30 Things I’m Grateful For in April

This month, I celebrated six months of being in Connecticut, and my six-month work anniversary was in the middle of the month, which may not seem like a big deal, but I feel like I’ve grown so much since I moved here. I still get the question, So how do you like Connecticut?! And my answer has always been the same: I love it.
