Currently in April

 It's the first Wednesday of the month and time for the Currently link up with Jennifer at Overflowing with Thankfulness.  This month we're talking about what we're currently loving, looking forward to, buying, planting, and cleaning. 


loving: My sister is up from North Carolina with her family and I am loving seeing them again! 


we had a house full for Easter


looking forward to: I have a girl's weekend coming up in the Nashville area and I am so looking forward to it!  Ian also turns 20 later this month and I'm trying to come up with a fun way to celebrate leaving his teenage years behind. 

buying: Since we hosted Easter dinner I bought a few decorations to make our house feel festive for the occasion.



planting:
 Nothing yet; I usually don't start planting anything until at least Mother's day or possibly even Memorial Day because we can still get snowy/ frosty/icy days and nights well into May. 

cleaning: I spent all last week cleaning the house for our Easter company and now I'm spending this week cleaning up the house after our Easter company!

  2. Enjoy your visit with your sister! I love your Easter table decoration. And I think the worst thing about company is you clean before they arrive and then you have to clean after they leave. Hahaha!!!

    1. Yes! My husband always tries to get me to just wait and clean after but I can't let them think my house isn't clean. 😂

  18. Have fun with your sister. I can't believe your son is 20 already, it seemed they were just little boys not too long ago.

  22. Hi Joanne, what a lovely Easter you had! So nice to have family visit and I have to say I really love how you've decorated for Easter! Enjoy your girls weekend away at Nashville. That's somewhere I'd love to visit. I'd like to see a show or two at the Grand 'ol Oprey (did I get that right?) but most of all I'd love to visit the snowy mountains in the Tennessee area. Thanks for linking up with #WWWhimsy - hope you're having a great weekend! xo

    1. Thank you! We went to the smoky mountain in Tennessee a few summers ago and it was such a beautiful area.
