Happy March :)

Can you believe it's March already?? There is something about the new month that excites me. A new calender page without the scribbled appointments. Thirty-one days to make memories, complete projects and get things done. A new season to welcome with new traditions to start with the kids. I love it all! I always sit down and map out my goals at the beginning of each month. I may have went a little overboard for March, since my list of goals and appointments spilled over to two pages. (I blame this on the addition of a "Pinterest" column!) Here is my March 2012 goal list:
