Ten Things We Loved In April 2016

Anyone else think this year is just flying by? It’s funny, because it doesn’t seem like that long ago we were celebrating Christmas, but at the same time I’ve been thinking how long ago it feels like we were on Easter break. Yes, I know, that doesn’t really make much sense! I thought I’d do a little round-up of the things we’ve been loving this month. Honestly, this year has passed by in a blur so far and I want to remember things! A monthly round up will allow me to look back and think ‘Aha! That’s what we did […]
