march 2018//

Oh March, what an incredible adventure you were. I got a little behind with sharing a full recap of you, but thankfully I finally had some time to sit down this past weekend and organize a few photos...ok a lot of photos.

6 states. 7 flights. 30 miles hiked. And the list goes on....
March really was the busiest month!  

Started the month with the best visitor thanks to Husband being in town. Tom came for a visit at the end of February and decided to extend his trip and stay a bit longer. I cannot wait for this long distance part of our marriage to be over. But for now, I am grateful that he was here for the first week of March! I got to be with both my boys...who love their naps 😴 for a whole extra week.

The highlight of the month was definitely heading off to the West Coast for Spring Break with the Husband.

But there is no so such thing as a true break when you're in grad school, so I studied at the airport and on the plane during our long travel days.

We spent 8 days road-tripping through Arizona, California, and Nevada.

And I love that we got the best taste of West Coast History between finding abandoned Gold Mines

watching sunsets out west is so beautiful, but so sad because it means the day has come to an end

Can't think of a better way to see a new place than by bike. And biking in pretty Palm Springs did not disappoint.

And because I didn't get my full share of desert cacti from our hikes, we visited the best cacti botanical garden-The Cactarium

Kicking it in the never-ending salt flats

Then finally back home to the East Coast

to reunite with this cute puppy.
I finished making my first denture for a patient.
 Then, I spent the rest of the month cramming in as much studying as possible.
We ended March and kicked off April on the best note with a trip to New Orleans

See what I mean when I said this month was busy and full of adventure? I love months like March that seem to have just the right dose of traveling and time spent with my husband balanced out with grad school so well.
