The New Normal

Thank you to all the first responders, medical worker, and service people who keep going to work. You keep the rest of us safe, healthy, and fed during this difficult time. I know that this is a very hard time for so many families, everyone has their own struggles, and no matter how much we can feel for someone else we can never know what it is to be in their shoes. All we can do is respond to crisis with kindness.

Quarantine in our home involves a lot of playing with Emma, which I can’t complain about. We are lucky to be able to walk in our neighborhood, and I have really enjoyed exploring all the streets around our home. We also have gotten a ton a yard work done, which was the plan for this spring anyways. The hardest part has been not being able to visit with friends, and that I have not been more than 5 miles from our house. A typical weekend for us would typically involve hiking, camping, or a trip to the beach. Staying home has made me thankful for everything we have. I am forced to slow down, and find ways to keep busy while just being with myself, an eleven month old, and a husband…so I guess I’m never by myself.

One of my favorite times of the day is the late evening, Emma is asleep, and we can work in the garden, and process the day. Having to stay in has made me appreciate our home even more.

Being home has made me want to spend more time writing on the blog. Typically I write about our travels, which ain’t happening right now, so what other things would you be interested in reading about? Cooking, health, fitness, natural beauty? Let me know in the comments.
