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.
On to April Favorite Things! This month is a hodgepodge of things that made me happy during this drury month. Enjoy!
Seedles are rainbow bright balls of seed, compost, and clay. They add fun and vibrant colors to your yard or neighborhood while benefitting local pollinators. All you have to do is throw them and grow them.
Their mission is simple: “We aim to inspire kids to grow one billion wildflowers to bring back the bees and ensure a sustainable food system for their future.”
This is such a simple, but profound idea! Their blog has some really great information on bees, the bee crisis and fun projects for kids.
Please check them out and help to bring back the bees!
Stop, Breathe & Think app. This is amazing! With 4 year old twins, I NEED to do a lot of breathing throughout the day!
You can set reminders for yourself to slow down and meditate at a time that is consistantly good for you. You check in each day and tell the app how you are feeling based on a few short questions and it gives you a list of recommended meditations that will help you.
My llama water bottle. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am obsessed with llamas and alpacas! They are just the cutest creatures and they HUM! For a while when I was pregnant with the twins, I was trying to get my husband on board with having a few in the backyard. Kind of like really large dogs that help with yard duty. A welcome gift to our two little bundles of joy. It didn’t fly, but maybe one day when we live on my dream farm.
This cutie is a double-walled, insulated, stainless steel water bottle that holds 17 ounces. It keeps liquids cold for 24 hours (seriously does!) or hot for 12.
Rose glasses. There is something about a pretty pink wine in a delicate-looking glass that makes me happy. I bought these a few weeks ago and love them! All that is missing is a quiet French or Italian cafe to be sitting at eating meats and cheeses with a never ending flow of wine!
