Excited to see you, April

{taken this morning on my walk with Lola}
honest?  i'm really excited to see march go.
I haven't been this excited to see a month come to an end in ages.  
but there are always the lessons.  it will have always given me that.  perspective.  
the hard road is good for that.  
the truth is we don't need a new month or new year to start over.  but for some reason- it helps.
march was the hardest month I've had in years.  which is hard for me to even type.
but I am determined not to let it stretch into April.
April.  I have high hopes for you (:
You are going to be filled with 
taking care of yourself
nurturing relationships
showers
bachelorettes
two amazing projects
my business being officially open {website is up next week!}
watching more sunsets and sunrises
drinking at least 8 glasses of water
choosing thankfulness
remembering that fear is a big fat liar
...

I am a woman who can recover from setbacks no matter how great.  and so are you.
so come on april!

  9. alright, that picture is gorgeous, first. second, what i have noticed is that even the darkest of periods are temporary. it certainly doesn't help when you're IN them though, does it? but, blah blah blah, this too shall pass, blah blah blah.

    what i should say is this: you're a beautiful person. and you deserve every blessing in the world. so, whatever it is that's sucking, i hope it gets better real fast.

  10. i needed this. march was hard for me too...sometimes life just happens.

    here's to looking fear in the face and laughing, because there are much better things ahead for both of us :)

    love you pretty lady

  11. Love it! I felt like you were typing as me last October. It was the worst month of my life, by far! But it is a distant memory now and the good things have continued to grow and multiply and I know they will for you too.

    Chin up, Charlie... April is the turnaround!

    dang girl, my april is filled with wedding planning stuff too- flower mart in LA to help my friend arrange/do her flowers, a bridal shower, a baby shower, AND a bachelorette!

    oh April, i'm so excited to see you! we will be swooning and in love all month, i can just feel it

  13. Lovely Lady - April is going to rock for you - I just know it. You have so much generosity, kindness, love and spirit you will ALWAYS come out top - never fear. Until then know that we're all rooting for you. xx

    p.s. I resigned from my job on Wednesday after putting up with mediocrity and allowing myself to be less than my best for too long. Will be very happy to put that memory behind me and fingers crossed move on to something new!

  22. My mom used to always tell me "If you think negatively... you will receive negativity - but if you stay positive & think this way, it will only benefit you" -- looks like you're on the right path. Cheers to April!
