"March is a month of considerable frustration - it is so near spring and yet across a great deal
of the country the weather is still so violent and changeable that outdoor activity in our
yards seems light years away." - Thalassa Cruso
Oh how true this quote is. March is a great month filled with so many great things, St. Patricks Day, my birthday, various family birthdays, spring forward, spring solstice as well as national craft month (and various other month specific occasions).
However, it never seems to fail that on my birthday March 18th, we end up getting the last snow storm of the year. Their have only been perhaps two or three years I remember not seeing snow on my birthday. It's quite disappointing since my birthday is 3 days prior to the first day of spring. None the less this still means that spring is almost here and summer is right around the corner. Reagurdless of snow and coldness that March tends to start off with by the last few days we can normally see quite a change. Temperatures start to regulate themselves as it gets warmer and flowers start to bloom.
Then my brain instantly kicks into summer mode as I quickly forget about longing for spring. Summer is my favorite month, and Spring simply means that it is almost here. I'll soon be able to replace boots with flip-flops, and t-shirts with tank tops. Oh, how I look forward to days like these.
I also updated my Etsy Shop today with some lovely new spring pieces as well as a few traditional pieces. I also have 3 beautiful St. Patricks Day inspired key necklaces being featured at the moment.
