“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.” This CS Lewis quote is my new mantra for 2021. Jumping into the new year, I’m feeling hopeful, grateful and inspired. In fact, I’ve been SO excited to be out of the 2020 dumpster fire, I feel like a GIANT weight has melted off my shoulders. Anyone else?! I know that nothing has ACTUALLY changed since December 31st, 2020 but something just FEELS different. Also, 2021 has already been especially crazy thanks to yesterday’s insane news out of D.C. so there’s that. I’m still staying positive because it’s the only way to get through all of this in one piece! Likewise, I’m excited to share our first outfit post of the year with you as well as two resolutions I’m setting out to accomplish this year.
I originally drafted today’s post a lifetime ago when I was uber-prego with Sadie and the world was still “normal.” I remember having such bad morning sickness sorting through all of these grocery store photos, I couldn’t bring myself to press publish so I hit ‘archive.’ Thankful to have rediscovered these shots this week because they have so much more meaning now. Naiya and I took these photos for a branded shoot and today, I’m finding comfort in seeing a snapshot of what life was like before COVID-19. Remember grocery shopping without a mask or without waiting in line six feet apart to get in?! Sharing these photos with you today as well as a family update. Spoiler alert: COVID-19 has really hit home for our family and life over the past few weeks has been a lot.
