Well, what do you know… We are in the THIRD month of the year already. It becomes less and less surprising how quickly both the beginning and the end of the year seem to roll by quicker than we can imagine. I presume that this is due to the fact that we start our year gearing up for a big trip (during our month long winter vacation). The last three months flow by in a flash for obvious reasons – Halloween, Fall festivities, and then Christmas and New Year.
This isn’t really a month to be remembered for much – there are no big holidays or events, BUT it is my birthday month. So that is pretty exciting. Being a St. Patrick’s Day baby – and seeing that my birthday is on a Friday this year – there’s a good chance that it will be a fun one!
What have we been up to in March during previous years?
2013. Lots of fun in South Africa after our wedding: Sea Point Getaway: Honeymoon Part 1 and Part 2. We GOT MARRIED – for a second time, and then put on our wedding clothes and did a Trash the Dress photo shoot on a tiny secluded beach. Sunset, champagne, and a cute fluffy puppy – wow, what a great day! We drank copious amounts of wine in March of 2013: KWV Biltong, Nuts and Wine Pairing, Meerendal, Nitida, Hillcrest, and Altydgedacht Wine Estate all come to mind — although there might have been more! We swam at the West Coast National Park, Hiked Lion’s Head, and watched Sunset from Lovers Lane.
2014. A quick trip to Beijing, sweet packages from abroad and continued to marvel at the miracle of my growing belly! We entered the Third Trimester with (unborn) Eli, and went to Le Meridien for a delicious Birthday Buffet!
2015. We were back in South Africa, and soaking up the sun by the pool! When we got back to China, Eli entered the “danger zone” when he started to lift himself onto everything and often fall over. We enjoyed our weekly lunch dates with daddy, and even a couple with friends. For Easter lunch we joined the Clarks and Klugs at The Hilton, and took part in March Mischief where the : Toys Come Alive.
2016. Last March was probably our quietest one to date! We had just arrived back from our Bali break, and we didn’t have much going on. Eli did a few model jobs, and we attended some birthday parties. My birthday was a bit of a flop last year, so we did a redo!
2017…. What will March of 2017 hold for us?
WE SHALL SEE!
Happy March Everyone!
Let’s make it one to remember.
What are your plans for the new month?
