March Forth

{via weheartit}

Whenever March fourth rolls around, Joe states, "March fourth...the only day with a command!" Because it is also one of his best friend's birthdays, he calls him up and instructs him to "March forth into a new year!"

When I posted this on twitter this morning, I was reminded that there is also "March First". How could I have missed that?! Here I am, thinking I need to 'March forth' when I didn't even 'March first' a few days ago.

Anyway, since the date does tell us to do something, we like to make it a notable day. Believe it or not, it is probably one of my favorite days of the year. I mentioned our good friend's birthday, but there are also other notable March 4th's in our past.

-Last year on March 4th, I registered my Etsy shop. Although I didn't actually start posting hand knits for sale until the end of the month, I had just decided on my name and took action. Because of this, this past year has been an incredible journey into a new world of creating, designing, and blogging.

-My grandparents got married on March 4th 53 years ago (Happy Anniversary, Dee Da and Doe Doe- I love you!).

-Today I will begin tackling the Adobe Creative Suite I just got in the mail- we'll see where that takes me :)

-My favorite March 4th? Five years ago today, while visiting my grandparents and celebrating their anniversary with them, Joe asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. What a wonderful day that was. Here's to the next 55 years!

So, take action. What have you been putting off? March forth and make today count!

  1. Wow, what a great day of anniversaries!! Tell Joe that he made me laugh out loud - I've never thought about "March fourth" being a command before, haha. Love it.

  10. Great words about marching forth. Sounds like words from the Bible.

    I hope that you come to love Adobe Creative Suite as much as I do. Photoshop is wonderful!!

  13. my husband stated, rather loudly "March Forth" throughout the day. Then remembered there is also "March too"! Enough already!
    Not only does Joe knit, he knows how to hit a home run by proposing on an important family day! Nice to have a "keeper".
