How did your April begin?


  1. So many things to be thankful for! I like your list of blessings! :)

  2. Raquel, I have to confess that I'm semi envious of your job. Congrats again on turning twenty!

    This month is off to a great start for me! I attended a church youth retreat last weekend and heard some wonderful lectures on reconciliation and the book of Ephesians.

    I hope you had a Happy Easter!

    1. haha it is pretty cool.
      Thanks for the congrats!
      Sounds like you had a great start to the month as well.

  3. Looks like you had a great start to the month! Hope it only gets better and better!

  4. Again, these are ALWAYS such cute, Raquel. Yay for Insurgent fun. Cannot wait for that pretty to be on DVD. (Then again, maybe it should take its time to allow me to get myself in gear and read the book.) Flowers, they're always a bright spot. And happy belated birthday. Hope you had a wonderful day - and welcome to the "twenties." ;)

    1. Thanks, Rissi. Yeah, I'm still plugging away at reading through that book. I try to take it with me everywhere so whenever I have a free moment, I can read a chapter or two.
      Flowers are indeed lovely.
      And thank you for the welcome! haha
