It’s that time again already! Time to round up some of my favorites from May just in case you missed them!

May has been a busy month for me. I am sure many of you are excited that your kids or grandkids are out of school for summer break.

When you have some time to relax, grab your favorite drink and enjoy these posts from May.

May Round-Up

I was really excited to start my Happiness Is series back up! Please check out this section of the blog.

Both old and new articles are here although I am still working on adding some of my older posts back in. They need a lot of cleanup work because I wrote them when I was new to blogging.

One of my more recent Happiness Is articles is about my Tiny Garden and has made it to the Round-Up for May.

It's the little things that matter May Round-Up

May was a great month for fashion but I selected my favorite for the May Round-up. Feminine and Flirty in a Fit and Flare Dress.

Even if you are not into wearing dresses, every woman needs at least one great dress in her wardrobe.

Fit and flare work with almost every figure and I just love that this floral dress has pockets!

Cross sectoring between the beauty category and enlightenment category was an interesting article on hair color.

Where you Born with the Right Hair Color received a lot of notice on social media.

I for one was not born with the right hair color for my personality although I do feel when I was younger my natural blonde suited me well.

I would love to hear your feelings and thoughts on the color you were born with!

While Protecting Your Pets From Predators was only recently posted I do want to be sure all pet owners read it.

It is so very important that we are responsible pet owners and know how to keep our little ones safe outside.

Be sure to read the comments too as many readers have added some great tips that I did not list in the article.

Featured in the may round-up Coyotes, hawks, fox, even owls can be harmful to your small pets. In this article, you will learn some easy ways to protect your small pets from predators.

I enjoy it when my favorite bloggers post rounds ups because I miss a lot of them during the month.

I am often too busy working or taking care of business around the house. It is nice to have a list of articles to read during my “me time”. I hope you enjoy my round-ups.

If you enjoyed this round-up please share.

    My favorite post of the month was the one about your grandfather. I love to read about family and their impact on our lives.

      So happy that the round-up reminded you! Pretty sure they still have plenty in stock too.

    I found the haircolor post interesting! The main reason is because I struggle with finding the right color. I feel more confident as a blonde and my hair was blonde growing up, but it’s been getting darker over the years. For some time I started to dye it really dark, but now I’m back to blonde! lol

      I am so glad you liked that post and that it resonated with you! I am even happier that you colored full blonde to feel like yourself again!

    You had quite the busy month! I personally enjoyed the Right Hair Color post, since I love being a brunette, and despite being a licensed cosmetologist for over a decade, have never completely dyed my hair.

    • May 30, 2017 / 5:36 pm

      Oh wow do you think you ever will go for it? Thanks so much I love hearing what others enjoy reading.

    • May 30, 2017 / 6:44 pm

      That is awesome Natalie. I follow you on Instagram and think you have such a pretty shade of hair. Sort of a honey color!

  4. May 30, 2017 / 6:01 pm

    I am a huge animal lover and I liked your post on the pets and how to protect them from predators. That is so very important because some of these animals I didn’t even realize were predators.

    • May 30, 2017 / 6:44 pm

      Thank you so much! I love writing posts that can help other people so much. I am glad you too are a fellow animal lover – we have to protect our precious pets.

  5. May 30, 2017 / 6:23 pm

    Love the round up what a great idea! I really like the post about protecting your small pets from predators. I live in an area with a lot of coyotes and bigger and we also go camping and run into these animals frequently. So many wonderful tips! Thanks for sharing.

    • May 30, 2017 / 6:43 pm

      Thank you so much. Yes I was proud of that post because it really is a PSA in a sense. I enjoy the posts that can truly help others. I also truly appreciate knowing what you enjoyed!

  6. May 30, 2017 / 8:40 pm

    I need to track down the articles that question if you were born with the right hair color. I feel like I would have a much more fun life as a blonde!

      Amanda I say GO FOR IT! If for any reason you do not care for being blonde after you dye your hair you can always go back! Life is too short not to dye your hair.

  7. May 30, 2017 / 10:35 pm

    I love fit and flare dresses so much! I just ordered a couple more from one of my favorite spots because I know that I’ll always look good in them!

    • May 31, 2017 / 2:50 pm

      Indeed Natasha! I agree almost every figure looks great in a fit and flare dress. Thank you so much for checking out my article!

  8. May 30, 2017 / 10:39 pm

    That dress is pretty. I live dresses with pockets too and floral is so in for spring and summer!

