5 Things to be Happy About: April Edition

Posted in Lifestyle
on April 3, 2017

I’ve always been a little biased about April because it’s my birthday month, so naturally I love this month more than some others. Raise your hand if your birthday month is April!? There is a lot that I am especially looking forward to this month, so I’m not too sure how I’m going to keep it to five things, but we’re going to try!

1| Travel

I find that I get to travel in April and May whether it’s for my birthday or I’m able to take time off from work because it’s not the busy season for us yet. This month, I’m going to Boston for a week for the first time with Josh, and we are both so excited to take time off from work and get a chance to explore a new city. We have been trying to schedule one city trip a year so we can explore new places every year. Needless to say, there will be some exciting travel-related content coming your way on the blog!

2| Treat Yourself

It might have to do with this month being my birthday month and the Easter season, but I find that I’m always more comfortable to treating myself to anything whether it’s dessert, wine, or an experience (like a trip to a new city)! After the holidays, I get pretty strict about eating healthy, working out and saving my money. After three months, I’m ready to give myself one (or several) treats!

3| Easter 

Easter has always been a holiday I look forward to because it’s a time for family, food and it’s overall a relaxing and enjoyable day. We always celebrate the holiday at my parent’s house with a big brunch. We even still color eggs as a family and get chocolate treats from my mom! But hey, it’s a tradition my family has and loves, and it’s something I look forward to every April.

4| My Birthday 

I’ll actually be in Boston on my birthday, so I think it’ll be a great way to ring in 23 years! Stay tuned for a post coming up soon on 23 lessons I’ve learned in 23 years. I think it’s something you’ll enjoy reading. When is your birthday month? Make sure to share in the comments below!

5| Spring Outfits

For those who don’t know, I’ve been ready for spring since January but the weather here in PA hasn’t been giving that to me. We had a snowstorm in the middle of March, and all I’ve been wanting is to have warm enough weather to wear spring dresses and outfits. I’m hoping April is when I can finally bust out my spring clothes since I haven’t been able to yet!

What are you looking forward to this month? Make sure to share in the comment below!

    Easter is something that makes me happy, too! I love that it’s a season to focus solely on God and what He’s done for us! 🙂

    • YES! So much appreciation for this, Abbey! Thank you so much for your comment 🙂

    • Yes, Cheers to a beautiful season! I’m also looking forward to spring outfits 🙂

  • I JUST started shopping for some lighter ‘spring’ gear and it’s the best feeling knowing you can soon trade bulky sweaters and heavy coats and boots for lighter, brighter things!

    • I can’t wait to put away all my bulky sweaters officially because it turns out we might get some snow tomorrow. I’m in denial about it, but I’m still looking forward to wearing cute, spring patterns and colors.

  • These are all great things to be happy about this month! Yah for your birthday coming up! My birthday is next month. I have never been to Boston but would love to go in the future. I agree that treating yourself sometimes is needed.

    • Yes! I’m so excited about this trip because it’s going to be a full week of relaxing and treating myself for my birthday week, but it is definitely long over due.

  • I absolutely love this post! Celebrating things that people are happy about is pretty rare & makes life so much happier. Maybe I need to start making a list of things I’m happy about too!

    • I definitely recommend a gratitude journal if that’s an easy way for you to stay consistent with expressing appreciation for the little things in life! I loved keeping one back when I had a lot more time to journal daily.
