april in my corner of the world

This is the fourth month of a year-long blog circle I am participating in with about a dozen women from around the world… at the end of the post is  a link to the next blog and a view of their world in April.
Should you complete the circle you will come back to my blog again…

What a change April brought to us…

The weather is warmer
The colors are popping from the ground
The Earth, again, has begun to grow once more
Life exists outdoors instead of in…


My husband and I also had the pleasure of a 5 day trip to ourselves.
This was the first time we have been alone for more than 1 night since we had kids…
For two days, I took a photography workshop and the other three we spent traveling southern California’s coast…


Please continue the circle to see what April looks like in other areas of our world.
Next up, please visit my friend, Rebecca Spencer, from Buckinghamshire, England for her take on “April In My Corner of the World”


Expecting is pure magic.
The round of the belly, the feel of life inside, knowing that you are growing and creating by simply breathing.
The swell moves forward as you approach “the date”.
Your walk slows, your emotions heighten, the house seems to change.
The moment is coming.
You will never again, with each new child, be quite the same.
Forever your heart is entangled and shared with someone you barely know, but know so well…

Here is a post about  baby Joss, before and after her entrance to the world…
