May Madness

May Madness

Patti Kaminski and Suzie Beyer at the inaugural Sugar Land Arts Fest hosted by The Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation and The City of Sugar Land. Congratulations to the organizing committee on an amazing event!

For years I have professed that the months of May and December are by far the busiest and most hectic months of the year.  In our house, it has just always worked out that way.By June 1st and January 1st, I let out a collective sigh of relief and vow to take a minute of much needed R and R.  And it’s looking like the same is holding true for this May.

For many of us, May brings the milestone of graduations – for our babies, for our family members and even for ourselves in some cases – and all of the pomp and circumstance that goes along with the commencement celebrations.  In the Kaminski household, our baby boy graduates from college, and it’s a bittersweet moment for this momma.  I’m sharing my “Momma Trauma” in my On the Porch with Patti on page 11.  I hope you enjoy it.

Perhaps the biggest May milestone is Mother’s Day. To help you make mom feel special on her big day, we’re sharing a video recipe for a brunch treat mom is sure to love.  Don’t worry – it’s an easy one.  Even I could do it!

For businesses in Katy, the Katy Area Chamber has reached a major milestone.  For over 60 years, the Chamber has been helping area businesses succeed and has been contributing to the community in so many ways.  With Matthew Ferraro at the helm, a personal friend and colleague for many years, I know the Chamber is on the path to continue to serve the Katy business community for another 60 years.  Read about what the Chamber has to offer on page 6.

There’s so much to keep your calendar full during May, so choose and choose wisely.  As Henry David Thoreau said, “It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?”  Be busy about the things that bring you joy this May and every day.

Absolutely yours,
