By now, I think you know the drill…first Thursday of the month means it’s time for the “Sentence a Day” link-up. However, my sentences tend to be on the long-side…sometimes more like paragraphs. When you are a busy bee like me, it’s hard to sum up a day of life in a couple of words. So please bear with me as we run through one run-on after another describing my March.
Pool and Not-so-Balmy Breezes

So that was my March, in a few words. Seemed like a very looooong month to me. Maybe because of all of the wind???? And it is still blowing. I am afraid April’s sentences sound a little like the harping and complaining you have just read above.
Speaking of April…we have just gotten started on our sentences for this month. Still early enough for you to join the fun. And if you wrote sentences for March, be sure to link-up below.
If you blog, we will be linking-up again on May 4. But if you don’t, have no fear, you can still play! Just post pics to Instagram or Twitter, one a day with a sentence and use the tag #sentenceday.
Can’t wait to update everyone on my spring bucket list in a couple of weeks. Still need to get after my unstuffing, decluttering and spring cleaning. And want to do another spring fever fashion post. Hope you will join me again real soon.
Go out there and make today worthy of a run-on sentence full of detail!!!
Hugs and kisses,
