Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2017


This has been slightly waylaid by silly things like a cold and a basketball championship, but happy April, y’all! The April showers are in full effect here, and the aforementioned silly things have seriously undermined the beginning of Camp NaNoWriMo for me. Here’s hoping I can catch up. Anyway, March was a heck of a month in my life. Let’s get wrapping.

Last Month in My Life:

I had a birthday, and surprise of surprises, my amazing boyfriend drove 10 hours to spend my birthday weekend with me! I also got to see my folks, watch my lil’ brother play a college lacrosse game, and take my sweetheart to dinner with my extended family. Right after he went home was our two year anniversary. I also got cleared at work to handle my second raptor, an adorable screech owl named Otus. At the end of the month, though, my grandfather passed away. It was a long time coming, but it still sucks. What a month.
