April 2015 Top 5 Posts & Updates

Happy end of April, dear reader!

It’s time for another monthly update and look at my top posts.

Running in a Skirt April Update

This month has been filled with all sorts of ups and downs.

I got to see my Dad and Brother in Charlotte, see pretty Biltmore flowers and do some really yummy cooking.

I even made a new video:


On the down side, it has been challenging to recover from losing our beloved Reina early this April.  As more time passes, it gets easier, but we will always miss her.  I wouldn’t trade the time we had with her for anything, but WOW is it hard when they die!  Dogs should live forever… I’m just sayin!

I’m actually sharing the most exciting thing that happened this month in a surprise post Monday!  Totally backwards, I know.  I’m sorry.  I can’t wait though!

So without further ado, here are the Top 5 Posts of the month!

April’s Top 5 Posts

1. Top Food Post

Pasta dishes are a hit!  My Healthier Creamy Pesto Pasta was the top food post.  It’s probably because this beautiful meal is made with only three ingredients.


Runner Up

My Pistachio Encrusted Salmon got lots of love from my fabulous bloggy friends, propelling it into a top spot.

    Can’t believe it’s already May! Looks like a great month of blogging for you – and I agree about dogs. Can’t they just live forever?

    I really love your food posts… how did I miss that Salmon, yum!

  6. Those were some of my faves too. Hope you are coming to peace with your loss of Reina. Hopefully expressing your feelings through writing helped you to process it.

  7. So glad you did this post! I missed a bunch of your posts when I was in Paris and now i can catch up on a few. That pistachio crusted salmon has me drooling right now!
