Good morning, sweet friend! I am so glad you are having “coffee” with me today!
It’s chilly here in Colorado. The sky is gray and there is a mist in the air. My morning coffee is quite comforting.
In case you missed it, I have changed my newsletter name to “Coffee with April Colleen” so you can always have a friend to sit down, have a cup of coffee, and catch up with! Or tea, or protein shake, lol!
It doesn’t matter, let’s catch up!
Whew, this has been a busy season in my life, how about you?
I always love back-to-school season. There is just such excitement in the air, even if you don’t have kids or they aren’t at home anymore. It means the weather is about to turn and Fall and football is fast approaching.
I just sent my last baby of 4 off to college and my house feels so different now. I still have one child who lives at home but he just drives to his classes every day, so we aren’t completely empty nesters. But having my baby girl gone is so strange. And I miss her.
I miss being a mom. I know I am still a mom, but raising kids was my greatest joy and being a mom will just look a little different from now on. And that tugs at my heart….a lot.
Today we are seeing the musical “Jagged Little Pill”. Have you seen it? Did you love it?

Wait for it, my master closet is finished!!! (Cue the fireworks!!) It has taken me a long time to finish it. I have had many, many roadblocks that I didn’t know were going to keep me from finishing it and I am SO happy it’s done! Literal tears of joy.
You can see where it started here.
