According to the powers that be it's now autumn. We all know that autumn doesn't actually start until around 21 March, but because we Aussies need to keep life simple, we just commence our seasons on the first of the month and be done with it.
Which is why 1 March may not actually feel very autumnish. What it does mean though, is that it's getting close. Very very close.
So, 1 March signals autumn and it also means it's World Compliments Day (thanks for the heads up on that one Middle Aged Mama).
Which got me to thinking about the rest of March and all the things there is to love about life.
For my fam there are a few things to look forward to. The model daughter heads to Hong Kong for a few days with her grandparents to visit my cousin. My boy actually gets a month off soccer as he's graduated from Coerver Academy, finished indoor and is currently between seasons. My book release party is in a couple of weeks. The hubster celebrates his birthday.
For Canberra it also means it's festival time. March is Canberra's birthday month and in true capital city style, we celebrate in a big way with the Enlighten Festival this weekend, a long weekend the following weekend and then Skyfire the weekend after.
The big grown up step daughter commences treatment this month for yet another sarcoma, and while that may not seem like something to look forward to, from her point of view she's just damn happy to get the whole thing started given it was diagnosed back in January.
As far as junkets are concerned we don't have a lot of travel planned for this month, other than a few days at the coast for the Canberra Day long weekend (weather permitting) and the odd picnic or art gallery visit.
What I'm loving the most about March is the sense of peace it's bringing me. Opening the diary to a relatively blank week means I can really concentrate on the things I want to achieve and have the odd cuppa with friends. It also means I can focus on my wellness and getting back to being fit and fabulous.
What does March mean for you?

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Deb for supporting the Lovin' Life concept and her Lovin' Life dedication over the past 4 months.
