It’s now March…..wow, time sure flies! Did you know that in the original Roman Calendar, March was the 1st month of the year until Julius Caesar reformed it? I didn’t, until today!
A lot of people will be celebrating Spring Break this month…at least, people in the South. I don’t really have any Spring Break plans….probably because my life isn’t interesting enough. I have a niece getting married this month though. I am so excited for her! Just wish I could be closer so I could give her a hug and wish her good luck in her future. I’m crossing my fingers that I will get to be there for her official wedding ceremony in December, though.
I feel like I have a different relationship with my nieces than most aunts seem to. At least the nieces I had before I got married. I guess a lot of it has to do with our ages, but some of it also could be I lived with some of my nieces for many years, off and on. It almost feels like they are the sisters I never had. I have two sisters but one is 16 yrs. older than me and the other, 20 yrs. older. I always longed for a younger sister or at least one closer to my age. You know, for the times when you wanted to play a board game and your parents are busy. Having all my siblings so much older than me almost felt like being an only child at times. You just want a playmate. So in some ways, my nieces feel like younger sisters to me that I care about and want to look after. I just don’t get to see them as much as I want.
Anyways, here’s to another month of blogging and keeping up with my challenge! If you have Spring Break plans, good luck with them and good luck to my niece Lydia as she takes a huge step in her life this month and becomes a wife! I love you so much, girl and I wish you and Dru the best of luck in your future!
