Everyday Erica. Everyday Life. Everyday Adventures. Homepage

Everyday Erica is a space where I can be creative and share my recipes, travels, fitness ventures, and overall life experiences with the ones I love. I currently live Denver and enjoy all the things the mountains and city have to offer. I'm a planner who has learned you can't plan for life, so I'm going to enjoy the ride while I've got this chance. 

April Life.

April Life and Adventures

April is a wild child in Denver. It rains, thunder storms, snows. We can have hurricane style winds and you can be at the park the next day. I took some time to try and slow down in April. I got sick at the very beginning of the month, so that helped - I guess. I did some hiking this month, took a few short bike rides to get my butt revved up for the summer. My softball team is going strong and I feel like I'm getting better(ish) every week. I've been playing catcher, which takes me way back to third grade when I played in Port Salerno on a team called the Beadnicks. O caught a ball with my forehead once and had the ball's stitched imprinted into my head. Ha! Hopefully I'll remember to catch all these balls in my glove, not my face. That sounded weird...no catching balls with my face. Mkkkay. Oh good times...

Any way, Here is a little more about April. Cheers and happy May!

Self care baths with chamomile, eucalyptus, and lavender. I stayed in this for almost an hour.

Smoothie bowls were my jam this month. The trick - add in some steamed and frozen cauliflower. There is no taste to it, it adds good veggies, and it makes it thick as hell.

Spring comes and snacks change. Fresh radishes on fresh bread with butter and salt. I could eat it all day.

I have gotten back into swimming this month and it makes me so incredibly happy.
