I find myself buoying between relief that all my people are still safe and cared for, and still grieving for life the way it was. This week brought cancelled vacations but also fun new ways to connect.
Brian and I had an interesting convo at lunch the other day. The last decade of our lives has been living in constant anticipation of the next holiday, the next vacation, the next work trip, the next time we get to see family, the next date night, the next event. Now that that anticipation has been eliminated, entirely, I'm feeling a little lost.
I find myself searching for ANY way to make the days different, and to bring little spots of joy to the monotony. I'd love to hear what you're doing to break up the days.
This weekend, I'm going to let myself read as much as I want - no guilt that I should be doing something else. I've found that re-reading old favorites has been the trick to finding escape. I also started a Bookshop to gather up all my in print favorites and be able to share them with all of you. I love what they're doing.
I hope that wherever you are, you're able to find small bits of joy, and are making it through. Here's what has been helping to get me through this week...
I don't know about you but our kitchen is getting a WORKOUT these days. And it's starting to get a little rough around the edges.... unlike this kitchen! I love the balanced mix of materials and all that storage! A dream!
