  1. We were talking about doing something like this! I love that C can list all of the shows you like.

  2. Aww that's really fun! I love that they didn't get your favorite movie, but all three were so different! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. This is so sweet, I just did this with my husband this weekend and plan to make it a blog post. Soooo sweet!!

  4. Sarita, I can relate to SO much of your 'Currentlies'! My oldest turns 16 in 10 days. This morning I sent an email request to special adults in her life--friends, family, fave teachers, coaches, our minister--and I asked them to send her a handwritten note or letter (a few sentences or a whole page--whatever works!). She's had a challenging go of things the past several months--none of which have to do with COVID-19. I asked them if they'd share a time when they were brave; how they overcame something OR embraced something; or something they see in her that she might not see in herself. I told them my goal is to collect 16 letters to give her on her 16th birthday. I got so many quick "I'm on it!" replies that it brought tears to my eyes. That was one way I feel I can make this unique milestone celebration special--not only this year, but any time she rereads those letters.
    And here's to finding solitude wherever we can :)


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
