OUR FAVE SOCIALLY-DISTANT HOLIDAY FESTIVITIES

2020 may be one of the craziest years ever but the holidays don’t have to FEEL canceled! Naiya and I masked up and took our first mother/daughter date out this past weekend in MONTHS to celebrate making it to the end of 2020. Thanks to ALL the work zooms, I’ve BARELY left the house this year. Needless to say, this adventure felt like a safe mini vacation in the best way! Sharing photos from our (socially distanced) girls day out to the Westfield Century City mall.  Rounding up all of the fun holiday things we did there and ideas for safe holiday festivities for you and your fam.

HELLO SAWYER: VIRTUAL CLASSES WE’RE LOVING

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’m truly not sure how it’s already December but here we are! As we’re all experiencing this second big wave of COVID-19 and many of our cities are locking down again, virtual learning continues to be our go-to. Amidst a sea of SO many virtual classes to choose from for our little ones, I’m so happy our family found Hello Sawyer.  Today, I’m  sharing more intel about why we’re so obsessed and we’re letting you in on a special sale the company is offering right now for a limited time before the holidays.

REMEMBER SHOPPING WITHOUT A MASK?

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.
