Not going to lie, April has been a rough, rough month. There’s just no sugar coating this one. There were some things that metaphorically blindsided me and I’ve been dealing with emotional whiplash from it all month long. I am beyond happy to say goodbye to this month and move on to the next since the issues have (mostly) been dealt with and I am ready to move on.
Aside from that drama, here’s what we’ve been up to…
WandaVision on Disney+!
We still haven’t finished The Mandalorian – at this point we might just wait until the next season is out haha.
Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I’ve been dying to read a book that I just can’t put down. I was not really expecting this book to be that kind of book but I. Was. Wrong! I’ve been staying up past my bedtime because I don’t want to stop. I’m almost a week in of reading this and about half way done. That might not seem like much, but considering it usually takes me about a month to finish a novel, it’s pretty impressive. At this rate I’ll be done by the end of the weekend.
Napa Almond Chicken Salad from Valeries Kitchen.
Now that the weather is getting warmer, we’re beginning to move away from cozy soups and stews and incorporating more light and fresh meals. This recipe was delicious. We used pita bread and it was perfect! I was out of a few key ingredients when I made this, but still turned out pretty good. I will definitely be making this again. It would be a great picnic option!
This month’s favorite has been all about the little things in life.
Slowing down, enjoying the smell of coffee in the morning, getting rest, reading, bubble baths, etc. When life is hard you have to look for the beauty and blessings that God has given us. It’s so hard to see when you have dense fog and the dark clouds of life in your way, but it makes such a different when you stop to take a moment to be grateful for the things that bring us joy.
Anyway, I hope you all are doing well and staying safe.
Much love to you all,
