Wait, it’s April?! Ha, just kidding…kind of. I actually had tried really hard to get this post up last night but the site has been glitchy for me lately (side note, if the pictures are not centered, I tried my best to fix it). But hey, better late than never!
Anyway, this year is starting to feel like a bad dream. I refuse to let this post be a downer though, so I will do my best to keep it light and talk about the happy things of the last month. :)
First of all, Gryffin turned 3 years old!!! We had planned on having his first big birthday party with friends but we will have to reschedule. We ended up getting him 3 balloons (paw patrol, spider man, and a cupcake) and a mini birthday cake. I’m sad we couldn’t have a real birthday party for him but I’m glad we were able to make it a little special. Thank goodness he’s 3 and didn’t quite know what all he was missing yet.
Second, I got to start working from home this past month! Granted, not exactly under the circumstances I was hoping for. It’s definitely made me realize I’ve taken some things in life for granted. I look forward to the day everything can go back to normal…I realize that could be a while and I’m not quite sure things are going to exactly the same again in some respects.
The month also ended with some crazy weather. lots of rain, hail, snow, heavier snow, sunshine, and an earthquake, all in one day. I was sitting down and suddenly felt dizzy and thought my vertigo was back. I looked up and saw the door was swaying, and the cabinet door, and the blinds. I was so relieved it was only an earthquake haha. But seriously, this month has been nuts.
Aside from the obvious craziness that we’re all dealing with, here’s what we’ve been up to this past month…
I’m leaving this one up here since I’m still watching an episode here and there.
Also, I’ve started watching the news lately. I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing, but it feels like the right thing to do. It has also led me to watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune…
The 5th Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck
I’m a little over half way through this book. It’s been a fun little read to take my mind of things at the end of the day.
The Easy Banana Muffins by Amy with Belly Full
My mom sent me the link to her recipe and I’m so glad she did! I usually stick to what I know and like, but by her suggestion I decided to give it a go. So glad I did! Super easy with minimal ingredients and they taste delicious. I will definitely be making these again. :)
Yes, he’s always my favorite but he gets a special shout out this month because my baby turned 3! He is seriously the best thing that ever happened to us. He has the best imagination and loves to laugh. Kind, funny and smart – we are seriously blessed. We love you our little Gryffin!
Anyway, these were the highlights of the last month. These are really challenging times we’re facing and my heart hurts for many of you. I’m thankful we’re not alone in all of this – we’re in it all together.
Much love to you all,
