April is one of my favorite months. It’s when the flowers begin to bloom, spring fills the air and a variety of wonderful holidays and observations surround us. Often times, Easter is celebrated in April so the month is full of inspiration, cute bunnies and Easter eggs. Earth day is also observed in April throughout the world. This provides a reminder to appreciate nature and get outside to explore.
