How’s everyone else doing?⁣⁣

Some days are great. Being at home with our little family of 3 (and by that I mean 4, sorry Wes🐶 !) is wonderful. Soaking up this unexpected time we have together, working on our house, enjoying the weather, cooking new things, watching our little man grow up before our eyes. It’s not time you can get back so in many ways it’s such a blessing. Our little cocoon is safe and comfortable.⁣⁣⁣

The time we’re in is a lot about loss.

Not just the loss of life, jobs, control…there’s many areas, but two I’ve been feeling the most recently.

The loss of moments.

Simple moments in time – often ones we take for granted – that can’t be revisited once this is over. Both the celebratory and painful ones.
