Currently / / April

Nashville Art

April is one of my favorite months of the year! It’s our wedding anniversary and the true turn towards spring. I’m excited to see what this month holds.

Making | Piles to donate, piles to store away for another season and piles to throw away. Spring cleaning is in full force!

Wishlisting | Last summer I wrote a post about the 10 shoes every women should own. Well, after putting a good portion of our tax rebate towards savings, Jordan and I allocated a certain amount for each of us to buy something special. I’m finally going to purchase the pair of clogs I’ve wanted for a few years now!

Cleaning | Cabinets and drawers. While we don’t have a lot of closet space we do have several pieces of furniture with extra drawers, so with a little creative rearranging I’ve been able to make room for baby things.

Posting | I’m working on the recap of the third book I read for my 2016 reading challenge. My present conundrum is wanting to abandon the fourth book on my list. I’m about 1/4 the way through and it is such a slog. How do you feel about forcing yourself to read books you’re not fully enjoying, but could possibly enjoy if you simply stick with it?

Tasting | While menu planning this week I felt drawn to dishes involving tomatoes. I made a turkey bolognese on Monday but I also bought ingredients to make tomato soup and grilled cheese!

  1. I totally understand the feeling of being unsure about abandoning a book partway through — I usually give it until halfway and if I’m still not into it by then, it’s probably a lost cause in my world!

    1. There are so many circumstances that make for a good reading experience (even size of print!) but I ended up taking the book back to the library. We’ll see if I ever pick it back up. Ha.

  2. What a cool photo! I used to always make myself finish books that I started, but then I finally decided to let some go, and it was kind of a revelation. If I am slogging or really not liking something, then I’m more likely to turn on the TV instead of pick up a book, so I get way more reading done (and enjoyment!) if I just move on. Happy April, and thanks for joining us again!

    1. That is such a valid point. I found myself avoiding it and I probably could have finished a book in that time. I’ve since returned it to the library and don’t have any regrets!

  3. Those clogs are super cute. So fun to be able to treat yourself. I usually try to make myself finish a book, but if it’s really not good, I say just forget it. Sounds like April is going to be a great month. Hope you have a wonderful anniversary.

  4. Catherine, it’s almost bedtime but now I want tomatoes! Mmm delicious tomatoes!

    It really depends on the book but if I’m not liking it by a quarter of the way through, I would probably put it down. I haven’t read anything for such a long time for pleasure. I really ought to.

    And oh my gosh, those clogs! LOVE! Cannot wait to see what you pair them with!

  5. i LOVE those clogs!! so excited for you 🙂 and i have been donating a ton as well. have you read the book, the magic art of tidying up? i read it last month and totally recommend it!

    1. I haven’t…but I have read a lot about it. I’m not totally sure I’m sold on her theory (like throwing away photos) but even so, I bet I could learn a few tricks.

  6. i have a HUGE pile for a yardsale i’m wanting to hold at the end of the month – so i hear you on the piles everywhere!

    i am loving those clogs!

    also, yes ma’am to the tomato dishes!
