I typically do not enjoy my birthday because of built-up anxiety and wanting to make the day perfect but a fun fact is that my 28th birthday was the very first day of lockdown.
It was the beginning of some of the best years. I finally had time to breathe and sit and create and sleep. I got engaged on my birthday and married a year later. For many, many, many people quarantine was a struggle but for me, it was a special bittersweet time where I felt happy and weightless like never before.
I received two cards from two very dear friends on this day. They’re still some of my favorite letters I have ever received.
Looking at this brings me back to when quarantine started, where everything was uncertain but all I knew was what I had in my life and my house was good.
