I wasn't sure what to write about, and for inspiration I went to my photos on my phone. It turned into an exercise in scrolling to previous years, specifically March. Here is a collection of observations from the past five years.
Here we have a trip to the zoo and a local garden. More specifically, it was one of my first outings with my first niece. Ivey was a few months old in the pictures. I am smiling so broadly, happy to have a little partner in adventure.
A long standing tradition for me in March is to travel and go out into nature. And no location is more visited than Hot Springs. I was drawn to the picture of me and my friends enjoying ice cream and also margaritas. Good food is also a must this time of year!
And then there was the year I couldn't go anywhere, but could still enjoy the simple things. I baked bread and decorated my car for a teacher parade through our local neighborhoods.
While I wasn't quite ready to travel the following year, I did get out again. This was a time to be outdoors and embracing the beautiful weather this time of year has to offer. I even found the slice I wrote from the pictures I took.
Last year I finally got to travel again. Not only did I see Ivey and her family (now including a second niece for me to love and adventure with), but we went on a family cruise together! The pictures remind me of my love of travel and all the places I have been and and have yet to go.
I can't wait to share the rest of March 2023 with you all.
I really love this looking back in time through the use of photos. We so easily forget small moments from each year and this is a way to relive them.ReplyDelete
I love the idea of looking back on 5 Marches. I like the way you carried the theme of travel through your slice.ReplyDelete
I kept wanting to sing "time marches on" while reading this. I love that you opened and closed with a picture of Ivey! Just think of the pictures of this March yet to come!ReplyDelete
This is so creative! I'm completely stealing this idea for a post later in the month too.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful format - and look at how much Ivey has grown. I just saw Elisabeth's version of this & now I plan to steal it, too!ReplyDelete