    • May 31, 2017 / 1:53 pm

      Oh indeed Jenny! I don’t know WHY I love the pockets so much but I just do haha.

    I really like the Happiness is series because it make you think about the happy things in your life. You actually forget about the bad things that may be going on in your life at the time. Thanks for sharing this roundup.

    • May 31, 2017 / 1:52 pm

      Thank you so much Rebecca. The Happiness Is articles are supposed to do exactly that. I am so thankful you enjoy them.

    I love this time of year, with weather warming up and wrapping up the school year. That’s great you have a garden to work on. I have a raised garden bed and it is a bit neglected, I need to get working on it!

      Oh raised garden beds are wonderful! I had those at my old home. I should consider doing that again next year. Thank you for the inspiration!

    • May 31, 2017 / 1:50 pm

      Yay! I am so happy that you have been inspired to start a container garden! One does not need tons of land to enjoy growing and nature. See it’s funny, because I am good with veggies but terrible with flowers haha. Maybe we can grow for each other and share.

  11. May 31, 2017 / 9:20 am

    We had a neighbor’s small dog get carried away by a hawk a few years ago. Protecting small animals from predators is a nice topic to educate people on.

    • May 31, 2017 / 1:49 pm

      That is so very sad Tim. I am glad you said this happened though so others do realize it DOES happen. Thank you!

  12. May 31, 2017 / 10:29 am

    You have some really great posts. The one about your grandfather is just a treasure and the gardening post is a perfect one since we are diving head first into gardening at the moment!

    I think the hair color post is interesting. I have been debating on coloring my hair but have been afraid too.

    • May 31, 2017 / 1:44 pm

      Don’t be afraid Jacqui. If anything does go wrong you can always change it. I hope you find the color that is perfect for you.

    I love your post. That one dress is very beautiful. I think summer dresses are fun this time of year.

  15. May 31, 2017 / 12:47 pm

    Your grandfather story was my favorite this month. That fit and flirty dress looked amazing on you. I want one and am off to find out where to get it.

    • May 31, 2017 / 1:42 pm

      Thank you Dina! I had a really great friend in school named Dina and have not heard the name in years. LOVE your name! I am so glad you enjoyed my post about my Grandfather and the dress post. It is a fun dress for sure! It’s on Amazon and very affordable. Also comes in two other colors. Link in the post of course which I am sure you know.

  16. May 31, 2017 / 12:53 pm

    I missed your post about predators attacking animals. This post kinda hits home because my parents lived near an open field (it has been developed a bit more now). However, animals would strangely disappear and it was suggested that something in the field was snagging them up if they got too close to the field. We keep our lil dog inside.

  17. May 31, 2017 / 1:14 pm

    These are great posts! I really loved the fit and flare floral dress. I would wear this as much as possible.

    That dress is very pretty! It sounds like you had a super busy but very fun month! I hope June is even better! 🙂

    • May 31, 2017 / 1:55 pm

      Thank you Adriana that is so sweet of you. The best we can hope for is that the next month is better than the last.

  19. May 31, 2017 / 1:57 pm

    I love recaps and I do it on our blog too. I loved your fashion post as well as your happiness is series post. Looking forward to reading your posts in June and beyond.

      Thank you Lynndee! I have seen yours and love your style of doing them. I have thought of doing mine more like yours!

  20. May 31, 2017 / 10:06 pm

    The story about your grandfather was definitely my favorite. It was a really nice thing to read and more personal

    • June 1, 2017 / 5:05 pm

      Awee thank you Lisa that was a special post and he was a special man. Thank you SO much.

  21. June 1, 2017 / 12:27 am

    I can’t believe we’re already done with May! Time flew so fast! Thanks for the round up! I enjoyed reading that post about protecting smaller pets, my Riley is a small breed and I’m all about protecting him when we’re out adventuring.

    When I get some free time in my busy schedule then I really like to make cold coffee with ice even that’s my relaxation activity!!

    • June 1, 2017 / 5:02 pm

      Indeed! I would love one right now but just do not have the time. It does take a little more time to prepare and when I rush I end up with a watery tasting coffee drink lol

  24. June 1, 2017 / 11:45 am

    I love these type of round-ups, because it is a good way for readers to catch up just in case they missed any posts! One of my favorite posts was the floral dress. 🙂

  25. June 1, 2017 / 3:20 pm

    This roundup is great!! I especially loved the one about pets and predators. My in-laws let their cats outside often, and they live in the country (hawks, coyotes, other cats, skunks, raccoons, etc) I’ll share this with them!!
