Marching On

Good Evening!
This is going to be a longer post due to all my thoughts, not to mention pictures.
And I'm going to name them Part 1-3 to keep it better organize. There is a self portrait in the middle and a project at the end that I plan on beginning tomorrow.

Part 1: Aquarium

Yesterday, we took a trip down to the big city of Hotlanta to visit the Georgia Aquarium.
It was just as big and beautiful as everyone says. Oscar and I were blessed
to have Chad go with us since it was a work day.

It was very easy to navigate through the building, so if you were to get
claustrophobic getting in and out of an area was simple.

Oscar got his very first ride on a train, the Marta train, which was by-far the highlight of his day! If asked what his favorite fish was he says, "the train".

The Beluga whales were so amazing, gracefully gliding with their big, long, white bodies. Besides the whales, my favorite was the leopard whiprays. They were like water angels just soaring along the waters floor.

Another highlight of our day was having lunch at our favorite restaurant, La Sabrosita.

Shrimp Burritos, They are a bite of heaven wrapped up in a perfect hot spicy sauce, cheese and of course, shrimp. This is mine and Chad's favorite restaurant, La Sabrosita. (the place where Chad and I got engaged, it might have been the shrimp burritos that sold me!) I took a photo of our spread, I hope it shows how much we enjoyed our dinner.

Part 3: Feeding Your Soul

Sometimes it's hard to get your soul fed when you are feeding the souls of those around you. I know it can be like that for mamas and papas who stay home with their children, or even those who don't.

So, for the month of March I have given myself a project and you are more than welcome to play along.

We need to feed ourselves to be better people, to live better lives. We feed ourselves daily with good food, company, friends and family, water, tea, our children, pets, walks, nature, crafts, cooking, knitting, painting.

So lets take note of these things, the things that feed our soul. What makes you happy, puts a smile on your face, makes you feel complete, puts fuel in your tank?

For the days left of March, I'm going to post a photo each day of something that feeds my soul, with little to no words.

And I do hope you play along, even if it's just to take notice of the people or things of
meaning in your life.

march on my friends
