A Month in Reviews -- March

March is a great month, typically. It has the first spring holiday (St. Patrick's Day) even though, technically, it's the last winter holiday. But in my mind it's more spring-oriented with all the clover and green. Most of the time we end up getting nice weather for St. Patrick's Day as well, so that's always a plus. Winter becomes something of a memory and I'm giddy to wear green and eat soda bread. But the spring-feel (plus the actual arrival of spring) wasn't understood by all and we ended up getting the most snow of this winter during the month!

March was introduced with a snowstorm and then, slowly, it became warmer and I was able to go hiking in a tank-top and capris. It was wonderful and nature agreed. Crocus bloomed, the trees budded, and robins were happily digging for worms. Then it snowed again -- on the first official day of spring. 

But winter was slowly slinking off to hide until the end of the year and the first big sign of this was that I had my first full week of work at my office since December! The warmer days are starting to outnumber the cold days and I am confident that soon enough I'll be complaining about the heat and humidity. Just last week we had nearly 80-degree temperatures and ridiculous humidity, followed by our first thunderstorm, so summer isn't far away.

This month was also busy as I worked on a big release at my job and finished up a copyediting course I was taking. Let me tell you, editing documents from 7:30 in the morning until 9 at night, with breaks only being to drive and eat, is exhausting.

Copyediting final and cats.

With the class taken care of, I finally had a chance to pleasure read without feeling guilty, and better yet--I was able to write blog posts again! April will be a month spent catching up.

  • For Wanderlust Wednesday we visited the city of San Francisco and got some coffee from Caffee Triste--my favorite coffee spot while I was in San Francisco in October. Believe me when I say that once I'm back in that city, it'll be one of the first places I go to eat breakfast.
  • I discussed my goals for the next year and a half while I head toward the ripe, old age of thirty.
  • We visited California and the San Francisco Bay area for a peek at Ashley's reading nook. Complete with comfy pillows and cuddly cats. I can verify that the cats are cuddly as I've met them and cuddled with them until they found their food dishes more interesting.
  • The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge for all of those die-hard readers and Gilmore Girls fans out there.

A lot has gone on around the web, much of it I didn't have the chance to capture by means of sharing links, but here are some highlights from the past month!
