Rebirth & Renewal

Happy March everyone! March is the third month and it is one of seven months that are 31 days long. March is also the beginning of spring, and with springtime comes renewal, resurrection and regrowth.

The month is chock full of happy days of celebration, including St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th and Easter Sunday on the 27th. Plus March 13th marks the return of Daylight Savings, meaning more sun every day. And basketball lovers can rejoice with the return of the NCAA’s March Madness!

If you’re anything like I am, nature is a sure way to enjoy the beginning of spring. Enjoy the rebirth and regrowth of the season by planning a family hike to the Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael and see deer, coyotes, migratory songbirds and raptors as you explore the preserve’s lush oak woodlands. Read all about why we consider the Center to be the jewel of the American River Parkway in this month’s issue — see you on the trails!

Our March issue is also our celebration of the arts. Read up on the vibrant theater scene here in Sacramento, and get to know the Sacramento Ballet’s “Tattooed Prince in Tights.” I’m sure you’ll enjoy the read and it’s guaranteed to entice you to buy tickets sooner than later. And we also give you a behind-the-scenes look at California Middle School’s newspaper and the students and staff behind its success.

And just in time for tax season, Bryan J. Bentley of Bentley Financial offers up five financial moves to make now. Don’t miss reading this one — Bryan always shares such great ways for us to be smarter with our money.

Hope to see you around town this month!

Always my best,
