This will put a smile on your face!
There are very few days where I wake up feeling "normal" these days. I have gotten used to having the kids at home, and changing my daily routines, but I still cannot quite wrap my arms around this COVID19. It is scary, and depressing. I have had to block thoughts from my mind as I get up each morning, just so I can find my footing. On some days, I actually forget about it. Being a mom of two teenagers, who draw their own conclusions to the news that they watch on Tiktok or Youtubetv, I am forced to have a positive interpretation of everything. Yet still, I have a job, and besides the fact that I have not had a vacation since last October, each day I go to work and bury myself in a ton of fabric. It is easy to drown out the bad. Except for the fact that we no longer have a social life, not much has changed. We don't go shopping anymore. We don't go anywhere really. We spend time together as a family. Our weekends are spent in the yard, watching tv, and trying out new recipes. It isn't until nightfall when we watch the news that I get that overwhelming depressing feeling or should I say blessed feeling that we are both still employed, and yes thank goodness still healthy. My heart goes out to all those people suffering through this pandemic. I cannot even imagine how they must be feel.
I don't mean to make everyone suffer through my emotions. Some days are just harder than others, which is why I have such a difficult time sending out emails or writing blog posts, or taking pictures. I just cannot find the magic at the moment. I will keep trying and remember that we must remind ourselves of the smaller things in life, and never take for granted what we have.
I finally found a rare moment to organize a small photoshoot this week. And YES, it did put a smile on my face. Children are definitely happy moments, precious. Spefically, this little girl who is under 2yrs old, and full of personality. I could have watched her play and photographed her all day. Mumbling to themselves words that make no sense. So innocent and happy. I made a note to self to do this as often as I can.
The dress is our CHERRY BLOSSOM DRESS.
It is a classic styled summer dress with spaghetti straps and an elasticized back bodice. The print is gorgeous. White ccotton background with little pink and red cherries and bright green leaves. Just perfect.
