Things I Posted:
My posting frequency also took a hit this month. I have been so distracted with adoption related things and traveling that I just didn’t post as often. This might be a trend for a while, but I’m hoping to get back to a somewhat regular schedule soon.
April was a good and very busy month! I didn’t get a ton of reading done, but I did a lot of fun things. It started off with my husband and me going on our anniversary trip (6 years!) to Florida! We spent the first two days at Harry Potter World, which I had never been to, and it was so much fun!! Then we spent the rest of the week at the beach. It was our last adults-only vacation before the adoption, which is apparently called a “babymoon” now 🙂
We went to our town’s festival that they throw every spring, the Buttercup Festival. It was super cute and I can’t wait to take our little one there next year! I had my last tea party for the foreseeable future, which was lovely and bittersweet. And then the last weekend of the month was spent at a friend’s wedding. I was a bridesmaid and I sang during the ceremony and it was lovely all around 🙂
My May TBR Pile:
The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
Cozy Minimalist Home by Myquillyn Smith
In on It: What Adoptive Parents Would Like You to Know About Adoption by Elisabeth O’Toole
