Hello, hello! Everybody hanging in there? I thought I’d pop in for a quick coffee chat today because, well – chatting is about the only thing I know how to do right now that feels safe! Ha!
For real, though – are we all doing okay? It’s okay to admit if you’re not because hi – my name is Karly, and I’m definitely not 100% okay.
I’m tired, mentally exhausted, scared/stressed/upset beyond belief. Even angry, especially when I see videos or pictures of large gatherings. What is so hard to understand about social distancing, people?! Don’t you care about the elderly, YOUR PARENTS?! Ugh. This is what it’s like to live in my head right now. 😉 I know deep down that we will get through this. When that will be, who knows. I’m even nervous that life-as-we-knew-it will forever be altered, even when everything calms down. Only time will tell.
To reiterate what I said in Monday’s post, let’s continue to take care of ourselves and others (and our pets!). We need to support one another, and lift each other up during these tough times. Even through all this mess, I’ve seen so much positive – Italians singing to each other from their balconies really got to me – so I know that we’re still capable of having an upbeat outlook. And, even though posting here is probably more for me/my sanity than yours, I do hope that maybe this space can be a small bright light during your day. So, let’s try to make the best of things!
A few happies & things:
+ The Chicago Shedd Aquarium took their penguins on a field trip – cue the cuteness.
+ My Therapist Says on Instagram is the humor and laughs we all need right about now.
+ Never question again how to style a denim jacket.
+ With the extra downtime at home, why not treat yourself to a DIY mani/pedi? These polish shades are gorgeous for spring!
+ Great tips on how to extend your first-day wash/blow dry because who cares about doing their hair on the regular right now?
Stay safe, happy and healthy, everybody!
