I'm trying to stay positive, but I have to admit that it is a real effort lately. In addition to the typical Spring weather, my husband is back to traveling full-time for work. This leaves me at home, trying to balance everything on my own. Let me just say that it's hard.
Here are a few things I'm loving right now...
I don't see many flowers outside yet, so I am drawn to gorgeous pictures of them.

The new mini-series, Mildred Pierce, on HBO. Another reason for me to love Kate Winslet.

I gave up ice cream for a few months. I had been in the habit of enjoying some every night, and I figured Winter was a good time to give it a break. Plus it's so darn cold! But it was my birthday a week ago, and then Haagen-Daaz was on sale at the grocery store, so I guess my break is over. It's still pretty darn cold, but tonight I plan to sit by my fireplace and enjoy some ice cream.

I left a message with our contractors last week, ready to start conversations about our big home renovation. We want to start the planning and design. How exciting!

What else can I do to remain positive and inspired through this cold and wet month of April? I'm seriously asking here. Perhaps something sweet to bake? A great book to read? How about your favorite blog? What is inspiring you right now? Books, music, art, food...I would love to hear your suggestions.
