Quarantine IRL – Every morning as I sit in meditation, I list the things I am grateful for. At the top of the list is always the health and safety of my family. Additionally, I often find myself feeling grateful for nature’s daily gifts. The chirping of the birds, the sunshine, the sound of the rain, the smell of the wildflowers, and the fresh air.
Quarantine IRL – I’m so grateful for my neighbors and the amazing group of women and mom friends on my block that make this quarantine as fun as it possibly can be! (Socially distanced of course!) Dance parties in our front yards are the highlight for sure! Lifetime memories… that’s for sure!
Quarantine IRL – There pictures are such a blessing! This year is scary because it has reminded us all that time is finite and if/when a member of our tribe were to pass, these pictures will be priceless memories and comforts to the others in the family. Simply though, these family pictures are treasures!! They are my happy moments frozen in time!
Quarantine IRL – Capturing the day to day life doesn’t get done normally (at least for us), so having these is a reminder of just how blessed we are. Sometimes I take that for granted.
Quarantine IRL – For me, it is a pause in time & space. We have never, & hopefully will never again go through something of this magnitude. To know that we did it together as a family, stayed connected, strong, focused on our strive forward, I am so grateful to have these to look at now & to look back to in the future when we are on the other side of this thing.
Quarantine IRL – I’m really trying to reconnect with what makes me happy. I’m listening to music more, spending hours reading a good book, making a nice meal and even setting the table to make it more special on a regular old Tuesday night.
Quarantine IRL – The slowness and the simplicity. With having twin babies, our days at home are still really full, but it feels like we’re juggling and rushing so much less. Our days are filled with very basic things like cooking, cleaning, and connecting. I’m surprised to find that I think I was really craving that.

Our black greyhound, Gary, was very ill with cancer when these shots were taken, and he passed five days later. To have him in these shots with us is priceless, we miss him so.
