My Coronavirus Resource Guide + Personal Thoughts

My Coronavirus Resource Guide + Personal Thoughts

It took me a while to publish today’s post. I rewrote it a few times and, once, even deleted it. Everything in the news today is so serious and so scary that I actually almost didn’t even get out of bed today. There are so many unknowns with my lungs that I am taking Coronavirus extremely seriously. My genetic testing appointment got pushed out because it’s too risky for me to go to medical facilities right now. So now I am hunkered down in my home, trying to work, but also trying to find some joy. If you missed my Instagram post over the weekend, Sean and I got chicks for my birthday. They have provided the truest, simplest, sweetest form of joy that I could possibly ask for right now. I am always trying to make this blog a better, more useful place for you — and right now I think the best way I can do that is to make a post that offers my suggestions for this uncertain time.

15 Chic Match Strikers

15 Chic Match Strikers to Light Your Fire! Ceramic, metal, and stone containers to hold matches and more for candles, perfect for adding stylish sophisticated home decor accessories to your coffee table #candles #hygge #cozy #matches #matchstriker

I’m sort of a nerd when it comes to candles and candle accessories… when it comes to lighting a candle, I prefer to use matches because I love that little whiff of sulphur when it first ignites! Plus, it feels like a ritual. Because of my love for matches, I’ve also developed an affinity for my match strikers. If you don’t know what those are, basically it’s a container that has an abrasive surface that ignites the match when it’s scratched against the surface. They are a great opportunity to add a bit more sophistication to your home, especially if you keep a tray of candles on your coffee table like I do!
