January 1, 2021

Annnnnnd that’s a wrap! Guys. What was this year?? I am so so so grateful that my family came out unscathed but I know far too many people whose worlds were rocked in the worst ways.

Is it time for resolutions for 2021? Nah, I don’t think so. I think taking a minute to think about what I’m extra thankful for now is more fitting:

  • My husband’s job and job security
  • My own business recovering quickly after multiple lockdowns and doing better than ever ::insert shocked Pikachu face::
  • My whole family’s health
  • The means to homeschool one kid and let the another resume in-person schooling (and no outbreaks!)
  • The technology to be able to video call my family and friends, 6,000 miles away

Don’t get me wrong, we had our shit moments too (a trip to visit family that never happened, my dad still not being able to visit us here and meet his granddaughter, someone stealing my website design and branding, having to issue refunds to clients, not being allowed to shoot births, etc.), but in the grand scheme of things, we’re okay. And I’m very optimistic about the new year. Things might not turn around for everyone right away, but I see that light way down there at the end of this dank, dark, slimy tunnel.
