Just checking in…

Hi, how are you doing? I really want to know. Have you taken a moment to check in with yourself? The past six months have both flown by and crawled at the same time.

I was speaking with a friend this past weekend and she talked about how life seems back to normal, but different all at the same time. Would you say that you feel that way, too?

Several years ago, my husband and I started talking about “BKYD Life”, we didn’t know what it would actually look like but we just kept thinking about how fast life was moving. We wanted to encourage people to slow down and use the backyard to gather with family and friends, to create community and grow together.

When we actually started “BKYD Life” a year ago, we certainly didn’t see a pandemic in our future. We didn’t know that everyone would have an opportunity to take a collective breath and really start to look at what was truly important.

So, back to my original question. How are you doing? Have you been able to embrace the new rhythm of life? Do your days feel normal now, just a different normal from before?

We learned a long time ago to slow down and enjoy the moment, but even for us this has been an adjustment. Before the pandemic began in March, we were planning a trip to Italy to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We would just be getting back if all were normal.

We could be disappointed and frustrated but we would rather focus on this opportunity to spend time with our family in a space we created for making and sharing memories ~ our backyard.

Please let me know in the comments, how are you adapting or not…

Cheers to a fabulous fall, gang!
