Words taken from Instagram on the day I posted some of these there…
So…this was the outfit I wore out to dinner with my parents and the Huz on 2-29-2020
Yes…it was a Leap Year.
It was also the last dinner out we had before going into isolation. We had talked about it as a family, but the gravity of it hadn’t hit me yet. The Huz had been talking about it for a while…and I just couldn’t deal with it. It was before anyone was thinking of doing anything here!
We talked about it being our last dinner out for a while, and we tried not to think about it, and enjoy it. And…well, if you know my parents…we did. We ordered pretty much the entire menu at Il Nido.
Sadly, that was the last time I spent in close proximity with my parents… 😭 They are my best friends, and it’s been so hard. We stop by outside their house and chat with them every morning now (them on their balcony, us on the sidewalk)
BUT…I’ll do whatever it takes to keep them healthy. To keep my family healthy.
But, I’ll also jump in front of our house and take pics as long as I feel like that’s safe, because capturing us in this time gives me joy! Behind the scenes videos of us taking these are in stories!
And let’s be honest…we have to find joy where ever we can!!
These words from the next days post with close ups of my amazing earrings made by a local beautiful mama.
Day 26 of self isolation…or is it 62?
At least we still have laughter! And my tripod!
We have to find joy where we can!
RIGHT?!? Because what else is there?!
I have to say that @thekirstyfiles has been one of those people that consistently does that! She not only finds the joy, but shares it selflessly by giving back and with laughter. ❤️
She has an amazing store up on Queen Anne @queenanneframe that I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never been inside! 🙈
BUT I saw her showing stuff in her stories and HAD to get these earrings that I will be wearing all the time! (ZOOM IN! They are so good, yet my hair hid them!). Sadly, I bought these and then saw 87 other things I wanted! 🙊
Not sponsored. Not even remotely asked for. She doesn’t know I’m doing this post! But…if you can support your local small businesses right now and share the amazingness, I say go for it! If you are local, she has so many amazing things!!! And will ship or deliver if you live in the QA area!
