It’s April 1st, which means my family has completed our own version of March madness. Our celebratory streak is finished, for now.
The celebrations started back in February when both my dad and my husband celebrated birthdays (my dad turned 69, my husband 39). My husband and I also celebrated our wedding anniversary (our 16th) on Valentine’s Day.
But it’s March, that’s really the heavy-duty month for our family. We began the month with my husband and I celebrating the 18 year anniversary of our first date on the same day that served as the two-year mark for when I left my teaching career. (Here’s a link to a blog post I wrote shortly after I left teaching: http://wendykennar.blogspot.com/2013/03/march-1st.html) We’ve celebrated my birthday (my39th), and three days later, my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary.
And then there’s the end of the month, March 30th. On that same day, my mom celebrated her 70th birthday while my son celebrated his 7th! It was magical and miraculous. Exhilarating and exhausting.
It was a momentous March!
