In honor of my first born, who will be 8 in just a few days (!), I thought I’d share some of the traits about babies born in the beautiful month of April.

In all honesty, my husband will suggest a name, and then I go ahead and shoot it down fairly quickly. No name is good enough, and I typically can find fault with even the most lovely of names. Yes, I’m extraordinarily picky and I know it.

Spring is finally here! The grass is turning green, the daffodils are starting to bloom, and the trees are budding with drops of pink and purple. My husband and I have been eagerly awaiting this season so we could get started on our garden. We live on a farm now, so we’ve got BIG plans for our garden – growing all kinds of veggies, herbs, fruits, and flowers. Some of my favorite baby names come from the garden. Names like Flora and Daphne are so sweet! Check out all of these baby names, inspired by your garden!
