Hey guys! I’m so sorry for being away for so long. I really have no idea how time got away from me. I feel like the weeks have flown by! That said, I recently found a new way to review my month with numbers! I found it on a great blog, Notes on Paper. You can read more about it on her blog, but I basically summarize what happened to me during the month using numbers. I think this could be a regular feature that I could combine with my monthly link roundup. Tell me what you think about it!

7 weeks since my last blog post
As I said, I can’t believe it’s been so long! I feel like the year just started and here we are heading into April. What’s up with that? Time is moving way too fast and it needs to slow down. I feel like I don’t have enough time to do everything I want to do. How is time moving for you?
6 1/2 weeks until my blog anniversary
I can’t believe that this blog has been here for almost two years already! I had a bit of a hiatus for a little while, but that’s ok. I’ve come a long way, I think. To celebrate the anniversary I’ve been thinking about having a little giveaway. It will be my first giveaway ever, so I’m really kind of excited for it to happen.
2 family members visited
My aunt and uncle came to visit for a few days. My uncle is a teacher and it was his spring break, so they came by for a little while at the beginning of his break. It was really fun! I just wish that I didn’t have to work while they were here. But I do have to go down to Florida for a graduation this summer, so I’ll get to see them and more of my family later. I can’t wait! I really need a vacation anyway.
60 invitations made
Speaking of graduations, I was tasked to make the invitations for my cousin’s high school graduation. I can’t believe she’s graduating! It makes me feel so old. Anyway, it was really great to make her invitations. I did the same for my sister’s college graduation a few years ago. I’m sorry, but those companies charge way too much for invitations, when you can easily do something nice on your own. They came out so cute, too!
9 trips to Starbucks made
While I do love Starbucks, for some reason this month I went way more than normal. For me anyway. It’s probably my recent addiction to their Awake Tea Latte. Perfect for the early morning jolt! Plus they also have that new shaken sweet tea. It’s sooooo good! I want one right now.

* Again, I have to share the link to Notes on Paper. I am stationery, paper, and notebook obsessed. I really love all of her blog posts, including her blog themed series. You should really check it out.
* Bloglint is a new social community for bloggers to connect with each other. They have just opened and I just joined. I can’t to see how it grows.
* The images I used for this post and the new layout for my blog were both made, at least in part, using Canva. I absolutely love it!! You can make gorgeous images using photos or using just their features. They have preset formats, such as a Facebook cover, presentation, or business card. Or you can use your dimensions and create something from scratch.
