(Just a note before we start: Unfortunately, due to Internet issues, there aren’t any pretty pictures for this post. Sorry about that)

Hello guys!! Can you believe we’re a whole week into April already?? It’s crazy, but I’m going to update you on my March. These posts of mine tend to be really, really long, but today I’m going to attempt to shorten my monthly wrap-up posts, in the hope that I won’t sound so rambly!
