April Favorites – #FridayFive

april favorites

This month has felt like it would never end. It’s high stress time at work, plus my housing search…needless to say, I haven’t slept properly in what feels like weeks. However, it’s always possible to be grateful for and find at least five things you love in one thirty day period. Here’s to my April favorites!

Mom & Dad

God bless my parents. Through all of this house hunting nonsense, they’ve been there for me. They’ve been supportive and motivational and have kept me moving forward. Thank you, Mom and Dad. I don’t know what I’d do without you.

Avi Kaplan

This is actually a funny story. My niece is/was obsessed with Pentatonix. We would have their YouTube channel or Spotify playlists on repeat. I was listening to my Discover Weekly playlist one day when this song came on. The singer had a pretty sexy voice, and it’s a great song. I added it to my personal playlist, and, of course, followed Avi Kaplan on Instagram.

It took me until later that week when I was scrolling through Instagram that I liked a photo and did a double take. Lo and behold. Mr. Avi Kaplan (still sexy) is a former Pentatonix member. I cannot wait to hear the rest of his album, and I hope he decides to tour into Atlanta!


It was one of my Lenten goals to spend time with my bible every day. Instead of scrolling through Pinterest to find good bible quotes or just flipping through aimlessly, I busted out a devotional I haven’t read in a while. It has been a lifesaver! It really has been speaking directly to my soul.


Yes, this is a ridiculous thing to love because it’s been around for so long, but I have spurts of my love for Pinterest. When it comes to housing decor and organization, I am loving it! Maybe I’ll have a Pinterest-worthy house one day.

Oil & Marble

Oil and Marble by Stephanie Storey is our next book club pick. I strongly advocated for this one because it follows Michaelangelo and da Vinci in their prime while living in Florence. The heart of the story is Michaelangelo as he’s carving David. We all know that I love historical fiction, and this did not disappoint. Full review coming VERY soon.

Here’s to hoping that the next #FridayFive includes all of the things I love about my new home! Cross your fingers for me!
