16 days since I stepped into my downtown beauty lounge with clients. 16 days y’all. This is a long stretch for me. In my 20+ years in business, I rarely ever even took a long weekend off, I never ever put my phone down, ever.
Here we are. Business is basically non-existent. Half the time, I have no idea where my phone even is. My emotions are… well I am calm and feeling grateful at the moment.
Here I am, at home. I live on a farm on a hilltop with magical views and more deer than I can count. I have been (mandated literally) to stay home. We all have. Here is what I have been doing.
I am living wild and free with my sweet little grand babe.
I am yanking carrots out of the garden.
I am (almost) ready for my first flock of spring chicks. Yes they already have names.
I have washed more muddy clothes recently than I have in my entire life.
I am baking and cooking my most favorite recipes.
I am resting.
I am reading.
I am meditating.
I am doing yoga.
I am taking an online ballet barre class.
I sit on the porch swing and get lost in the rhythm of the back and forth.
I am cuddling with my tiny chihuahua Stella and my two barn cats Milly and Ruby.
I am working on new Norabloom Bath Fizzies.
I am planning my next Motherhood Photography Event.
I am truly and wholeheartedly finding solace in simple living, creating small batch beauty from home, and working on my next piece of art.
I hope you are well, staying positive, and also finding your own kind of peace.
