Going on in April

watching the buds turn into flowers and leaves. And learning about everything that’s already planted in our yard.

What’s this? A new 7 things post? Who’d of thunk? But here I find myself, freshly on the other side of 30. New city. New baby. New blog. With all these new things in my life I thought I’d offer up a list of my tried-and-true summer faves for a little bit of balance. 1. […]
