The start of May is one of my favorite times of year. To me, it means warmer weather, beach vacations with a drink in hand and pedicures. So, what’s the best way to kickstart the month? Cinco de Mayo, of course! For many of us, this holiday revolves around eating and drinking — mainly guacamole and margaritas. (Who’s with me?)
