The “Eyes” of March :: 11/52 + Book Giveaway! (CLOSED)

The “eyes” of March. That’s the topic for this week’s photo challenge over at My 3 Boybarians.

I didn’t want to take a picture of eyes. Because that’s obvious. And I like to be creative, and sorta…un-obvious. Only sometimes this backfires and I’m so “creative” that I don’t make sense.

Things have been so warm here in NC lately. Yesterday it was 80 degrees when I went running. That was my first time running in that kind of heat pushing 2 kids and lemme tell ya – it was h.a.r.d. But I’m trying to accomplish this challenge as well as train for my 1/2 marathon, so…I did it. But not without pain, I might add.

Anyway, while I was outside the other day, I happened to notice a flower about to bud.

To me, this is the “eyes” of March. Things are warming up and flowers are beginning to bloom. Love this weather!

    Just liked your FB page:). If I used twitter, I’d tweet about it, too. I think this book would help me a ton. This topic has been on my mind a lot lately… Just simplifying life a little more. I think this book could really be beneficial! Even if I don’t win, I think I’ll buy it:). Thanks for the review on it!

    Hey Christa! Thanks for the heads-up about the book offer. I’m too much of a detail person sometimes. I sure could use a lesson in simplicity. This sounds like a “must-read” for me! Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve been hearing alot of good things about this book, but haven’t purchased my own copy so it would be perfect to win and read! =)

  5. Chelo says:

    I’m reading this right now on my Nook along with 52 Bites at a Time. They are both very helpful and I’d love to get a free paper copy of Organized Simplicity 🙂

  6. Ashleigh says:

    I would so love to win this, I’m very disorganized and with the 2nd baby on the way I need to step it up!

    I would love to win Organized Simplicity. I have liked Brown Sugar Toast on Facebook and am following on Twitter.

    Love daffodils. I sure could use Organized Simplicity. It is a great book. I borrowed it from the library once. It is one of those books that you just need to own so that you can refer to it. Great giveaway.

  10. Ok, I already like your FB page. I followed you on Twitter, and tweeted about the giveaway 🙂 Organizing is a hobby, but I could use some extra help these days . . . how fun! Beautiful photography btw.
