March is one of my favorite months for 3 reasons.  

1. It's starting to get warmer.  Even though this year has been a little off, usually in North Carolina it's in the 60s with a few days in the 70s.  I am so looking forward to having consistently warm weather - today is beautiful.  Sunny and 68.  

2. St. Patrick's Day!!  I looove St. Patty's day and I am a good bit Irish.  My great great grandfather immigrated here from Ireland at the age of 12 all by himself!  Yesterday I went to class and then at 2 met Kim and her boyfriend out at the Irish pub downtown, which was having a HUUUGE celebration with contests, games, concerts, giveaways, etc.  We had fun and then left around 6 and went to practice.  After practice, we went back out until around 11.  It was really, really fun!!  I love to see all of the people out, and I looove bagpipes (despite my dislike of loud noises!) 

Note the Green beverage!

3. Lastly, I love March because of MARCH MADNESS!  We were driving back to Greensboro on Sunday when the NCAA selections were made, and I couldn't wait to get home and print out my bracket and fill it out!!  When I was in 5th grade we filled out brackets because my teacher was a big basketball fan.  And I came in 2nd!  (My dad helped me a little..haha)  I don't want to jinx myself, because I'm in a pool with some friends this year, but I'll update as it goes :-)

That's about it for now.  Good Weather, Good Holiday, Good Sports ... ahh Good Month!

I'm slightly jealous of the warmer weather you are having! I can't wait for it to be warm!

Sounds like a fun St. Patrick's Day!

and YAY! for March Madness!

It's good to add more positives to my March list b/c it's my least favorite month. :p

I do love Ireland though. I lived in Belfast for a year and it's still my favorite city. Ever!

As for the March Madness- I have to say, I have no idea what it even is. Yeah, I'm all sorts of nerdy. :p

PS- I now know what March Madness is. I'm rooting for UNC.

I'm not sure I can say I have an absolute favorite but I my top favorites are: Real Hero, Before Dawn, Bittersweet, and Landscape of the Heart. I'm still trying to put Words of Comfort into practice.

I do get the daily emails. They're the best way to start the day. :o)
