Madness in March

So, March was a pretty crazy month.  A crazy AWESOME month.  And my lack of posting was directly caused by that.

But why? Because Spring Break happened in March.  The entire month I was either preparing for this one infamous week of college, or was right in the middle of it.  And, unlike the other 95% of other students at UA, I did not pack my bags to go home, nor did I hit the beach and join the crazy party that is Panama City.

My spring break was relatively unique, and I couldn’t have asked for a better one. I embarked on an epic road trip with three friends, from Alabama all the way to Arizona, and then back again.    So be prepared to be hearing A LOT about this within the coming weeks.

And also, for those of you who have read this post and are wondering where I’m headed this summer, I have the answer for you:  I’m headed to Morocco!  Eight weeks of this summer I will be spending in this North African country, based in the city Meknes and exploring a lot of it.  Who guessed right?!

And as a little introduction to my spring break road trip, here are all of my Instagram photos from this past month:
