Now that I can finally breathe again, I have taken some time the last few days to take inventory of things that might have gotten lost in the shuffle of 2020. First on the list was “self care”.
Like a lot of people, 2020 was a rough year for me personally. Although it is really easy to dwell on the horrible things, I have to say, the end of 2020 has been far better than the beginning! The Bertuzzi family entered the last quarter of the year by moving into our dream home and although moving and gearing up for the holidays can be SUPER hectic, we couldn’t be more grateful!
To be honest, I have had my fall decorations up for the past two weeks, pumpkins and all! With college football MIA, and the unconventional school year underway, I wanted to help get the family in the fall spirit a little early with a fun spin on our favorite fall family tradition, planting our fall garden.
It’s no secret that this year has been hard for everyone. The one thing that I think keeps me afloat in all of this is knowing that EVERYONE this year is feeling the same way. There is solidarity in knowing that you aren’t the only one.
Last night I waited patiently for the latest from the school board concerning Cami’s back to school update. It looks like they are pushing the school year back a few more weeks. As a way to get her mind off of all the things she can’t do now, I started encouraging her with what she CAN do to prepare for back to school while we wait.
