizzou friend who is known for her fantastic shindigs. We may even attempt to take Emmett to the City Museum while we’re in town!
I’m sure I’m missing a million things. Happy May Day!
