in march

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.48.01 AMWelcome April, and my fellow April Fools!

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.49.50 AMMarch was a month of adventure. We only just began our vacation when the new month rolled around. Then we continued to spend the entire first week of March abroad in the United States! We had such an amazing and indescribable journey, and I tried my very best to supply you with daily updates through my Instagram photos. When we got back, I published this post describing the first half of our trip. The second post can be viewed here. Finally, this 9-minute video summed everything up in one musical notion.

stpatricksday3My St. Patrick’s Day craft post was a new direction for me. I loved being able to bring in ideas from other bloggers, and to have more than one DIY as well!

AloeVera1Next, I had an instructional post on propagating succulent leaves. After gathering tips from the internet, I felt as if I was ready to share that information with you. However, time will tell if my leaves will grow successfully!

ringI showed you items that I loved on Etsy, and items that were available in the Potomac Trading Post store.

IMG_1288In general, this was a month of reflection and soul-searching. Here, I began with recalling the times that I have experienced an act of generosity from a stranger, and discussed my own attempts to be a more selfless person. In this post, I expressed my views on our own generation-shaming. Looking back, I think our vacation played a big role in renewing my sense of self, which inevitably gave me a clearer perspective in regards to all things, both big and small.

_DSF1572Last, but not least, you were able to experience the second post in my Home series. This one featured two places by one man, both his lovely little house in Texas and his other home on the sea. This was such an inspiring collaboration, and one that I hope everyone enjoyed. I cannot wait for April’s home tour!

Do you have any plans for tonight? I think that I will watch one of the first scary movies that I ever saw when I was little girl; April Fools Day. Have an enjoyable day!

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 8.58.50 PMHellllooooo, March!

At times, when I write these monthly wrap-up posts, it feels as if I’m writing it from a third person perspective. So much takes place, which always varies greatly from the month before it, all while feeling like a lifetime ago. I always feel removed from the events after they occur. Does anyone else experience those same emotions when looking back on previous blog posts?

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 8.58.08 PMRegardless, February was short and sweet, just as I predicted. The only negative aspect about it was the drop in temperature. Repetitive mornings of -40°C are not fun!

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 9.01.55 PMLet’s begin with my favourite kinds of posts; DIYs. This Hearts and Stripes Pillow was incredibly useful and fun to make! It is also a great gift idea for any gender, and for any occasion.

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetI also made a simple, Canadian meal that can be seen here. It remains one of my go-to dishes when I’m not sure what to cook that day.

TheLittleBarn1Lastly, I showed you how to give the exterior of your home a facelift with Vintage Barn Lighting. I was also directed to some other great lighting companies in the comments section. Thank goodness for you, readers, and your input! I learn from you with each one of my posts.

Home Series 13Speaking of The Little Barn, I discussed the outcome of its beautiful Tongue and Groove Ceiling in this post. I had initially blogged about stain colours in December with Fifty Shades of Grey.

Home Series 3A few days ago, I not only published the first house in my Home series, but also gave an extensive house tour of The Little Barn!

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 8.57.30 PMI brought in a dash of culture with a Canadian music post (which this is clearly not a photo of).

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 9.04.21 AMWhile we’re on the Canadian train, I also enlisted your help in Choosing a National Bird for our great country! The comment section, again, was incredible! You guys were so helpful and informative. I loved it.

WIB 1-6I published two fashion posts. The first was what’s In The Store. The second was What I Bought.

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 presetIn regards to personal style, I also chopped my locks off again. I don’t feel like myself unless I have a pixie-esque ‘do. #shorthairdontcare

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 9.05.25 PMFinally, last, but certainly not least, I revealed to you that we were going on an American Road Trip for 8 days. We are currently on this holiday, and as I write this (only one day prior to leaving), I hope that we are enjoying ourselves. This post has by far received the most comments to date! I got so much amazing feedback from you, and we are trying our best to see all of the sites that you mentioned. So thank you!

Have a wonderful week, friends!
