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!

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!

who will rescue you

IMG_1.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_4.jpgIMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpg IMG_8.jpgIMG_9.jpg IMG_10.jpgLast Sunday, one of our local animal rescue organizations hosted a St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser. They chose a greenhouse as their venue, and although they were mostly confined to the lobby, with the amount of dogs and foster parents that were present they ended up taking over the entire building. My husband and I were skeptical about going, only because I have never been able to visit a shelter without leaving with a new family member. My own mother learned this the hard way when one act of volunteer work at the Humane Society turned into an adoption of a Saint Bernard named Dolly. I was worried that I was going to adopt a dog that day, while Geoffrey was worried that I was going to adopt a dog that day. Yet, we wanted to show our support for those animals that were looking for their forever homes. I put my own emotions aside for the afternoon, and we made our way over to the fundraiser.

What an amazing event. The volunteers had really put a lot of work into different ways to raise money for the organization. There were treats for humans and animals, merchandise, and a 50/50 draw. Each adoptable dog was dressed up in green and photographed individually for the website. The foster parents were all very friendly and encouraged you to ask about the available dogs even if you were not looking to adopt. The fact that the greenhouse also doubles as a pet store made it an even more fitting choice for a venue. My parents made it there before we did. Afterwards, my mum and I got to talk about which dogs we wanted to adopt. To my husband’s relief, we did walk away empty handed. I think the luck of the Irish was with him that day. He most definitely will not be so fortuitous the next time around.

To my wonderful readers, this is my early St. Patrick’s Day wish to you. I hope that you have a fantastically silly, hopelessly romantic, unique, inventive, and remarkable day. I know that we will.
