2020. I’ve spent a lot of this year wondering what the history books are going to say about this particular year. Can you imagine your kids coming home from school with a project requiring them to ask their parents about 2020? I can imagine a parent, screaming and dropping that nights dinner on the floor, in horror. Or another parent grabbing a pack of cigarettes and dramatically taking a drag before staring off into the sunset, right before getting ready to invite the repressed memories back in.
In all honesty though, this year has been good to me. In February, Jacob proposed to me in Paris, in a freaking library. Sure, when we got back from Paris, we almost immediately went into what we thought was a 2 week lockdown. We thought that we would most certainly be out in 2 weeks. 2 weeks turned into 2 months… and then more months and it’s December now with no end in sight. Through that, we bought a house in August. Our very first house that we mostly got so that Sidney could have a backyard to run around in. It was stressful and I cried a lot. I was and am incredibly lucky to have a job that has been able to survive during the pandemic. I had the opportunity to work from home. Jacob has been in the same boat. Everyone asks me how much we’ve driven one another crazy and honestly, we haven’t. It’s been a pleasure working with Jacob again. Except when we have meetings at the exact same time. Then he has to leave the office so I can have peace and quiet for my meeting. I really committed to my Tarot practice and I’ve never been more confident in this before. I’m really understanding what the cards are telling me and it’s so very cool.
So here is my year in photos. I hope you enjoy it and that you’re able to cherish something from this year.
That’s it folks. I never took photos of us laying on the couch watching Tiger King or Queens Gambit… Or playing video games… or reading books… or baking/cooking… or all the other things you can actually do while inside not talking to other people. Did I mention that I miss bars?
Goodbye 2020. Don’t let the door hit ya on your way out! (I have turned into my father)
