Interior Design Inspiration & Lovely Finds in April

I’m so happy it’s May! April found me hard at work on the blog (my first collaboration with Home Depot was exciting!!!), healing from illness, spring cleaning, vacationing in Arizona, and celebrating two family events in addition to Easter. Instead of something brand new today, I am sharing a roundup of Interior Design Inspiration & Lovely Finds in April.

It’s not that I’m slacking off…I have spent all day updating links and trashing outdated posts. Thank you so much for bearing with me in regards to ads on this site and the time my image-heavy site takes to load. I know ads can be ugly and annoying, but since it can take me 10 hours to create a single post, every bit of the ad and sponsored income (which has always been applied to my kids’ tuition costs) helps.

      Hi Leslie! Thank you so much for checking up on me, friend. I’m still struggling. GB attacks began in August – surgery in September – a couple of okay months then more pain and attacks since February. The problem is breaking down fat. And fat helps stabilize blood sugar, feel full, and lots of good things! My history of Crohn’s disease complicates matters a bit – I had enjoyed remission since 2012 and have always eaten low fat/high fiber. We’re hoping this is a lengthy adjustment after GB. I eat healthier than ever but don’t feel like myself and sure miss my ability to have a little butter or chocolate. This post may be the one you were seeking:
