Taking a little blogging break this week to enjoy a mini staycation at home. While I’m looking forward to the rest and relaxation, my heart is heavy because I know my family and I should all be together right now for our annual vacation to Lake Tahoe.

The truth is, sometimes I envy other people’s social media as they pose together with family & friends, gathered in warm embraces in different states. While I miss spending time with my family tremendously, I realize what’s more important to me than vacations and hugs right now is that everyone I love will still be in this world when this pandemic is over.

Hope you guys have a beautiful week. See you back here Monday! XO.

    My sweet friend, I know how much you are missing this week but I hope you get to enjoy some relaxing time at home and I love how smart you are about everything. I actually get angry when I see big groups of people embracing, having weddings, baby showers etc.. I am like, if you would all just stay home we could all get to our lives a lot sooner! I still have not hugged my parents since March! Love you!

    I’m with you! It’s not worth the risk and laying low is the best thing right now. Enjoy your staycation!

    I can so relate to this post, Shauna! I want to see my friends, and family, but I will forego that short term gratification to insure we are all still around when this is over.

    Beautiful dress!

    Amen- safety is the most important thing right now! It’s so wild when I see people out and about normally… I haven’t seen my parents in a long time (except over Zoom) because they’re Boomers and I don’t want to expose them to anything.

    I hope you have a lovely staycation, sis! Get some r&r!

    Have a great break! We all need to step out sometimes and at times like these it’s important to prioritise the things that must be done.

    Enjoy your staycation Shauna and I hear you. It’s so tough right now especially since we all should be with our families and making memories. Yet this summer seems to be a quiet one but that’s okay because like you said, this pandemic will come to an end and we will get to do those things we missed out on at this time as well as see the people we couldn’t spend time with. Hang in there and one day at a time. Btw, hopefully you guys are okay from wildfires? Feels like entire state of CA is on fire but perhaps just feels like that since we are close to one. Anyway, wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  10. My heart aches for my family. I miss them so much. I know how you feel. My heart also aches as I watch the devastating wildfires out West. Thinking of you Shauna. Take care and be safe. Sending love.
