Links I Love Week 14

We officially made it to April! I never thought I would be so excited to see March go. I don’t think April will be any easier but we are a little more used to the new way of things. Chicago is on lockdown for the whole month of April which means my groceries will be ordered online, I will be staying put inside and celebrating my birthday at home. If you have other quarantine birthdays this month, you can check out my post on How to Throw a Quarantine Birthday.
