March is Museum Membership Month!

On the heels of another successful Sacramento Museum Day, the Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) has identified March 2015 as Museum Membership Month!  The benefits of museum membership often extend well beyond a financial savings and include exclusive experiences only available to members.  Plus, there’s something for everyone as the thriving Sacramento museum community offers memberships at virtually every museum and/or destination -- from fine art and culture to native, exotic and endangered wildlife.  

To highlight Museum Membership Month in March, many of the 30 museums are offering special incentives and discounts for enthusiasts who choose to become members of their favorite museums and destinations.  A few limited-time offers include the following:

•   Aerospace Museum of California -- 25 percent off new Family memberships during March;

One of my favorite quotes, "Don't look back. Something may be gaining on you."  Our Folsom mamas are certainly not looking back as they walk/jog and eat these hills for breakfast!  Do you remember the first time you looked at that hill, then were asked to jog up?  You were probably thinking..."can I do this?"  Yes, you can.

If you find yourself struggling with a goal or your New Year Resolution, look at the challenge not as a setback, but as an opportunity to discover who you are.  Reset, reboot, start today.  Yes, you can.
