Quarantine Birthdays & Other Life Celebrations



So the world has thrown us a curveball but that does not mean that we stop celebrating! A few weeks ago we drove to Jersey to be part of a birthday "parade" for my 7 year old niece. We decorated out car and met other family members on the corner of her block and all drove up at the same time. 
It is moments like these that we will never forget, it's the way that we adapt and figure out how to celebrate even through hardships.
