April Favorite Things

I am so happy to see April go!  Don’t get me wrong, I loved all of the family gatherings and fun things we accomplished this month, but the weather was atrocious!  Snowy and cold, then one warm day, then snowy and cold.  YUCK!  Hopefully May will have more to offer in the weather department.

The bathroom in the basement wasn’t horrible to begin with, but since we were going Read More
