I have no idea where the time is going, but it’s going fast. Turns out it’s officially April now which I almost said is “our busy month,” but they’re pretty much all busy these days — packed with travels, parties, weddings, anniversaries, baseball games and the like. And even though I wore snow boots to work just last week, it finally feels like springtime decided to make its fashionably late entrance to the party and there’s no turning back now.
Things are in bloom.
My allergies won’t quit.
We’ve felt 50- and 60-degree weather.
Hugh finished our taxes this weekend [we high-fived for filing jointly].
The sun is finally showing up on occasion.
There are tourists ev-er-y-where.
Oh and baseball season has officially started, which means Hugh did two fantasy drafts this weekend, has been itching to go to the cages, and already has a game of his own coming up.
Easter with my family was a good kick-off to the season. Mom colored Easter eggs, which my dad and brother quickly turned into egg salad.
We ate a huge, delicious meal featuring a pecan-and-praline-glazed Smithfield ham, but all I captured was this delicious chocolate cupcake with chocolate ganache that I had for dessert.
And I got a new koozie in my Easter basket, just in time for baseball season.
This month I will host a bridal shower and run a 10-mile race, Hugh will work and play baseball, we’ll celebrate our first wedding anniversary, Hugh’s sister will visit for a few days, and we’ll head up to Pennsylvania to see our best buds get married.
Hold on to your pants, kids. Looks like April’s fixin’ to be a bit of a whirlwind.
