March was a funny combination of incredible weather and all the colds we somehow managed to escape (for the most part, at least) earlier in the year. Everyone is mostly healthy now, and it is definitely easier to be sick when the sun is shining and temperatures are in the 70s than when there is ice everywhere! Warm weather made it easy to meet my March goal of spending a lot of time outdoors, and the kids spent a lot of time playing games I remember from my own childhood. I hosted a very fun blogger retreat, and taxes are filed. I didn’t finish the skirt, although it is close to being finished. The skirt body is sewn together, but it is supposed to have ruffles, which is a style I don’t normally wear or sew. And, I think, that fact has a lot to do with the skirt not being done, but I plan to finish it in the next day or two. My email boxes didn’t get cleared out much, but I did at least manage to maintain the status quo.
- Enjoy Emma and Johnny’s spring break. Theme: gratitude
- Spend as much time outdoors as possible. Theme: responsibility and gratitude
- Take more pictures of the kids. My condo only has windows on the ends (and no sun-facing windows. That will be awesome when it gets hot since we don’t have air conditioning, but it’s not the best lighting for pictures. Still, I want to keep taking pictures of my kids, so I need to keep perfecting my low-light photography skills. I also want to get better at bringing my camera when we go places. Theme: gratitude and education
And, I think I’ll leave it at that, in honor of my simplicity theme.
