The Month Ahead // April

the month ahead - april

Raise your hand if you are having a hard time believing that it’s APRIL. Of 2014! You guys, Q1 of this year is done-zo. That’s bananas. This month, with warmer weather ahead, I’ve got an outdoor picnic planned (it’ll be like this one) as well as a bunch of happy hours and dinner get togethers. Plus, Joe and I will finally be able to re-plant our little terrace garden. It will come as a shock to no one that exactly zero of our plants made it through the winter…so we’re going to put in all new herbs, a few flowers, and even a tomato plant this year! It’ll be nice to look outside and not see brown, dead plants all shriveled up in pots anymore. I’ll be sure to share some pictures once we’ve planted! Other than that, from where I sit right now, April is kind of like a countdown to May, with it’s holidays and visits from friends…and it gets us another month closer to our June trip to France!

For this month’s park picture, definitely no snow on the ground or any leaves on trees — but you can really see the buds starting to come in on the trees. Spring’s finally here!

I loved reading about what everyone had on the docket in March. What do you have going on this month?

    April is going to be super busy! I’m gearing up for my first blog conference this weekend, my first half marathon the following, a baby shower for a friend and lots of other exciting things. I can’t believe the first quarter is over, but I’m excited to see what the rest of 2014 has in store for me.

    I can’t believe it’s April either, especially considering it SNOWED yesterday in New Haven! I’m just looking forward to putting away the long winter coat and busting out some pastels and skirts :)

    I have a similar post up on my blog today where I feature my goals or motivations for the month. I’m looking forward to a Vegas trip at the end of the month and have been stressing out about getting in bikini shape! haha.

    Niece’s birthday, shooting the first wedding of the season, and refraining from spending as March was expensive! But I’m typing this comment from our brand new iMac, so, you know, worth it.
