I didn’t do this post in March because I was overall kind of bummed about life in general- come to think of it, that would have been the ideal time to do it, right?! In any case, I decided I loved thinking up happy little moments every day too much to quit for good, so I’m back with every day little moments for the month of April.
1- Brunch at my brother’s house, lots of nephew time!
2- Interview with Jeremy from Our Lady Peace, watching the OLP sound check, and overall great staff meeting with all the people at CONFRONT magazine.
3- Being recognized at work for hand-selling 100 copies of one of my favorite books, The Maze Runner, in under 3 months!
4- Sitting down and making tentative plans for Europe this summer with one of my best friends
5- Spontaneously buying Harry Potter Scene It and playing an epic first game with friends
6- Dinner with my Greece girls for the first time in months. We celebrated a birthday & talked for HOURS. It was great! ❤
7- Despite a rocky start to my day, I still had the chance to have a phone interview with Katie from the Ting Tings. What a sweet artist!
8- Easter dinner at my house, and seeing my nephew eat cereal for the first time. Hilarity ensues!
9- One of my favorite summer shows, The Big C, started back up today. I didn’t even know, hurray!
10- Babysitting my nephew ALL BY MYSELF for the very first time for 3 hours. Verdict: huge success!
11- Interview with the extremely talented Of Monsters and Men, watching their sound check, and overall being so ecstatic to interview one of my current favorite bands.
12- My obsession with the Starbucks Caramel Frappucino begins. It might be my favorite obsession so far!
13- I am offered the position of VP Public Relations for a charity organization at my school. Yay!
14- Spontaneous dinner at my brother’s house, followed by a couple glasses of my sister-in-law’s extremely famous sangria. Juuuuuuust what I needed tonight.
15- Finished the book ‘Fever’ by Lauren DeStefano. Probably one of my current favorite dystopian series, SO GOOD.
16- Interview with Nathan from Snow Patrol, followed by the Ed Sheeran/Snow Patrol concert. AMAZING!!
17- Got to catch up with one of my favorite long distance friends, Laura, and realized that despite her being half a country away she still totally gets me. Harry Potter metaphors and all. ❤
18- TODAY WAS MY NEPHEW’S FIRST HALF BIRTHDAY! I am also free from my Introduction to Management class… Forever!

20- New book day- Picked up a few classics at work & the new Marie-Claire with Zooey Deschanel on the cover. I love new book days 🙂

22- Cirque du Soleil AMALUNA with my mom- what a fun experience, despite the extremely cold temps!

28- The sun finally makes an appearance after a straight week of rain! Hurray! Also up to season 3 of Community, my latest TV obsession.
29- Zumba class in the morning, followed by brunch with two of my favorite ladies. Much later in the evening there was some skyping with my nephew after what seems like a LONG time of not seeing him, and an awesome chat with the ladies of Twookclub (Twitter book club!) All in all a really great day!
30- Overall a nice morning off, a good shift at work, and some snuggling time with the puppies before bed 🙂
How was your month of April? What little moments are you thankful for?
