This May seems like it really flew by, with a highlight reel including the end of law school, time with friends and family, some awesome runs, fun new recipes, and treats while out on the town. On Monday we will be ushering in June, so although there’s still a full weekend left (including a 10K race for me tomorrow!) I figured it was high time for a recap of this month.
On May 6, I took my last ever final exam of law school. After four years of high school, three years of college, and three years of law school, it’s all over. I could hardly believe it when it happened. It felt so surreal. And on May 21st, I graduated! I went through commencement with my family in attendance, wearing a ridiculous outfit and loving every minute.
I dined at some of my favorite restaurants, with delicious post-run brunches and JG Melon dinners. I also spent way too much time at Alice’s Tea Cup, which inspired one of my new recipes this month – an Apple Butter Tea Cake.
And of course, Confetti Crispie Clouds, Peanut Butter Puff-in-a-Mug, and Decadent Dark Chocolate Cupcakes for all the dessert aficionados out there! I really love my sweet treats to end a meal or my day, and I’m happy to share the ways I feed my cravings with all of you in my recipe posts and photos.
Let’s not forget the graduation macarons…
…or the ice cream! My family knows my sweet tooth. Not only was I introduced to Ferris Acres and lucky to have a return trip, I got to grab a scoop of rich and creamy honey vanilla with rainbow sprinkles at my hometown favorite, Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe. They serve Mr. Shane’s ice cream there, which is a wonderful local brand that used to have its own stand-alone shop but became a wholesale-only creamery when I was in middle school.
I enjoyed that sweet treat on Memorial Day, to cap off a Monday filled with nostalgic fun. I took a break from the start of bar studying to attend the town parade with my family. They say that half the town marches, and the other half turns out to watch, and judging by the crowds it must be true!
All in all, it was a great way to end a momentous month. What was the highlight of your May?
