Linking up with Leigh Kramer to share what I’ve been into lately.
what April looks like in my backyard (April 8)
I left a chilly Louisville on April 9 for FFW and returned on the 13th to a city in bloom. Spring has sprung and I couldn’t be happier about it.
April has been crazy (at least by my standards): I’ve been to Michigan and Chicago and Cincinnati and home, learning all about reading and writing and education.

What I’m reading
Between traveling (airplane reads!) and prepping the summer reading guide, I’ve been reading even more than usual.
Remember the books I can’t wait to read in 2014? I got to read three of them in April. Girl at the End of the World exceeded my (high) expectations and I finished it in two days. I told you about Delancey yesterday. The Nesting Place is unlike any decorating book I’ve ever read. I devoured it in two days and now it will live on my coffee table forevermore.
Usually I tell you what I’m watching right here but with everything going on in April I’ve been watching … nothing. Except Emma Approved. And only because those episodes are 5 minutes long.
But apparently Pemberley Digital knows I’m moving because even Emma Approved is on hiatus effective last Friday. Hurray back—I want to know what happens next!
