Anyone else in two minds about this lockdown ending?
Professionally, I feel so excited about getting back out with my camera and clients! This downtime has allowed me to really settle into where I want to be going next creatively and with the business. I’m ready to get started.
Personally, I am relieved that Hen can go back to kindy and get the stimulation and connection with his friends that he has been missing. And alongside this, I am really looking forward to Flo and I having some one-on-one time.
But then I see our house starting to jog again. Pez goes back to work, everything about that makes me sad. We really settled into this lockdown. We yoga together every day and have just started paddle boarding and kayaking with the kids. Pez has fine dined us breakfast, lunch and dinner for months and as if that wasn’t enough, he also started a new tradition of special Sunday lunch, which is one of the greatest things ever. We finally had the time to finish off setting up our home and creating the spaces we had talked about for us and for the kids. We learned to be slow and present with the kids and each other.
So, I’m going into this one day at a time. I’ve written a list to myself to read every morning to try and keep me on track, slow and steady. I’d love to hear if you feel the same and if you have any tips to keeping your stillness as we all start to speed up again.
On that note, while I am still celebrating the home life, it is time to share this gorgeous family in their stunning Elwood home. A session I squeezed in between lockdowns.
