April 2018 Goals

Happy April! This month kicked off with a sunny Easter celebration yesterday. We had the joy of worshipping alongside thousands of our neighbors at our church’s Easter service held inside the SNHU Arena. Even after a handful of holiday services held at the Arena, it always amazes me to hear so many collective voices lifting up the name of the Lord. After church, we had lunch at a fairly new local restaurant and then had a relaxing evening at home.

March was full and had an exhausting – and sniffly – ending. Dillon came down with flu-like symptoms in the middle of the month, and I followed five days later. I’d managed to stay well all winter and was promptly knocked off my feet for three days in bed. I’m still nursing a cough but thankful to be back into my routine!

Thankfully, the earlier weeks of March were filled with my birthday, a lovely trip to Boston, coffee dates, vendor meetings, and lots of growth as a business owner. I’m covering my March goals with grace, as I went off course and neglected many of the ones I set for the month. Thankfully, I accomplished lots of things that weren’t tied to a specific goal, so I count the month as a win and a reminder to plan well for April.
