Catching Up Over Coffee: March 2023


It felt like most my weekends were busy this month and also just like life was still happening? Like I went through countless to-do lists to try to stay organized. Here are some of the highlights of March:

We went to our second Springfield Thunderbirds game of the season, which was Pink in the Rink night.

And then we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day weekend the best way we know: with Reubens and green beer. We also went to brunch and on a walk to take advantage of Josh’s day off from work.

Josh and I went to two breweries: the first one was part of his birthday present (he got to pick a brewery to go to and I’d pay) and the second was a local one we’ve gone to before but always enjoy going to.

Not pictured highlights:

  • A nice day off with Josh getting breakfast, going to the library, and having a movie night
  • Celebrating my dad’s birthday
  • Guest-speaking in a digital marketing class on campus
  • Working on the upcoming show’s program for the theater group I volunteer with
  • Sending a co-worker off to her new job (☹️)
  • Getting purple put back in my hair—yes, just like my pandemic purple days!


I got in a good mix of bike rides, runs, and walks this month. March in New England is unpredictable, so I took advantage of the nice weather days when I could. I also ran my first 5K of the year last Saturday!


All of the March Madness! I’ve been watching the games from the Sweet Sixteen onward, and although I don’t really care who wins, I like to watch the games, especially the women’s. They just seem more competitive.

Also baseball started yesterday. I don’t have high expectations for the Red Sox this year, considering I think I can only name like three players on the team right now.
