Our Marian Month of May


I love the month of May.  In addition to it being the month of our Blessed Mother, it is also the month of our anniversary, Mother's Day and the birthdays of many of our family members!  While it can be an expensive month, it is really is a month long party around here!

To start the month off (after celebrating the first day with St. Joseph, of course), we turn to flowers for Our Mother. 



We always like to have a themed centerpiece on our kitchen table.  

Today we also had some friends over, so we decided to crown our Mary statue.  Each May we keep track of just how many May crownings we can take part in.  This is #1.

 




And what is a celebration without a treat to go along with it?

 

May the Blessed Mother wrap her mantle around you and keep you from all unnecessary spiritual and temporal harm.

Mary, Queen of the Family, pray for us.
