Summer Kickoff Feature

What is my “Summer Kickoff” Feature?
Being a self-proclaimed beach bum and all around beach lover, I thought I would start a new feature for the month of May, which happens to be one of my favorite months.  Why you ask? It's because May is the unofficial start of summer and includes my favorite holiday, Memorial Day Weekend. My “Summer Kickoff” feature lasts through the month of May and it is a lot of fun!  Below you will find the posts from each year, excluding any giveaways. 

*In 2016, I'll be doing things a little differently around here for my Summer Kickoff Feature. More info to come!
