Hello March!

I generally like the month of March.

My birthday is in March, and I still like birthdays!

If you live in northeast Ohio, you know that March is a pretty bi-polar month. Sometimes it’s frigid and snowy, other years it’s practically summer and yet other years this month covers the entire weather spectrum. Regardless of how the weather actually behaves at any given time, March holds out hope for spring, sunshine and longer days.

So far, we’ve had a busy March… and it’s only the 4th!

This weekend, we celebrated several birthdays including our own. Next weekend is all about me and my birthday! Even though being born on the 8th means I was a winter baby, I still feel like my birthday means Spring.

Aside from birthdays, March is full of holidays, this year especially!

Happy National Grammar Day!

Starting with today, National Grammar Day! In honor of National Grammar Day, think about the grammar problem you have most often, then make a conscious effort to fix it.

In March we’ll also celebrate:

  • March 14th is Pi Day, another nerdy holiday but is often celebrated with tasty dessert. Why Pi Day? It’s 3.14
  • St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th and everything green that comes with it!
  • The first official day of spring
  • Easter and all of the surrounding observances

I have lots of fun things happening including a work cupcake event and a product launch.

Happy almost spring friends! What are you looking forward to this month?

Holiday Love/Hate

There’s just something about the holiday season that seems… magical I guess. But every year there are things that raise the stress levels to the max that result in a love/hate relationship with the season.

Love

1. Decorations. Everything looks so pretty during the holidays and as outside gets dull and dark the color and sparkle that comes along with the decorations we put up are very welcome.

2. Seasonal smells and tastes. There are some candles that can only be burned this time of year just like there are some treats that can only be baked this time of year.

3. Anticipation. I feel like there’s so much to look forward to for each celebration.

4. Time with family. There’s a huge family focus on the holidays and I can’t say I’d have it any other way.

5. Rest. I feel like we get a much-needed break at the holidays then a fresh start for a new year.

Hate

1. Travel. Teleportation would be a welcome development to ease holiday travel. Driving here, there and everywhere can be exhausting and expensive. Thankfully, we don’t have to fly for holiday visiting.

2. Scheduling. It’s tough to balance when to see people, trying to equitably split time with each side of the family is absolutely impossible. Not to mention trying to see friends too.

3. Crowds. There are at least twice as many people at stores and restaurants this time of year. I don’t know where they call come from!

4. Traffic. This is indirectly related to travel and crowds. Not only does it seem like there are more people on the road, driving skills and attention behind the wheel do down the toilet this time of year.

5.Cold. Snow and ice are pretty to look at, but I’m not a fan of anything else they bring with them. Once the holidays are over… we know that winter is going to be in full force.

What about you? Anything about this time of year that makes you love it, hate it, or both?

Summer in March

The crazy nice weather this winter has not gone unnoticed. I just can’t help myself but to talk about it.

For once, the weather is a legitimate conversation topic and not just small talk!

The past two weekends, Brad and I have enjoyed spending time outside and leaving our windows open. It’s still technically winter, but the temps are creeping into the upper 70s. I’ve actually worn shorts twice! We’ve already enjoyed a backyard barbeque with our friends.
