Goodbye, February 2023!

February was a month of firsts. Baby Bear had his first birthday! He also stood up all by himself and took his first steps!! ๐Ÿ˜ He’s eating solids for the first time, staying at the church nursery during service for the first time, playing along side other babies for the first time. As for myself, there were other personal firsts I rather enjoyed, but really, everything that Baby Bear is doing for the first time is what I truly enjoy most ๐Ÿ˜Š

March Goals

My main goal for March is to get back into studying Korean. Yep, I still carve a little time daily to study Korean… or at least used to. I was busy in February, and next thing I knew, February was done! So now I’m getting back into the groove.

I’m also following an Italian blog that is making me really want to get back into studying Italian as well, but I just don’t think I have the time ๐Ÿ˜ญ Maybe a little each day? Mmm, and even though I want to go outside to take more photos, I might not be able to. March can be the coldest month in Colorado. We’ll see with that too!

One thing I do want to really get back into is playing guitar. A few years back I made the goal to write a song, with lyrics, before I turn 40. Well guess what! I’m 39!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ So I’m bringing my sparkly red guitar downstairs to practice while Baby Bear sleeps ~ or I might play for him too. He does enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜„ It’s been almost 2 years since I touched my guitar, so it’s time to get my fingers used to it once more โค๏ธ

I got it in 2017 and took a pic right away!

That’s about it for me! I’m also planning a bunch of blogs called “Romanticize Your Life: For Moms” and I’m excited about that ๐Ÿฅฐ

What about you? How was February? Do you have any March goals?

Take care and God bless,

Yari, the โœฟ Lovely Panda Mom โœฟ


  1. Ooooh, congratulations on all the firsts with your Baby Bear!!! ๐Ÿป And those are some awesome goals you have for March; language learning is so much fun in my opinion! I am learning Swedish on Duolingo and I practice it on there daily. And, your guitar!!! That is so cool, and I hope you can have the time to play and write some lyrics! ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽถ

  3. Thanks for sharing your March goals, Yari! I always wanted to play guitar but never will. It amazes me how musicians are able to coordinate hand/finger movements on strings or keyboards, but I realize much practice goes into it.
    I will continue to chip away sorting through paperwork I’ve accumulated over the years. I had to clean out my parents’ house to resell it and I don’t want to leave that task to our sons.
    On a lighter note, I bought a large sketch pad and want to get back into my art now that I’m retired. I haven’t drawn or painted in twenty-plus years.

    • Thanks for reading! Yes, at first, it was hard for me to do a chord with my left hand and strum with my right. It felt like trying to move two completely different bodies ๐Ÿ˜‚ It was only with practice that it became more natural. For decluttering, it can feel overwhelming. Just remember a little at a time will do! ๐Ÿ˜Š And that’s awesome! I wish you the best on your art!! Maybe you’ll share it on your blog someday?

      • Thanks, Yari! Yup, thereโ€™s no rush on the decluttering. Thanks for the art wishes. Iโ€™m going to get to it soon.
        RE: musicianship
        Iโ€™ve read that itโ€™s difficult for bass players in bands who also sing. They must play a bass line while also singing a non-corresponding melody. Some bass players can do it, but others canโ€™t. The brain is an amazing thing.

  4. Sounds like some wonderful goals for March. I have found that even if I devote a little time (say 30 minutes), develop it into a habit every day, there is a huge payoff long-term.

    So for March, I want to continue making videos. I have been writing every day for a long time now. This year I decided to add video to the mix. I do not really like how I look or sound but I am going to keep at it.

    Blessings for a wonderful March.
