Hi, I'm April and this is my website.
I can't remember the first time I sat down to write, whether it was in my journal, for school, or just simply for fun. I've pretty much written all my life, and when I first started this blog back in 2007 on Blogger, I didn't recognize it for the awesome writing outlet it would become. It began as a way to share photos with friends and family, but it has evolved into the most awesome community. Also? It has become my very favorite place to write.
A little about me:
I am obsessed with animals (no, really). I adore photography and sunsets (and I often mix the two). I crave adventure and time outdoors, and I think there is no problem the beach can't cure (except for cut-off, pinch-rolled denim...you're on your own with that one). I alternate between thinking I'm getting great at balance and that balance is a complete farce. I'm trying to live out loud (thanks, oxygen!), face the thing(s) I fear (if it's good enough for Eleanor R, it's good enough for me) and quite simply, just enjoy the ride (no shout outs necessary).
Join me, wont' you? And if you're so inclined, please say hello; I'm totally friendly. They grow us that way in the South. Boprilmail(at)gmail(dot)com is where you'll find me .
It began years ago as an adorable mispronunciation of my name by the world's cutest kid. Since then, its kind of stuck and spawned several different iterations including Bops, Boppies and the unfortunate Bop-bop. But now, its just catchy and unique - and totally me.
You'll likely read a lot about these characters so I thought it best to properly introduce you:
This is Hubby. He's a saint. He embarked on the wildest adventure in 2007 when he married me. You'll have to ask him if he regrets it. We get into as much trouble as possible in the Windy City.
These are our fur babies. No, they are not just dogs. They are babies. Of the fur variety. They're awesome and if you don't have fur kids of your own, I suggest that you remedy that. Immediately.
