Hello and long time no blog! I got in a groove with blogging, both sewing and non sewing related, and then the past couple of weeks kind of knocked me on my ass.
First, and something good!, Chris and I both got our second vaccines. This is exciting and as of today I am fully vaccinated. It did however, knock both of us out, so I lost a couple of days there.
Then I found out one of my oldest friends died very unexpectedly. I spent last week processing that news as well as connecting with friends both on the phone and over social media. I didn’t feel like writing or creating much and just let myself be.
Finally, this past weekend we celebrated the twins’ birthday! I will share more tomorrow, but from Thursday until today we were enjoying time with my parents and celebrating them and just enjoying being together.
I’m so grateful for so many things, but life is hard sometimes and things like blogs and hobbies have to be let go of. My friend’s death was also a painful reminder that nothing is promised and to treasure the time we have with the people we care about. I tried very hard this weekend to be present and enjoy the people I love!
I have some more makes to show you in the coming weeks and am looking forward to sharing our summer with you in this space! Take care of yourselves and take care of each other! I appreciate all of you that follow along!
