Hello April, Hello Thursday, Hello (finally!?!) starting to feel like myself again.
I’m in the habit of sharing a “hello” post when it’s the first Thursday of the month, but when Marc came into the kitchen this morning with a 2 inch pile of photos from his visits to Augusta (seriously, y’all, Marc does not get excited about much, but he loves The Masters) I thought about “things I love about The Masters” ($1.50 pimiento cheese sandwiches? azaleas as pretty as they must be in heaven? no cellphones?)
But as the day unfolded, I decided to stick with my original plan. Here are three things I love about April:
1. The Masters. I was honestly surprised this morning to learn that Marc made his first visit to Augusta in 1979 (i.e., before I even knew him). The Masters wasn’t even on my radar that year. But in the intervening 40 years … I’ve become a fan (see above).

3. Beaufort. This will be our 10th year (we started in 2007 and had to skip two years). Cleaning up that Beaufort link … has taken me a while this afternoon. I loved seeing the photos – – even those really tiny ones from my early blog years – – but they are quite the reminder that times have changed. and yes, I cried… which makes me even more grateful to have this tradition with the good women in my life.
April, even with all the pollen, I love you!
