COVID-19

Comfortably On Repeat

We’ve had a pretty chill first month of 2021 so far and I’m very happy with that! This time last year Jimmy had just been hospitalized for gastritis and the U.S. was beginning to worry about COVID.

Who would have guessed that we would have to wait in line to get into grocery stores, only to find empty shelves, or that wearing a mask in public would be totally normal. Needless to say, having a relaxed first month of 2021 is wonderful in my opinion! (more…)

2020 Notes and Thoughts

I think it’s safe to say that 2020 was totally different than we all expected it to be. Different isn’t always bad. COVID brought a lot of changes to our everyday lives, but going with the flow and learning to make the best of it has made all the difference.

I don’t know what 2021 has in store, but I’m praying it’s awesome for each and every person reading this! Here are a few of my thoughts and stats from 2020. Feel free to share yours in the comments 🙂
