April Favorites 2018

*sigh* It's almost time to say goodbye to one of my favorite months..... How was your April? The weather here was not great for most of the month, but we had a good week to finish it off and I have so many great things to share with you!

1. Birthday festivities!

My birthday was full of special treatment this year- I definitely felt loved! My parents brought me coffee early in the morning and snuck into my house to put up some birthday decorations while I was at work, the art teacher at my school took me out for lunch, and one of my sisters got me tickets to go see the Boston Symphony and Yo-Yo Ma play at Carnegie Hall! It has been years since I went to the symphony and my first time hearing Yo-Yo Ma live, so that was a special treat. All of these are just the special things people did for me on my actual birthday- I had so many other friends and family shower me with love this year and I was really reminded of the blessings they are in my life :)

2. Planner updates

OK I'm trying really hard not to sound like a commercial here, but honestly this was a HUGE part of my month and very exciting for me so bear with me please- all of the #PlanMyWholeLife Music Teacher Planners that I design are officially updated for the 2018-2019 school year and I am so excited! If you want to see some of the new updates I've made this year (besides all of the new calendar dates), I posted this video on my Facebook page that shows some of the biggest changes.

3. Spring break

My spring break was just about as great as I could ever hope for: an old friend came to visit, we (finally) got some warm weather so I could play outside with my daughters, I got caught up on work, and got to relax and (gasp) even sleep in! I love my job and I love my students but it was definitely nice to get some sunshine and slow down for a few days.
