This March



The gardens began to come back to life as pretty flowers started to poke up through the ground.

We continued to eat healthy veggie meals. It won't be long before we are eating veggies from our own garden and I can't wait.

Aldi randomly stocked some sewing machines on the same day I got the desire to start sewing, so I snatched one up and have been working on all kinds of sewing projects.

We picked out this beauty tree for our backyard.

My mom had us over for an Easter brunch and it was a lot of fun. I loved her table decor!

And here is a look at my desk at my new job! I am so happy to finally have the job I dreamed about for years and I still can't believe I am finally working here. I am a manufacturing lab tech in the regenerative medicine department of a large university and medical school where my job is to grow human cells that will help regenerate damaged tissues or even regrow tissues completely. I am still very much in the learning phase which is pretty exhausting. I have so many new things to learn! But I am so relived that I have found my forever job and no longer have to be constantly updating my resume and looking for new jobs. That had been my life for the past few years and it was so tiring and depressing!

 It's hard to believe that exactly a year ago I was at a job that I hated so much and was suffering some terrible repetitive stress injuries from it (that I'm still recovering from!!) Last March I was not feeling optimistic about life at all and felt trapped. This just shows that a lot can change in a year, and I'm glad it changed for the better. 

March was a great month! The weather has warmed up, flowers are blooming, and the future is looking bright. Now we're on to April, which should be a very exciting month, we have a trip to Washington DC planned!

How was the month of March for you guys?

Like me, last year this time I was pregnant and had no idea what to do with life. This year I am a mother and I have my own company! Lucky us :)

  5. Yay for all the sunshine and new flowers for March! It was a little late here, but we've got the flowers now and it's great! It really sets up the rest of the year I think. So happy to hear you are enjoying your new job!

    Oh, I would love to eat my own veggies, but sadly I don't have a garden :( I hope you enjoy all yours when they are grown!

  6. Beautiful springtime is here full of new hope and you have a new job that you love. What a thrill! Glad there are so many positive things in your life now. All your hard work has paid off. You've created a nice home with a beautiful garden and are working on new projects with your sewing. Even in your job your creating. I'm happy the future looks good.

  7. What lovely Easter decor! I have a total soft spot for spring and Easter decorations. Aside from their own beauty and merits, I think that stems largely from the fact that with so few holidays after winter wraps up, it's just plain fun to keep things looking festive for as long as possible into the year.

    Many hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
