Reasons I Love March

March is a glorious month. It brings about the end of winter and longer days, not to mention some other special days. Here is a short list of reasons as to why I love March so much.

+ More sunshine, and less rainy days.
+ Don’t forget to set your clocks on March 9th, as it’s time to “spring forward” for Daylight Savings Time!
+ March 13th brings Popcorn Lover’s Day – time for all sorts of yummy popcorn deliciousness.
+ The Veronica Mars movie releases on March 14th and I for one am ridiculously excited for this movie!
+ St. Patrick’s Day arrives on March 17th, and for the first time ever, I’m planning on going out with some friends to indulge in green beer and snappy Irish tunes.
+ The Vernal Equinox (also known as Spring or Ostara for anyone of the Pagan persuasion) arrives on March 20th, bringing longer daylight hours with it!
+ Also on March 20th is Macaron Day! My plan is to head out to Seattle on this beautiful first day of Spring, and pick up some delicate, delicious macarons.
+ Fragrance Day falls on March 21st – time to break out those new perfumes you’ve never worn!
+ And finally, the perfect way to bring March to close is with “Take a Walk in the Park” Day on March 30th!

How Sweet It Is #1

I’m always telling my friends how it’s the little things in life that truly make me happy and give me the most enjoyment. I definitely need to start focusing on the positive things in my life, so I’ve started to chronicle the things that make me smile or bring me joy, each week.

01) Officially being taken out of the deli department and transferred into bakery, like I have wanted.
02) Getting my first raise since starting my new job.
03) Finding out that something I had believed, was actually right – even if someone else refuses to see it.
04) Removing negative people from my life, once and for all – it feels fantastic.
05) Taking charge and talking to someone I once thought destroyed me. It shook me up for a couple days, but certainly helped.
06) Tickle fights and private jokes with a close friend.
07) Being with my friends on a Friday night.
08) Whiskey Sours <3
09) Discovering the amazingness of flat-out wraps.
10) Forcing myself to try and walk 10k steps a day – and loving it.
11) Library books make me ridiculously happy.
12) Rewatching Veronica Mars in preparation for the movie.
13) Finally getting a chance to watch movies with D.
14) Tipsy sing-a-longs with Trouble, J and Blondie.
15) Twitchy and Squeakers <3
16) Seeing Ben as often as I possibly can.
17) Cuddling with my cat Orion after a long day at work.
18) My brand new phone. Holy moly, I love the S4.
19) Realizing that I have feelings for someone, which means I truly am moving on.
