I am super excited for Easter this year! A beloved, chocolate-egg filled holiday in the midst of the all the uncertainty that's been surrounding us lately. 

I relied heavily on drive-up orders and Amazon to make Easter happen this year. A few local children's shops started offering curbside pickups so I took advantage of those as well!

Finding little treasures to tuck inside baskets and new books to dive into has been a B I G stress reliever for me. While I always try to shop intentional (I hate tiny junk), their baskets are probably a little fuller this year because I found it hard to stop picking up things I knew would bring a smile to their face!

Here's a few of my favorite finds!

I couldn't resist another Rifle Paper Co edition of a classic book for L while I stuck to a funny comedian for N!  Both kiddos are getting a puzzle, kinder joy eggs, bubbles + chalk, and those fun squeezy teenie nee doh balls. 

Other things making it into their baskets!

More enamel pins. L is starting a collection! 
The cutest swim trunks for N.
Card games! Spot It and Qwixx.

I hope you all have an A M A Z I N G holiday!

"Can we come into the out now?"

It's a funny little joke we've got running in our house now, but seriously, CAN WE?

We're a few weeks into this new normal and some days I have a grasp on reality. Those are the days we're usually tackling something from our old normal - like grabbing takeout (while social distancing!), tackling house projects, and hanging out in our backyard.

Most days I'm flailing like a fish out of water, though. The days blur together. Hours of virtual classwork, sharing funny memes on my IG stories, making countless meals and snacks, and watching all the episodes of Tiger King.

It's fine though, we're fine.

We're surviving and holding out for the days we can go out and resume life again. When we can just BE.

On the bright side, because there's always a bright side, maybe this is THE break we all need. I know I've said this year that I just needed the world to stop for a few days. I needed to breath and catch up. While I didn't really expect a viral pandemic to be the reason the world stopped, here we are.

Lia learned to ride her bike and we've been taking long bike rides together. It's been great.
We finished our backyard deck!
We're spending more time together than ever.
And, our house is filled with LIFE.

The communities around the country are coming together like never before.
The sheer amount of resources being pooled online for kids and families is incredible.
Virtual museum tours, Josh Gad reading stories, Mo Willems teaching art.

Let's embrace the good where we can find it, and let's learn from the bad.
