Life Update + Thoughts on Slowing Down
I’ll be honest–the last few weeks have felt like a total blur over here. It started with my husband getting COVID in early November, then one by one we all took our turn with it, including the kids. Thankfully we had mostly mild cases–the girls barely even had a fever for one day and my son only had a 16 hour bout with it, which I’m very grateful for because I know that’s not always the case. My husband and I faired pretty well too, but now the biggest hurdle has just been regaining our normal energy. Plus my taste and smell are completely gone, so that’s been interesting. But I gotta say, it was definitely a bit surreal to finally have this thing that has turned our world upside down in the last year and a half. If you’ve had it you might know that feeling. You don’t know what’s going to happen, how your body will handle it, or what to expect. I definitely spent a lot of time praying throughout all of this and I’m so grateful for how God has walked us through this in such a sweet way. Sooo thankful to be on the other side of it!
I just want to thank you for being patient with me as things have been very quiet here on the blog this month. It definitely hasn’t been intentional, but sometimes life just throws you a curve ball and forces you to slow down. I struggle with the slowing down stuff (as most of you probably know by now!) but I also know it’s necessary sometimes and exactly what we need, even when the world is racing past us at lighting speed.
Now that we are finally out of quarantine, I have lots of exciting things to share with you in the next couple weeks–our mudroom makeover is almost complete after waiting months on tile work (hallelujah!) and we also have shiplap going up in the basement this week. I can’t wait to share both of those projects when they’re done, plus lots of holiday decor. Stay tuned!! xoxo
