Some people consider February to be their month of the year because of Valentines day, some believe December is the killer month with lots of fun & holidays and some love June-July because of summer vacations but for me, March has always been that special month of the year.

At the Tweetup today, everyone was sharing how was their March? I wondered a bit and then realized I could talk for hours when it comes to March 2012 but I thought I should rather write it down. As writing is my weakness, I will write less about it😛
