Happy New Year! A little bit behind and a bit backwards is how I’m doing this. Even though we were home A LOT this year, time seemed to fly by and I lost track again of posting on the site and sharing some of the wonderful family photos that I was able to take throughout the year. With that, I am going backwards into some positive days in 2020 where there were smiles, family photos, holidays and fun. I hope that you all get to enjoy the posts and that you all take the opportunity to reflect on 2020 realizing that although the year might not have been what we all expected it to be, there were some positives that came out of it that we can be thankful for.
Here was my short recap halfway through the year: http://jreinerimagery.com/2020-catch-up/
We continued the year with masks, remote learning, remote work, quarantining, drive-by birthdays, etc. A handshake, hug and kiss were a thing of the past, while elbow bumps, air high-fives and waves were the new ways of greeting folks. Virtual happy hours and other virtual events became more prominent. Staying home and getting more time to play games, watch movies and cook together as a family was the new way of living, actually a positive as it forced us to be a bit more present in our family lives.
Now as as we roll into 2021, these new ways of life will continue on but we will need to put any negativity that came out of 2020, behind us. Be sure to remember any of the positive you had in the year, reflect on that and bring that positivity into 2021. I am truly appreciative for all of your support and the smiles you have shared with me over the last year. I look forward to seeing your smiling faces again in the new year.
Stay happy, healthy and safe.
I am super grateful for the time I get to spend with my family. <3
