As I worked to find my inspiration for this week’s blog I stumbled upon this website Holiday Insights that includes a listing an incredible number of holidays during the month of April! I had no idea!?! (And to think of all the cards I’ll need to start buying! And all the gifts I’ve missed out on!!) 

If you know me at all, you will find this post to be most fitting as you are aware of  my love and desire to share useless information and factoids about who knows what…and so I felt this post was most appropriate!
