Hey there. Life is chaotic and stressful right now, non? It’s been ages since I’ve had time to write, but I wanted to reach out now because, well, here we are. Colin and I are currently safe and healthy, albeit terrified… for ourselves, our loved ones, our neighbors, and all the health care workers, janitors, grocery clerks, garbage collectors, and others who put their lives on the line every day after being repeatedly failed by a government that should be protecting them.
There are a million articles out there with guidance from public health officials telling you what you need to do: STAY HOME, and when you must go out, stay at least 6 feet away from everyone else. I’m going to leave it there. The second-best thing we can all do right now (after staying home) is to take our cues from public health experts, not political leaders.
Anyway, I’ve found myself with some extra time these days, which I know is decidedly not the case for everyone (parents, essential workers, those who are sick or are caring for someone who’s sick…), so I thought I’d try to revive this blog. I’m obviously not traveling anytime soon, but I have a backlog of travel photos and, let’s be real, funny faux pas happen even when you’re living in your own country. Even when you’re living in your own apartment with only a husband and your plant babies, which are growing in Erlenmeyer flasks because said husband is a scientist and that’s what he had. So from me and my plant babies to you and yours: hi again. Let’s catch up, shall we?
