Happy April everybody, it is O-fficially Spring!
Well, at least here in Virginia it is, and hopefully it is or will be very soon where you’re at.
If you’re new around here, I do this whole “enjoy the month” thing at the beginning of each month to help myself (and hopefully you) stay in the season we’re currently in. There’s nothing wrong with looking ahead and being excited for the next month or season, but sometimes I think what’s special about the time you’re currently in gets lost in all that.
So, here are some of my ideas for things you can do in the month of April, let’s get started!
Easter is Sunday, April 16th this year!
Corey and I don’t go too crazy with this holiday but I have put together an Easter egg hunt for him and his older brother one year and it was hilarious. There are a ton of fun activity ideas on Pinterest if you want to switch it up from the traditional Easter egg hunt.
Wake up early one Saturday and go check out what your local Farmer’s Market has to offer!
You know the saying, “April showers bring May flowers”? Go on out there and dance in the rain one day. Just make sure you’re wearing waterproof mascara.
April 22nd is Earth Day, make sure you do something good for the environment!
Nothing says spring to me like a tulip. Doesn’t matter the color, whenever I start seeing them in the floral department at the grocery store I know spring is here. Make sure you pick some up to incorporate them around your casa.
Remember that landscape plan you came up with last month? Start implementing it this month!
If you’re not feeling like updating your landscape you can easily update your curb appeal with some awesome new planters or window boxes. What’s great about these is you can have greenery in there that stays green all year long and then you can switch out the fun colorful stuff each season.
If you’re sitting around one weekend with nothing to do, check out what’s going on in your neck of the woods! Just google your city or county local events and the list should pop right up!
So, April is pretty much flower month to me, but here are some other ideas from March that will still apply this month:
- Make a Wreath- You can find my tutorial here.
- Start a work-out routine
- Freshen up and get a man, pedi, facial, whatever blows your skirt up
- Go shopping for some new spring shoes and clothes
- If you haven’t done your Spring cleaning yet, you still got time
Do y’all have any specific April/spring activities you’re excited about? Let me know what you’re planning this month in the comments!
