The last few weeks have been really difficult, and that's why I haven't posted. I'm sure the last thing you want to read is any more bad news, so I figured I could instead use the time to collect myself, and forge ahead when I could blog about something fun for a change! These photos were taken over a month ago, after things started opening back up in California. It was my first time dressing up since March, and it felt absolutely amazing to put on a new little Summer dress, carry my favorite Summer bag, and enjoy an evening walking through a winery again. It was a glimpse of normal, though it was eerily quiet as Nate and I took photos along the path. Not a single soul was around, no sounds of wine glasses clinking in the background. Still, we made the most of it and took in the blooming scenery. We both laughed at our awkwardness doing something we'd done a hundred times. He forgot how to work the camera, I forgot how to pose (which let's face it, has never stopped me before). It almost felt like a first date.

Shortly after, California reimposed shutdowns, and that's where we stand today. Our state has been hit fairly hard, and I don't know where we will go from here. I'm praying for the best possible outcome, but I find myself worrying most days. I really miss everything about life before Covid. I apologize for my absence and for the haphazard way I've been running this blog. It's basically the way life is at the moment. Thankfully, I know you understand.

  2. I can't imagine how difficult it is to have that feeling of positivity and things opening up only to have it taken away again! We are in IL and things have been shut down since March. It all is really tough! I feel relatively safe with all the sanctions but frustrated because I want it all to be over!

    1. I hear you girl! Every state is doing things so differently it seems, which makes it feel like we are all living in different countries or something. It's so weird! Nobody seems to have the perfect formula either. I know most people I talk with here in California are beyond frustrated. We all just want this year and this pandemic to be over. Hang in there though :)
