A photo a day...

Just like March, April seemed to fly by (how is it already May 8th?!). New York was blessed with weeks of sunny weather, Brian and I had a romantic getaway to Cape May, and I spent a lot of time catching up with friends around the city. It was a fantastic month. I also participated in the April Photo a Day Challenge

Here are my 30 photos for the 30 days of April...

1. Your reflection Rainy day reflection. Do you see me? 
2. Color My nails were painted with my new favorite polish, Thanks a Windmillion, three out of the four weeks of April. 
3. Mail I love real mail! I sent out a lot of Peeps Easter cards this year. 
4. Someone who makes you happy It's no secret Brian makes me very happy. 
5. Tiny Our little ducklings in science were not so tiny anymore on April 5th! 
6. Lunch My lunch the first day of spring break was heavenly. Brianne and I sat outside and enjoyed Mexican food and margarita samplers in the West Village. 
7. Shadow My camera is always part of my shadow. 
8. Inside your wallet There are lots of credit cards and points cards inside my wallet. I am always happy when there is a full manicure card in my wallet- free manicure time! 
9. Younger you My first grade self at the Walker Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis. 
10. Cold We enjoyed cold frozen custard from Kohr Bros. in Cape May.

  8. I love your nail polish, and that little duck is way too cute! I want one, though my cat might not be too pleased.
