going coastal

Let the back logging begin!

I saw a great meme a few days ago that said, “This week has been the longest year ever”, and it made me laugh…mainly because the past few weeks of homeschooling and toddlerhood-ing has been r.e.a.l.

Are we oscillating between Martha Stewart level crafting and wearing no pants for 48 hours? Yep. But we’re also slowly… s l o w l y getting this daily rhythm thing.

Currently, am I showered? Laughable! No. Have I eaten a properly prepared meal? Also, a big zero. BUT, while my youngest napped a deliciously long nap and my oldest Minecrafted his heart out, I managed to plunk my butt down and sort and edit folders and folders of media. And it was amazing! Could I have been deep cleaning our abusively neglected master bathroom? You betcha. But this right here is how I self-love, and after the past year of a week this mama chose to go with it.

Enjoy these images of brighter, warmer, freer days from our trip to beautiful Oregon, where we were blessed to take an impromptu road trip and hit up Portland and Haystack Rock at Canon Beach over a two day period while visiting BC. These images definitely make staring at the same four walls a little bit easier to cope with, and they give me something to hang on to for a future beyond social distancing.

I hope everyone out there is staying healthy and safe. And for all of those who know our McKinnon clan personally, please don’t hesitate to reach out for support or help if you need it. We are all in this together.
