Happy weekend, hello April and welcome to the Saturday Spotlight! Each week, I like to focus on a different theme or topic to inspire you. Now that April has arrived, I’m going to highlight some fresh ideas for the home and all things spring! Don’t worry, I won’t pull any April Fools Day shenanigans on you! Enjoy all the inspiration for this new month!

Hello April Pictures that Capture the Month:
April is Tulip Season:
What captures the essence of April better than tulips? Each April, I try to visit an annual tulip festival in New Jersey. You can read all about my visit here – Largest Tulips Festival on the East Coast. If you have a tulip festival near you, definitely try to go. It’s such a wonderful way to welcome the spring season!
Whenever I look at photos from that trip, I think about framing a few. Wouldn’t they look pretty on a spring gallery wall? Maybe I’ll even change my computer screen to an April background with one!
April is also a great month to travel with family:
Depending on where you travel, mid April is considered off-season in some areas. Whenever our kids’ spring breaks would fall in April, we’d get great deals on Caribbean travel. So, if you’re looking for a place to spend the April holidays, definitely look into some of the islands.
Seriously, can you think of a prettier view for the month of April? In case you’re wondering, I took this photo on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman. If you want to read more about that April vacation, see – Beautiful Grand Cayman.
