To all of our COVID Brides, We love you.
WE LOVE YOU.
Our hearts ache for all of our Brides who have had to postpone their big day due to this pandemic, but we want you to know, you're not alone. You are so loved and after all of this is over, you're still going to have the best love story ever written. As sadness may feel extra heavy in this season, let's try and flip the script. It may take some practice but let's try to change perspective of a silver lining in all of this madness. Maybe you REALLY wanted to change a specific detail about your big day but were running our of time.... Now's your shot to make it happen for your new date! Maybe you needed this unexpected quality time together and are falling even deeper in love with your other half. Focus on making fun memories... How can you make this time special? Chris + I have been loving getting outdoors, wether its walking our pups , riding our bikes or even having a picnic at our favorite spot behind our house.
I have also been blessed with this extra time to learn about self care. I have always known mental health was important but I never took the time to slow down, take a breath and tap into what I need. I'm learning so much about myself and what fills my cup + I don't think I would have taken the time if the world was still open. I know I was always a stress ball, I wore too many hats and felt stretched too thin, which did a pretty number on me. Now I am learning that " It's okay if my WHOLE list doesn't get completed in one day, I'm human not a robot". I am very Type A, with a thousand lists, but learning to let go a little. haha
I've learned to take even 10 minutes for myself, to focus on intentional breathing, sitting in prayer + gratitude, a short work out or even taking a candle lit bath.
These things feed my spirit. Since I cant physically be with family + friends , FaceTime has been a life savor.
Chris + I are also praying for our little miracle baby to come this year.
So... we definitely have extra time to work on that. hahaha
Just know during this season of isolation + sadness, you're not alone. We are here for you, just a text, phone call or FaceTime date away! If you just need a buddy to vent. We want you to know we love you + are here for you!
Sit in Gratitude today. Your perspective will change when you are thankful for what you do have. The negatives tend to feel heavier... but only if you let them.
be kind + let the light in + let love win.
Love you friends!
