light a candle . be still

be still and know that i am with you. psalms 46:10


last time in his high chair 
we have been baking all the things this week: biscuits, cookies, and banana bread
walking through our neighborhood . camp north end 
we were the only ones there + the boys loved running throughout (and we didn't touch anything!)
how is your heart today?

some days i feel positive and just try to be at ease and be present 
and recognize that this is our life right now. 
and then somedays- i find myself with tears rolling down my face.
my love for hygge runs deep 

i just started doing a few organizational projects this week (it has taken me a few weeks to process and begin). i have read that a lot of people are having a hard time reading a book (me so far) and doing regular activities. i am an introvert/homebody, but we also love to be active and socialize around the city. i miss hugging and i miss our community + loved ones. 

i decided this week that i am going to light a simple white candle every morning over prayer + meditation in our kitchen . in honor of all of our family and friends who we miss dearly.

i have a feeling this may continue for many days and years to come.
