What I’m Lovin’ in March

As you may have noticed, it’s been a little quiet on the blog this month. We’ve been thrown a few curve balls this month and we’re still trying to recover. I’ll post more about this soon, but for now your happy thoughts are much appreciated 🙂

There’s not a ton to share, but before March is totally over, I wanted to share the super short list of what I’ve been lovin’ this month!

what i'm lovin

1. it’s National Women’s History Month!

I hope you hugged your mama, grandmama or favorite female #BossLady tight this month and thanked her for all she’s been through that makes life so much easier for you.

2. it’s also Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Sure, this sounds far less glamorous than #1, but did you know that colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S.?!

A few years ago, I watched my husband lose his uncle to colon cancer. That was a fierce battle and one that will forever scar my husband and his family. That being said, [as the loving wife that I am 😉 ] I try to make sure I encourage the Hubs to limit his risk as much as possible. The month may be over, but I encourage you to reduce your risk of this preventable disease as well! You can learn more about Colon Cancer Awareness Month here and read more about diet and activity factors that affect risk for certain cancers (broken down by cancer type) here.

These may remain on my list forever 😉
