Alrighttt so we’re all undeniably really going through it. I mean, this is probably one of the weirdest times we’ve ever experienced so I think it’s only natural that stress and anxiety levels are high and that we’re all in a place of deep uncertainty.
For me, YES, I’m trying to see the silver lining in all of this (more family time, more time to reflect, more opportunities to practice self-care, etc.) but I would be lying if I didn’t say that this time has been super challenging.
SO, I wanted to write a quick little blog about things I’ve been doing , wearing, and using in my household that has helped me to make the most out of my quarantine experience. I hope this helps you, too!
Cozying up in cute and comfortable pajama’s have *actually* brought me so much joy. and I LOVE when all the kids are in their own matchy PJ sets. It’s the little things right now and I’m not even kidding when I say that when all of us are in PJ sets it makes me feel like I have my sh*t together (anyone else!? lol)

I’ve always been a candle girl but quarantining has literally made me NEED candles. I have them all over the house because 1) it smells good and 2) it reallyyyy calms me down.
There’s *actually* never been a better time to read all those books we’ve been putting off. Tbh, as a single mom in quarantine alone, it has not been easy to just sit down and read, but whenever I do get the chance, I pick up my Kindle and get in the zone. It’s so nice because I can just sit up in bed and read without having to squint my eyes or without having to turn on extra lights. The Kindle has made it such a dream to read.
Like I said, our stress and anxiety levels are most likely through the roof, so to make the most out of my quarantine, I bought myself a weighted blanket and it’s incredible. It just feels like I’m getting a really long hug. So grateful for this one!
The other night, I did a Golden Girls puzzle and I’m not kidding, the next day I went to go link it for you guys on my Instagram stories and it was completely sold out. SO I found a different Golden Girls puzzle that is available so that you guys can have a little healthy distraction throughout your day.
