What possibly could have kept me away from the blog for almost a month?
I promise I've kept busy, stayed creative, and had fun!
For the first time ever, and with my mom's help, I've planted a little garden just outside our family room sliding doors. It's hard to get a sense of it from the photo, but when I sit out under the patio table umbrella with my coffee in the morning, it feels a bit like a resort. (I'm easily pleased!)

Sunday school has drawn to a close, as well. In addition to planning my final lesson, which has the fourth graders making flowing windsocks to remind them on Pentecost of the power of the Holy Spirit, I prepared sweet little gifties for my girls' teachers. I used a Pinterest inspiration to create the packaging for some sweet springtime Skittles.

I wrote my first guest blog post for a local "mommy blog" called Delaware County Moms. I had the opportunity to attend the grand opening of a re-sale shop called Clothes Mentor, and write a review of our local store. Now I'm pretty devoted to the idea of checking there first before I shop full-price at the mall! Discovering that store came at a great time for me, as I'm really working on adopting a frugal lifestyle this year.

We are doing some traveling in a couple of weeks, so my blogging consistency probably will not return until mid-July, but I promise I am not deserting the blogging world for good!
Enjoy these final weeks of springtime!
