Quarantine Life Update

Hello Lovelies?  It’s been a while since my last post. I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am thinking of you all and hope you are doing well during this challenging time. 

Like everyone I am learning to find ways to fill my days and make the best of this unexpected time at home. The last two weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions but I feel blessed to have my husband Andrew by my side. This is what I have been up to for the last 2 week.

Some days have been productive and I am able to successfully check off things on my to do list.  On other days I struggle with not having something to do with my day.  I am learning how to exist without having to constantly do something tangible. I have to remind myself that it is okay to just curl up in bed and take a nap or just sit still and meditate for 20 minutes. 

As you know Andy and I love to cook. Jamming out and dancing around the kitchen with Andy while cooking or baking always brings me joy.  It’s the perfect way to turn your brain off.  So we have been doing a lot of cooking and baking. ? What are some of the things you’re doing to keep busy?

Thanks to technology we have been able to face time and keep in touch with loved ones.  My first work video conference call was quiet the experience.  Here is actual footage of the video meeting. 

As we try to navigate our way through this time we all have to remember to be gentle with ourselves and try to start each day in a positive way. I love this poem by Be Inspired to Be.

Thinking of my brother who is on the front lines and saying a prayer everyday for all our families who may have first responders or essential personnel serving our communities. Wishing for your safety and health.

And lastly, remember to wash your hands. Take care of yourself and each other. Be well. ❤️

    Yes it has been a rollercoaster for sure. I am still in kind of shock. Between the blog, my photography, YT channel and learning French I keep myself very busy. Though this is nothing new for me, I just leave the house a bit less now.

      Trying to preserve some sense of normalcy is important. Love that you are learning French. Andy and I have been watching this French show titled “Call My Agent” on Netflix and we’ve learned so many French words. Take care Allie?

    We are all definitely having to adjust, right? These are unprecedented times for our generation.

    I love your cute, snuggly robe! I’m all about comfy clothes right now while working from home.

      Thank you Ashley. For sure. I have been living in my comfy lounge wear since working from home too. BTW I love your home office. Take Care ?

    This situation is still a bit unreal to me. Staying at home 24/7 can be quite a challenge as I’m homeschooling my kids and work from home. It really is important though not to go out so we are able to flatten the curve. Cooking and baking has become something the last few weeks and we are all enjoying it. Stay safe and healthy Nikki!

      Agree Simone, we all need to do our part to flatten the curve. I really enjoyed reading the tips you shared on things to do at home during social distancing. Thank you. Makes me realize there are so many hidden blessings in our lives we just need to take a step back and notice where they are. Take Care ?

    I have good days and bad…I guess just like everyone else. Most days I go through the day thinking – how can this be real life? It’s just is so upsetting. I miss seeing my family, but we have been having a Zoom call every Thursday, so it’s helped. Stay safe my friend. Sending you virtual hugs!!

      Thank you Katherine. Just focus on the positive so that you have the energy needed to weather this storm.?

    Thankfully I can work remotely and I’m still super busy but at least I’m saving a couple of hours travelling to and from work!
    It’s definitely an opportunity to slow down and actually live a life! Even getting an additional 1-2 hours sleep is a blessing! xx

    Stay safe, stay grateful, stay positive.

      Not having to commute to work is definitely a silver lining. A huge part of recovery and life is slowing down and no time like the present to enjoy that. Take Care Xx
