February was a time for scary truth telling and sitting with my own thoughts, but March was a time for doing. I worked and played this month until I almost dropped. literally. I am literally exhausted as I write this (but in the most content way possible).
March, you were glorious. If this month is any indication of what amazing things 2013 has in store for me, it’s going to be an incredible year.
Let me just show you. Here’s looking at you March:
1/ Linens N Things Market Umbrella (to go with the outdoor furniture we haven’t picked out but desperately need) | 2 / Gap Leather Tote (because neon tote!) | 3 / Wayfair Large Andre Vase (I would love to add this piece to my buffet) | 4 /Clarisonic Cleansing System (my friends rave about this thing) | 5 / Ombre Votive Candles (you can never have too many of these) | 6 / Stella & Dot Foundation bracelet (dainty. lovely. I’m in)| 7 / Joe’s Kitty flats via Piperlime (yes please) |
In addition to Part II of my book list, I also had the awesome opportunity to take a Go Mighty Life List Class where I revamped my life list (also known as Aurora). Inspired by the class, I also wrote my very own Life Manifesto to help keep me focused on my true priorities. My Life Manifesto really means a lot to me, and I know I will continue to turn to it. While focusing on listing this month, I also started working on a few new lists (such as my favorite SF spots) that I’m excited to share with you all soon.
I am literally about 50 pages away from finishing this fascinating and extremely intelligent novel: The Secret History. I have been sucked in by this twisted murder mystery meets Dead Poets society with roller coaster moments of boredom and extreme captivation. Even without finishing the story, I can confidently tell you that I would highly recommend it.
We also decided to throw our version of a French picnic, because why not?
I am so in love with the little DIY tea box I made this month:
One of my favorite projects from this month was joining together with my new friend Researching San Diego to conquer sock knitting in our newly formed #knittingclub. You can follow our progress from the beginning here on Instagram. It was quite an undertaking, but we did it!
Here’s my one sock:
Not too shabby, eh?
I had to play catchup a few times, but I still love Fat Mum Slim’s photo a day project. It really challenges me to try to take more creative pictures. Although I take lots of photos for the blog, those photos are more typical and planned. The photo a day pictures force me to challenge myself to meet the prompt with just my phone, whatever is around me, and a bit of innovation. Are you on instagram? Follow me, so I can see your photos.
Thanks for reading and for helping me to mark these golden days and golden months.
I am grateful that you’re here.
See you in April!
