As usual, March was a topsy turvy month of highs and lows, but I'm grateful for each and every day and love to stop and think about the simple pleasures that bring me joy.
Here's what had me smiling in March:
1st - I decided that I would like to be paid to write so I submitted a proposal to a couple of online news magazines. After several follow-ups, I have yet to hear anything, but it was a first step and I'm hopeful that something will come my way soon... Stay tuned!
2nd - Lunch with an old friend and an old haunt I used to frequent when I was a working woman.
3rd - Soup Plantation's grilled cheese bread dippers and creamy tomato soup and sharing them with someone who appreciates them just as much as I do. :)
4th - A girl's night out and discovering jalapeno cucumber margaritas. Yummy!!
5th - A baby shower. There's nothing like welcoming a new life with pretty little things.
6th - Crayons, Play-Doh, paint, trains, books, bubbles ANYTHING to keep the little guy busy and entertained.
7th - My sister turned 27!
8th - Sitter days.... ah.
9th - Getting in the car and turning on the radio to Dave Matthews. Twice!!
10th - Good news, bad news and more confusion... sometimes it's what makes the world go round.
11th - Discovering a new kid friendly pizza place.
12th - Five loads of laundry DONE... until the next time.
13th - A visit to LA to celebrate aunt Leah's birthday.
14th - A very productive day of phone calls, appointment setting and follow ups.
15th - Making it through a lunch without divulging a surprise.
16th - Lucas pushed the kid-sized shopping cart at the super market today and although he nearly plowed over three people and almost knocked over an entire display of potatoes, he loved every minute.
