Best of 2020 | Being At Home

Happy Hump Day, loves! How’s your week going so far? I hope the transition back has been a smooth one. Little Miss resumed virtual school yesterday, and I have to say, it feels surreal all over again!

It’s not that I expected everything to go back to ‘normal’ once we said goodbye to 2020, but it’s a little deflating that literally nothing has changed. The difference I suppose is the real hope that things will change sooner than later.

The lockdown last March threw all of us in a tailspin, and I’ll admit, things came to a screeching halt around here. I’ve been blogging for almost 12 years, but there is no guidebook for creating content for and in a pandemic.

Everything changed… where we went (or didn’t go!), what we wore, what we bought, what took priority, and how we spent our time. I decided the best route was just to take you along with me as I figured out pandemic life.

We had a lot of real talks, and I shared our struggles, while also trying to keep this a positive place. It wasn’t always easy, nor did I always do a good job of it, but we stuck it out together… and by golly we’re still standing, right!?

Some of the content I created for this new life at home was some of my favorite of 2020, and I hope it proved helpful to you. Here’s a peek at some of those posts…

    This … is one amazing post. Just how hard you (ya’ll ) work. You research and post some of the most amazing places and things we would never think of ourselves. And make it all fun!
    Luckily, kids are pretty resilient, b’cuz I just heard on the radio, where I live anyway, the kids are about 6 mos. behind in school. Do not want to cause a frenzy here, but you do hear stories about how people are really struggling. Let’s all count the tiniest blessings & work to stay positive, SP community!
