Escaping Into The Fall

Things have been tough all over the world in the past year. Some more than others but we have all felt the stress from the changes around us. Trying to do things "normally" has been challenging for all of us. For people like me who are high risk, the challenges we usually face became even more challenging. But taking the right precautions has been a priority for us. 

A few weeks ago I decided we needed to try and do something outside of our new norm. So with masks in hand we visited our local farm and attended a beautiful event called The Fall Escape. It was a chance to do something that made me and my family feel a little more a part of the world.  There were heaps of flowers everywhere and my children decided to wear their Halloween costumes for fun. We took photos, and laughed, and acted silly. Despite the masks and the social distancing, the day out really helped us feel like we were doing something special.

It was nice to doll up in my new fall dress and wear my "new-to-me" vintage cardigan. And even nicer to watch my children do something fun outside of our house. It lifted up our spirits individually and as a family. Even though family fun and outings have had to be altered, just doing this really made us all appreciate moments together even more. 

Everyone has had to change their pace and how they go about their days. But if you get a moment where you can just take a deep breathe and put the stress aside, it really is so good for our well-being. I don't know if we will be able to do something like this again. The colder weather is making its way to New York and so many things are still up in the air. But I will remember this day as the day we got to escape into the fall.
