Best of April

Boy did that month speed by. I hardly realized it was March, and we're already two days in. 

Better late than never, here's the Best of April:

The Post That Brought the Most Visitors

From Elise Blaha Cripe's Personal Collection
Creating Creative Lives: Elise Blaha Cripe: The first post of my creating creative lives interview series was a hit right from the start. Of course, I had no doubt that it would be. Elise has, I think, universal appeal. Even if you're not into scrapbooking or crafty endeavors, you can't help but get a little caught up in her zest for life. 

And let's be honest - I'm really proud of myself. I decided that I wanted to do these interview posts with women that inspire me, and I just started sending out the emails - so bold! While some haven't panned out, I've been so excited by the responses that I have gotten. And it feels like such a treat to connect with these women who I basically think of as celebrities. 

The Post That Brought the Most Tears

You Can Go Home Again: In a very close second for the number of visitors, the post about my weekend reunion at Wesleyan almost swept the whole Best of April. My Wesleyan ladies were true to form with waterfalls of tears and lots of emails and re-posts and general fawning over each other and how marvelous we all are. It's one of the lovely fringe benefits of having a big group of friends - basking in collective awesomeness without feeling any embarrassment from self-adoration.

The Post That Brought the Most Commenters

You Can Go Home Again: No surprise here - the ladies were typing while they wept. 

The Post That Brought the Most Jealous Pangs

Seating Fit For a Queen: I wasn't even posting about the rug, but man, do people like it. I've actually been considering setting up an alarm system to ward off all the folks who've been threatening burglary. I kid. What I actually want to do is remind everyone that the rug is available right here for an excessively reasonable price. No need to steal mine!

So, that was April. A month of connections - old and new. A month of settling in and reaching out.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and shared in this month's journey with me. I'm so grateful you were here.
