HAPPY MAY! This month is jam-packed with celebrations from Cinco De Mayo to Mother’s Day. I can’t be the only one who was excited about Star Wars Day. Anywho, let’s talk about the end of the month banger…Memorial Day! Three days of pure enjoyment; no work and the only obligation is to grab a plate at the cookout. If you don’t have any plans, definitely head to Aruba for the Soul Beach Musical Festival. Haven’t heard of it?!?!
