The silver lining of this quarantine period has been all of the extra time I’m getting to spend with both of my girls. I love watching their relationship grow stronger by the day and watching them start to interact and play with one another is the sweetest. But since Naiya still struggles with sharing me, I do my best to carve out one-on-one Naiya time every day because I know how important it is to her.
As Los Angeles continues to open up today after three months of quarantine, I’m anxiously awaiting what this will mean for us all. What will our new normal of social distancing look like post-lockdown and will we be able to keep COVID numbers down? We snapped these photos just outside of our home to commemorate this crazy time.
I usually fill this space with light, family-driven style content. However, the events we’ve all witnessed over the past week with the murder of George Floyd have moved me to tears. Amidst a sea of thoughtful, moving, gut-wrenching posts which have flooded social media, I’ve tried drafting a number of blog posts that simply couldn’t do all that is happening right now justice. I’ve come to realize it’s time for me to simply listen and continue to educate myself and my children.
And just like that, Sadie is 7-months old. Thanks to the quarantine and social distancing, I’ve blinked and here we are–more than halfway to one year with our sweet marshmallow. Sharing the latest and greatest on the Sadie front along with some Naiya highlights with you today.
Now that we’re in phase two of the quarantine, I’ve officially graduated from athleisurewear back to denim. After all, I’ve been craving some sense of normalcy and fashion makes me happy. But since it’s important to still stay comfy all day (SO many zoom calls!), I’ve been wearing a very specific type of denim on repeat–oversized, wide legged jeans. Sharing the comfiest pair I’ve been living in that also happens to be at an affordable price point. Also including full outfit details below because I’m obsessing over this white blouse with the an oversized bow too.
