A Socially Distanced Visit ♥

Hello Friends! 

This is what visiting family looks like in 2020.  

Today was my mother in laws birthday.  We haven't seen her in months and we won't be seeing any family for Thanksgiving so today we stopped by for a short visit.  

We stayed outdoors on their patio the entire time.  It was a chilly day (44 degrees) but my father in law lit this toasty fire and set up some heaters for us.  Just like outdoor dining in the city! : ) 


My mother in law had blankets in case we needed them, but we didn't.  We all dressed in layers and were quite comfortable. She prepared some snacks for us... all in individual baggies.  Even the marshmallows for the hot chocolate were in individual bags so we didn't have to touch anything.  

She thought of everything 

It's amazing what you take for granted. 

We ordered pizza and sat around the fire and talked.  We had so much fun catching up in person!  The sad part is that now that the weather is getting colder who knows when we'll be able to do it again.

 But I'm grateful for today.  

It was a lovely afternoon and I'm so glad we were able do it.  I know so many people where it's just not possible for them to see family or friends, so I know how lucky I am.  

Someday we will look back on these times and wonder how we got through it.  But we will get through it.  And it will be wonderful (Sitting indoors, enjoying a meal, hugs! Can't wait!) 

I hope you all are having a nice Sunday.  We are home now.  Getting warm.  Some of us are napping.  Some are watching football.  I'm having tea talking to you : ) 

I can't believe this week is Thanksgiving, which means another round of pumpkin pie!  Something else I'm eternally grateful for! (because it's so good!)

Happy new week, friends! 

Stay safe & cozy!  xo 


  1. We anticipate a socially-distanced and not sharing a table day coming up this week! It's wonderful that you were able to visit with your family!

  2. So sad but sounds like a wonderful visit. Thanks for the positive spin on our circumstances, needing that right now!! And pumpkin pie is always something to smile about. Take care:)
