Afterward a whirlwind of travel in March, I’m enjoying a more home-bound April.
- Lots of family time! My cousin is getting married in Pennsylvania at the end of the month, and it’s a great reason to get together with the Laffertys. I had fun exploring Philadelphia for her bachelorette party this weekend, and brunch at Harp & Crown was a perfect wrap-up. This has led to more plans for family get-togethers in 2017, like seeing Classic East in July!
- So much music. The month kicked off with a house concert hosted by a friend and I went to Blue Note to see jazz when Autumn was in town over Easter weekend. After a six-week hiatus, I’m back to guitar lessons. I’m learning Don’t Think Twice by Bob Dylan and Diamonds and Rust by Joan Baez.
- Continuing with the music theme, I will finally finish my listen of the first 50 albums on the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list from The Rolling Stone. I got James Brown’s ‘Live at the Apollo’ at the library this weekend since I couldn’t find it in full on any of my typical online music sources.
- Starting – but not finishing – lots of books. If I complete the books I’m currently reading, I’ll exceed my reading goal for the year. I’m reading tons of founder bios lately and really enjoying them.
In the meantime, I’m also working on some longer-term projects that will hopefully come to fruition in the next 3-5 months. Good start to the year!
