Make-A-List Monday - April 2019 (in review)

Make-A-List Monday

The month of April was filled with ups and downs.  My "like a daughter" friend, Maureen, welcomed her handsome hubby home from deployment.  This was definitely one of the ups.  



Another up was the beautiful daffodils I would see on my daily walk.  
They make me so happy!

We celebrated both of my son's birthdays in April.



Happy Birthday Kyle and JT!!!

Love you BIG! 
YUM!











                                       
  A "down" in the month of April was the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.

During :(

Back to the "ups"...

I continued to use my Happy Planner this month...

I gave my pantry a good clean-out and did a little organizing.

We celebrated Easter on a beautiful day toward the end of the month...
 My three sweet boys!


My wonderful Mother-in-law and Father-in-law.

My daughter and son-in-law spent Easter week in Savannah, GA.
This is the beautiful church where they attended Easter mass.

The month of April ended with a trip to Lancaster County, PA.  I attended a guide class for my new Bernina 570QE sewing machine.  I was deep in the beautiful farm land of Ephrata, PA.













This is Erma, the cute little Mennonite girl who taught our class.
