Happy April, friends! I can’t tell you how happy I am this month is here! And because you know I love me some lists, I’m listing the reasons why below!!!
1. Our BIG Studio Recital Series is DONE! Some of you may remember that my day job is running a music lesson studio and teaching private lessons. Well, on April 1st we had our annual recital day. In the past years we’ve done 3 recitals in the same day. Now, the studio has grown so much that we ended up needing to do 4 recitals in one day!!! I was worried that it would be too strenuous a day for us teachers, but we made it through and everything went super smooth! 4 recitals and nearly 100 students! (But now we can all relax a little since the BIG event is behind us!)
2. We are going on another adventure!!! YAY! Spring Break starts here next week and Mr. Bingley and I are super excited to pack our bags and go explore Southern California! 😉 (My first time in the state and Mr. Bingley’s first time seeing some sights, since he’s only gone to CA for conventions and meetings!) We are flying into Los Angeles and driving down to San Diego and then back to LA! But along the way we will be doing some awesome activities and meeting with some very special friends! Cannot wait!!!
3. Spring weather = reading and blogging outside! We had the weirdest March here in NC, the temps were colder than they were in February…and snow! LOL! But it looks like Spring is here to stay now and that means blogging from our screened-in porch and getting my hammock out or taking a drive down to the beach! Woot woot!
4. Berry season! Last week I saw that strawberry season has begun here! We have a U-pick farm here that we’ve been going to these 10 years now (see picture on right)! I can’t wait to go pick some and eat my fill….every day! LOL! And after strawberries, we have blueberries, then blackberries!!! Mr. Bingley loves him some strawberries too!
