I haven’t really known what to post the past few days. Sometimes I feel like there’s an elephant sitting on my chest because of everything that’s going on in the world and with our family. Beaches and pools are closed now. We can’t see friends. We’re having to move and fly across the world in the midst of all of this. (Not that we want to but we don’t have a choice. ) But then I’m reminded that while so many huge things have changed the very best things haven’t. I still can nurse my baby girl and my heart still melts when she looks up at me and smiles. I can still cook dinner and sit outside with my husband after the kids have gone to bed, just listening to the palm trees dance in the breeze. I can still call my parents and text old friends to catch up. So much uncertainty but maybe we’re getting back to basics and remembering how to appreciate the little things. That’s how I’m trying to think of it, anyway. 💙 my striped rash guard is so great for throwing on over a one piece or a bikini for a little extra sun protection. It’s normally $49.95 but is on sale right now for $29.97! I sized down (normally a small most places but it runs big so I’m wearing the XS ) It’s linked on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app or just tap the link in my profile and then the “shop recent Instagrams” button. http://liketk.it/2LUnd #liketkit @liketoknow .it #LTKspring #LTKswim

My in-laws are in Beaufort SC, not as beautiful as Hawaii but still nice. 💕

With so much bad news, it’s hard to see the good! Just had to do the same thing here and realize all the good things we have ❤️

I agree with all of this! So important to find the good right now because it feels overwhelming

Hang in there! We made our move from the UK back to the US on Saturday/Sunday. Just take things one day at a time! ❤️

Beaufort is gorgeous! I worked at the Island Packet after college and love that area. Btw - are ko’olina lagoons still open?? It’s the only place my 3yo will go in...

So much truth to what you’re saying. We’re moving this summer as well. It’s all a bit daunting, but yes we’re getting back to the basics and Mother Earth is getting a small break from a significant amount of pollution. Just trying to find the positive in this.

I hope this isn’t too personal but roughly what size are you in this picture? I think I remember you being about my size (5’5 ~130lbs). I’m trying to figure out what size rash guard to get for this summer while I’m postpartum (baby is 2 weeks old) and nursing.

We're also moving during the outbreak for my husband's job, but luckily we can drive from point A to point B, hopefully without stopping if we try really hard, and then pick up isolation when we arrive. It still adds a huge amount of stress to already difficult and scary times. I'll pray life is gentle on you, and for grace while you're in transition. In the meantime, I'm just trying to breathe in and out all day long, like Tom Hanks says in Sleepless in Seattle :-)
