You went by relatively undocumented — and most of the photos I did take were of people. Gasp. I know! Actual people. My mom would be proud. But it also means most of the photos won’t make it to the blog. Oh well. It doesn’t hurt to step back and take a break sometimes. Even if that break came in the form of the flu.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
You were also the month of weekly meetings with friends to talk about life and… finances! Such a fun topic, but I think the financial class we all took to get better with our finances was helpful for all… as was our little support group to get through it.
In celebration of my nephew’s hockey team win and my niece’s entry into her dream high school (as well as a random day off of school) we went out for donuts. What’s a trip to Glam Doll Donuts without a photo? Even if the only clean table was placed just in the right spot to get a terrible photo thanks to the sun streaming through the window at just the right angle. But memories still need to be documented, even if the photo isn’t perfect, right? (The answer is right.)
A warm day (in the 40s in Minneapolis!) calls for a morning coffee date that turns into an afternoon iced tea date (outside) with a friend. (At Spyhouse, of course.)
Sorry for the blurry photo, but this little one got really sick one day. It was scary, but we got through it, and it was only a matter of time before she was up to her usual shenanigans.
Meeting up with other writers is always good for the soul. It can be so easy for creatives to shut themselves away in their homes and do their thing… after all, it’s usually a solitary act. We need to be intentional about finding community for the support, encouragement, advice, and camaraderie we can provide each other.
When girls night turns into book shopping: it’s a good or bad thing depending on who you ask. 😂 JK – it’s always a good thing. And I’m blessed with a great bestie who is willing to follow me through a bookstore, since it just happens to be right next door to our go-to Thai spot. (PS – in case you’re wondering, the bookstore is Magers & Quinn and our Thai spot is Amazing Thailand.)
Pet a Corgi day arrived and my sister, niece, and I attended. We waited for two hours before we were able to get into the corgi room for fifteen minutes. What was described as a place where “you’ll be covered in 20” was actually a room where we watched 20 corgis climb on each other and play, so it was a little anticlimactic. But they were adorable! Needless to say… I don’t see us doing this again, but it was a cute experience. Also, I was apparently on the news!
This little lady loves to sun herself.
I’ve always had a dream of filling a room with plants, just for the difference it makes in the air, so I found a bunch of plants that do well in drought conditions and thrive on neglect and got started!
You were also a month with lots of tummy rubs.
We had Holy Week and after an early Good Friday worship my dad and I stopped by Football Pizza to get… well, a football pizza. And it was delicious.
I ordered some tea from Whispering Pines and I haven’t tried any of it yet, but I’m excited to!
And the month ended with a spring snow… much to Mina’s delight!
Thank you, March, for a fun, but filled with rest (even if it was forced) month.
I'm Crystal, a storyteller who currently resides in the frozen tundra of Minneapolis with my sweet pup Little One. At Dreams, etc. you can find my musings about attempting (and sometimes failing) to incorporate daily creativity into the bustle, as well as the things and experiences that provide inspiration. I love gloomy weather, live on coffee and tea, and firmly believe in dancing in the rain... and the moonlight. Thanks for stopping by!
