Month in Review: April 2014

Hello May...I sure hope you are bringing with you some nice, warm weather! The last few days, I've needed a heavy jacket to walk the dogs in the morning and we even had a few days of frost last week. Enough of winter weather. I'm so ready for the summer. 

Anyway, this month brings BEA and I am so excited and a tad nervous! I just don't know what to expect! I've been scouring all the tip posts and trying to put together a schedule of what I want to do/who I want to see, but if you've been and have any helpful tips, please share!!! Also, if you are going to be there, let me know - I'd love to meet you.
