I know with my last few posts it’s more than apparent that I’m in full swing for Spring. It started back in February for me while I planted hundreds and thousands of herbs, geraniums, and other beautiful plant babies. I’ve since added new items to the shop, got vaccinated, had three interviews and articles come out about made by laura lee, paid off my truck, and still found time to enjoy being back in New England. Sometimes the hustle and bustle can be a little exhausting, but it’s all so rewarding that I don’t really mind.
In fact, it’s amazing to look back at the little plant babies in February, versus now. Hanging baskets are now cascading from their pots, herbs are towering over their little containers waiting to be cooked with, and the geranium flowers are almost fluorescent against their backdrop of green leaves. I’m grateful each and every day to not only be playing in the dirt, but also still be able to maintain made by laura lee.
Admittedly, it’s not sunshine and rainbows all the time, because you can’t have those without a little rain. But even on those days that are overcast and overwhelming, it’s always nice to know that sun will always come back. I know I’m not the only one that gets that feeling like they’ve bitten off more than they can chew, whether you’re still working from home, homeschooling from home, waiting for work to start back up, or really whatever is going on in the midst of waiting for this damn pandemic to pass, you’ve got someone there for you. Even if you think you don’t, you do. Reach out no matter how hard. Hang in there.
We’ve all told someone to hang in there. The fact of the matter is that I tell myself that everyday. I tell my friends to hang in there often as well. We’re all hanging in there together and I made this “Hang In There” Hoop for a friend to express just that. You can share it with someone you care about as well. Let’s keep being there for one another, act with kindness and compassion, and get through this together.
