It is April today. No fools to be had in my neck of the woods and no fooling either.
This is the month I turn 30 and start a new decade.
This is the month I end my current job after a year and go into a bit of an unknown/new beginning phase that will last quite a while. New human, new job, new commute? new schedule? What is in store for me? I jump off the dock this month.
This month I will be traveling solo without a kid and without a husband for the first time since spring of 2013.
It will be the longest I’ve been away from my child ever.
It might be too long.
But it means I get to do a lot of ME things. And I get to visit with the lovely Margaret and Jeff and meet a certain Kelly in real life for the first time ever! And edit things and be inspired and sleep in a bed without a snoring mate. And not have to worry about being home by a certain time or nap schedules. I may be feeling very giant, pregnant, and short of breath, but hot diggity… I’ll take it.
April. April is a good month. It’s for realies spring. It is for realies flowers and rain showers and sunny mornings and sunny evenings and a glimpse into what summer life in Seattle is like with the never ending day and the lazy after work evenings in the park.
April is good.
What is this month for you?
