Month Ahead – April

Not sure why I like that quote so much… It may seem negative, but I see it as ominous. Almost like a mystery of what is to come.

Today is on-point with the sunshine, though. I’m at my desk, windows open, working on a list of April goals.

Month Ahead - April //

So far, I’ve got:

Eat more fresh produce.
Keep my plants alive.
Go hiking.
Run 50 miles for the month.
Drink more water.

It’s hard to believe that just a few days ago, Richard and I celebrated 3 months of marriage. We celebrated that day by finally checking out the delectable treats that Duck Donuts in Cary has to offer!

Also last month, our wedding photo book arrived!

We are so happy with it. The photos look stunning. When designing the book at, I opted for the lay-flat pages — perfect for a coffee table display!

I peppered quotes from our vows to each other throughout the book, to remind us of the romance and closeness that we felt on that special day.

Month Ahead – March

If only the weather outside reflected the third line of that quote.


I see clouds.

And rain.

And according to my phone, it’s freezing cold outside.

So thanks a lot, March.
