We have big hopes for all the things that can happen in a year, don't we? So big, in fact, that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. This blog is about keeping things simple and fun, sharing tools for getting stuff done, and learning how to balance it all...calmly. Because you know what? Life doesn't have to be crazy to count.

Check out the categories below for ideas and inspiration. We're focusing on a different one each month!

April: Easter + Getting Ready for Spring

April Fool’s Day / Weekend Links

I nearly forgot that April Fool’s Day is this Sunday! Does your household like to play tricks? I’m a ridiculously gullible person, so I make a great target. For example, yesterday on Facebook a friend posted that “if you say ‘gullible’ slowly  it sounds like ‘oranges’.” And I actually tried it!

If you’d like to get creative for April Fool’s Day, you could surprise someone with this personalized jack-in-the-box (spotted on Say Yes to Hoboken). It appears to be a sweet little gift but then launches confetti at the unsuspecting recipient. (The secret is simple spring technology.)

Do you have fun plans for the weekend? We’re still enjoying unusually warm weather. Every day we check the status of our daffodils and tulips; they’re just starting to poke through the ground.

Right now we’re off to the school carnival, and then I’m hoping for a fairly mellow weekend with lots of time to relax and do some Easter decorating and projects. And a few April Fool’s Day tricks, too. Hope to see you back on Monday!
