april thoughts

I can't say I'm sad to see March go. March is always, without fail, my lowest month of the year overall. There's just something about the month, from childhood and beyond, that make me just so...well...sad. But it's not an in-your-face kind of a feeling. It's subtle, and it follows me in everything I do.

I guess a lot of it has to do with my dad. And him leaving. In March. Everything bad seems to come in March. And sometimes it can be so crippling and so hard to get through. I feel like the month never ends. But it always does. Without fail, I make it through the 31 days. And every year, I feel a bit stronger and bit prouder of myself for making it through.

Thankfully, that's behind me now. And with April, I have a fresh outlook on spring and lots of upcoming activities and projects.

So cheers, to a great month and positive thoughts.

And thanks for bearing with me for the past week while I took a little blog vacation. Sometimes you just really need a bit of time off, right?

I'll leave you with a few pictures from my blogger date last weekend with the ever-lovely Shannon from The Scribble Pad and her beyond adorable baby boy Behr. I seriously love this blogging community for introducing me to someone as awesome and fun as Shannon.
clearly, we both got the stripes and cozy knits memo. 
our blogging adventures tuckered poor Behr out before I could get a picture!
This blogging community is amazing. I love it all :)
