It blows my mind to think that when the pandemic started we had just listed the house with a realtor, and now three months later, we are living in an apartment while our home goes up. So much has changed in our world and for our family. Going from almost two acres down to an apartment has been interesting, but we're enjoying being renters for the time being. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we have plenty of space to run and play at the land when things start to feel a little tight.
One thing that's been a constant for us during this season of crazy has been our bonfires at the land. We burned a ton of stuff while we were moving and now we get to do the same with scrap lumber. Last weekend when the kids got back from Nanna's house, we loaded up everything we needed for a bonfire and had the very best time listening to music and spending time together. The kids pretty much want to do it every weekend now.
Even has the world starts to reopen, we're realizing it truly is the small stuff that means the most and provides us with best entertainment. I hope we will always carry this "secret" with us, especially as we return to our "new normal."
