Oh, Spring, we’ve missed you most of all. We don’t even care that you bring showers—we’re just excited to be outside again. There’s lots more to be happy about in April, too, so it’s time to turn the calendar page (or click the little arrow on your screen) and start thinking about what and who we’re celebrating this month.

Haiku Poetry Day
- Haiku poems originated in Japan. In English, the format is three lines and 17 syllables long: First line is five syllables, then seven, then five. No rhyming necessary. Haiku traditionally are about nature or seasons—they’re written in present tense and capture a moment.
- For fun, write some haiku of your own today: Write in your journal, send some to a friend or, for extra fun, send all your work emails haiku-style. (It’s fun. We’ve tried it.)

Speaking of April showers, let’s talk about our favorite kind: A card shower is a sweet way to flood someone’s mailbox with cards and postcards and letters. Learn how easy it is to throw a card shower.
Feeling too far away from a bestie, a sibling, a niece or nephew or someone else you care about? Wrap up all that love and send a personal, meaningful birthday care package.
These would be perfect for a llama-themed birthday party. But they’re as easy as they are cute, so don’t wait for a special occasion to make your own Llovely Llama cupcakes.
