March, April

Boston

I’m in Italy! But don’t worry, I have two wonderful guest posts lined up for while I’m away. Hint, hint. And, before we get to that, I wanted to do a quick Instagrammy recap of the past two months (since it will be May when we get back)!

March felt like a never-ending month. The continual snow and cold was not at all welcome. But despite the snow, we did manage to get outside to prune the fruit trees… and build a snowman.

I did get a chance to escape Boston for one weekend for a girl’s reunion in Philly. It was so great to spend time with my favorite girls, trying to cram 6 months worth of conversation into two short days, and of course, eating very well.

Then, all of a sudden it was April and things went crazy. I’ve barely had time to catch my breath. A major stressor was finding a new apartment – which thankfully is done, and I’m excited about the new place. Work was also very busy at times, there was a lot to get done in the garden, AND I had to make sure I celebrated my 24th birthday with adequate enthusiasm (I think it was a success). Add to that the chaos in Boston last week, and I feel like I’m not going to be done processing April for a while. However, one thing I can always appreciate about April? The flowers:

And that covers the major stuff, I think. I’m going to do a more detailed update on the garden soon (although our plants keep dying, so it might be kind of a sad update…) and of course I’ll have lots to share from Italy. But until then, enjoy the guest posts!

  1. Your photographs are so gorgeous Katie. Argh, loving these winter-to-spring posts around the blogosphere (sadly, ours is opposite, autumn to winter!). Just wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the Kreativ blogger award. No pressure to do anything (as there are mixed opinions on these things, even for myself!) but just know that I appreciate your creativity and you as a blogging friend! Have fun in Florence! xo http://laurasmess.me/2013/05/01/awards-and-acknowledgements-ii/
