April’s BIG list

I woke up in Colorado this morning to a flurry of Facebook posts about the unexpected two inches of snow Connecticut received last night. Although the last two days in Colorado Springs have been in the 60’s, for once, I agree with all my CT friends – the snow needs to go. The other night Adam and I watched “Frozen” (yes, I’ve joined the masses in singing “Let it go” every second of every day since) and I was hoping that, with the viewing of that movie, we could bid winter farewell and welcome Spring in. I’m dreaming of days of flowy dresses, working from a blanket in the park, Vitamin D soaking into my bones, and planting my little seedlings into our new raised bed. Make no mistake, I’m not wishing for summer. I loathe summer about as much as most of the population loathes winter. But Spring? Spring, I can handle. And this Spring is shaping up to be an incredible one.

March Summary:

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve had to write a 10 page paper, and the first time I’ve had to write about “an emotionally traumatic” time in my life. Geez, Louise. I had a difficult time finding a topic, and then when I did, writing about all the emotions I experienced, lessons I learned, actions I took, etc. But. It’s done And it was a hurdle I had been avoiding for months. Really hoping to have all my coursework done by June for my doula cert, which would be 7 months ahead of when I intended on finishing.

And since every post is better with a picture, this is the view from the end of our street in Colorado…
