Whew! March was certainly a FUN month!
We celebrated Lorelei’s birthday on that first Sunday. She was so cute in a purple vest I made for her! She was a bit overwhelmed by the crowd that is our family now, but she enjoyed herself!
Next it was my birthday and I am now well firmly placed in my 30’s. Jason’s sisters and significant others came over for drinks and board games and I have to say, it has been one of my best birthdays thus far. We had a hilarious time!
This month we watched Spring begin and went on our first hike, where we saw a bear cub! So cute! We also planted some beautiful (hopefully!) flowers and anticipate starting a garden very soon.
On the 27th we celebrated our second wedding anniversary. It seems like much longer, but in a good way. I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to have such an amazing husband! We left all three kiddos with Nana and Papa and set out for Asheville. We wandered the mall, Target and ate at Carrabba’s and it was worth the three hours round trip, ya’ll. Chicken Bryan! I took the rest home and ate it for lunch the next day! lol It was so nice to spend some quality time with just Jason and I together.
This month I’ve also realized that Lorelei is old enough and I am to a point in my stay-at-home period that I need to take some time for myself. One Saturday I went and saw Hunger Games at our adorable little theater. It was such a good movie! The following weekend, Noah had a boyscout thing and Jason took all three kids with him while I went to the library- by myself! I came home with an ARMLOAD of books! I didn’t go ANYWHERE NEAR the children’s section! lol It was wonderful! I found a couple of great books centered around Buddhism. One is called How to Expand Love by the Dalai Lama and another is titled Anger, Wisdom for Cooling the Flames by Thich Nhat Hanh. Ha! I have no idea how to pronounce that. I’m really looking forward to diving into these. Jason has been so sweet to give me time to refresh away from the kiddos. For whatever reason it is hard to take the time, but the rewards of that time away benefit the whole family.
For Lorelei’s birthday we got her a sandbox. At first she was a little leery of it, but now she just plops right in and begins to munch and dig. :o) We spend quite a lot of time out on our porch playing and Noah and Nora ride their bikes or the razor. We enjoy the fresh smells of Spring and the warmer weather so much.
I have been thinking about going back to school in the fall. I’d like to get my B.A., but am seriously contemplating a degree in Web Design. I’ve been playing around with Gimp and really enjoy it.
I’ve also started another blog. It has been in the works for some time and just this month I let’er rip! I enjoy writing this different kind of blog and I will also continue my monthly updates here. If you’d like you can check it out here.
Until next month!
