Currently // April to May

This month, I'm trying out a new format for my Monthly To Do List. It's going to be a little more personal, as opposed to just a basic list. I want to keep you updated on what's happening in my life on a monthly basis, so this will be a nice way to tell you what's happening in my life currently.

APRIL RECAP

April was a great month. I was really busy, but, thankfully, had one weekend where I had nothing going on. As much as I love being busy, there was something so nice about having that one weekend of nothing. I watched TV, relaxed outside, and went for a run. It was a very "me" weekend, which was amazing. The other weekends were busy! The first day of the month was Easter, so I started April celebrating my Savior's resurrection (and a visit from the Easter Bunny). I then jetted off on my first business trip in my new role to New York City. I spent the week there bonding with my team, seeing a Yankees' game and Broadway show, and enjoying the city. Other highlights from the month include seeing my sister three weekends in a row (which was the best!), seeing the Shen Yun show with my family, attending my church's first 20-30 Something Women's Group, taking a day to Chicago, "Joining the Pact" to never drink and drive, and completing not one, but two!, 5Ks.
