april : favourite things

HomeI’ve chosen to do something different to kick-start this month. Rather than recalling each post in April, I’m only going to choose a few of my favourites. I figure that it’ll be a much more simplified read for you, and more fun for me. :-)))

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetThe photo of the day that seemed to set the entire mood for the month was a picture of an abandoned barn. The quote discussed the simplest things in life being the most realistic. This is something that I never believed in until recently, and have been actively trying to make my life less complicated in the meantime. It hasn’t been easy, but no one ever said that life would be.

Shrimp Pasta 7I ended up publishing three posts in regards to Easter last month. My best one, which was also a recipe post, was this Shrimp Pasta. It remains the most delicious pasta that I have tried (and made) to date.

Potholder DIY 1Speaking of the kitchen, I collaborated with my mother-in-law to publish a DIY that she had given to my husband and I. The Quilted Potholder was one of my most cherished presents from her. You can read why by visiting here.

PIC 14Lora Higgins from The Tiny House Teacher also had a guest post on Hello, Scarlett Blog. Her beautiful Tiny Home was featured here. I find her lifestyle to be so refreshing and truly an inspiration. If you missed her home, please check it out!

Breakfast at Tiffany's 8So what was my favourite post of the entire month? It was this one, which took me seven years to write.

LakeWhat do you think of my first ‘favourite things’ post? Should I go back to summarizing the entire month? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I prefer the favorites posts to a recap.
    Love that tiny home pic and the pasta plate is giving me a craving.

    Love your recap of April. Audrey’s grave brought tears to my eyes. And I didn’t even know her. Maybe it reminds me of my parents’ fresh gravestones. Love the tiny houses. However, 168 sq ft is too small, that’s the size I want my coffin to be. 600 to 800 is perfect. A haven. And one last thought. Change is NOT hard my daughter. Stagnancy is death. Change is a challenge. Make your life challenging in every way. Bumps and scrapes along the way is good. It’s called life and living. I embrace change and independence. My wish for you.
