April brings the end of the challenge.

It’s our last day of the Canadian history challenge!

If you haven’t taken any of the quizzes yet…you still can!  Get your entries in before midnight tonight.  Don’t miss out.  20 questions isn’t much when you consider you’re getting a FREE GIFT just for answering them!  No strings attached, I promise.  Oh, and if you have been taking the quizzes, make sure you go back and check that your name is on all four.  I think I saw a couple who had forgotten one day.   You wouldn’t want to miss out because you thought you had done them all…so check!  One April arrives you won’t get another chance.

April is here!  Tomorrow!  Are you ready for it?  I am SO ready for it.  Sunshine, warmer weather, flowers, Resurrection Sunday…I love April.    I am especially looking forward to being able to spend a large part of it OUTSIDE this year.  That’s super exciting with our own yard for the first time since my husband and I got married.  Don’t get me wrong, our apartment was a blessing from the Lord.  And moving down the hallway to a much larger apartment when Baby #1 came along was an even bigger blessing.  But now, the Lord is once again blessing us with this wonderful gift of outdoor space.  I can’t wait to share with you all the things I plan on doing this year.

So, Resurrection Sunday is quickly approaching.  I know a lot of people observe Lent which began around March 5.  But that’s not something I have ever done as it brings a certain association with it.   I do, however, believe it is important to prepare our hearts, much like we do at Christmas, to remember the sacrifice that Christ made for us on the cross.  I’m excited to share with you some of the things I’ll be doing during the month of April to do just that.  And you can all share what you do, how you celebrate this special time of year with your family.

April is also going to be fashion month!  Well, okay, maybe not fashion (since I don’t consider myself the most fashionable person out there) but I’ll be talking clothes, haha.  And accessories!  I love accessories…and I can’t wait to share with you some of the new items I’ve been working on.  I’ve recently been convicted about dressing intentionally, and I believe these accessories fit the bill!  (you can see some of my new items on my facebook page and they should be added to Etsy in the next week or so)

I can’t talk much about make-up since I don’t wear a whole lot but we’ll see where the series takes us this month.

And we’ll be having another giveaway soon.  So keep an eye out for that.  It just might be something you can share with your mom for Mother’s Day…or keep for yourself (‘cause sometimes we all just need a pretty something…(grin)).

Whew…I think April might be busy.  But that’s okay.  I like busy!

Happy Monday, Everyone!   

And Happy April!
