March Highlights + Faves

Well...March 2020 is gonna be one for the history books.

So much has changed in our world and is beyond normal that I'm not even sure where to begin with this blog post.

Many bloggers I follow have shared that they really struggled this month with whether or not to share their normal type of content because everything is now so topsy-turvy.

I have to admit I struggled with that a bit as well but I ended up sharing more content this month than I normally do. Part of that was to keep myself busy in my extra free time, but I also wanted to give you something not related to the coronavirus to read and watch.

Below are my March highlights and faves which is a collection of some of my content from the past month and some things that I've been loving and hope you will also enjoy.

New Pinterest Board

A New Chandelier For My Dining Room!

Since I've had more time at home lately I decided to do something I should have done when I first moved into my house. That something is to switch out the builder-grade light fixture in my dining room for a new one. The chandelier I purchased and put up (by myself) is the Weyburn 5-Light Chrome Caged Island Chandelier from Home Depot.
