One of the many things I associate with spring is the sound of birds chirping. This spring I purchased these super cute bird earrings from Lauren Conrad’s jewelry collection from Kohls. Everyone knows if you’re from the Northwest everything is better when you put a bird on it! They are my favorite earrings at the moment and on sale right now for only $5.99!

For about half of the month of March I was sick and during that time I was able to read this delightful book called Chasing Slow by Erin Loechner. She addresses the American cultures obsession with equating success with mass consumerism, accomplishments and money. Erin shares her own personal successes and failures.  It’s insanely relatable and Erin’s transparency is refreshing and encouraging.

March Mantra -Never Stop Growing

newlife

Spring is approaching and I cannot stop thinking about growth. New things springing up and coming about because of the changing of the season. At this time of year I feel like I’m coming out of hibernation. I start venturing out simply because it’s warmer. The spring season in my mind is like the second chapter to my year and new opportunities and ideas flourish at this time. In light of the new spring season ushering in growth I’ve decided that March’s mantra should be “never stop growing!” I pride myself on being a life-learner. I absolutely positively love to learn and try new things. In fact, this month I enrolled in a tap-dancing class! It’s always been one of my dreams and now I’m doing it. I’m also planning trips to new places and seeking out new experiences. I’m excited about what’s happening in my life and I attribute it solely to the fact that I remain curious about life and continue to grow and challenge myself. If you’re in a funk or are feeling uninspired, I encourage you to go somewhere new, read a book or take a class. I can tell you firsthand that these things will help you grow if you’re open to them.
