for love of april

May 4, 2016 | nature & awe | 8 comments

It’s an interesting thing to take photos every day then to look back over them as you build a monthly slide show. My guide is blogger FatMumSlim’s daily prompt, an exercise I really enjoy because it forces me to keep my eyes open and to look at the world in new ways.

April found me celebrating my husband’s return home after more than three years working in Mississippi, where he traveled each Monday morning and returned to South Carolina late Thursday night. It also found me in Great Falls, Virginia, spending a gleeful five days with my dearest high school friends. There was a gathering of college besties, a couple of trips to the mountains, and plenty of sweet Little Bit time.

(I even got a day or two with my sweet Eliza.)

There were bird nests, bird eggs, and baby birds galore. What a happy, happy month it was and how I love looking back over it all with a full, grateful heart. There is so much to love about April!
