Tell me about your evening routine! And your morning one too!

We wake up very early, but I like to stay in bed just a bit longer once I'm awake. Then I'll brush my hair and rinse my face with cold water and put on some cream and this Vitamin E and coconut balm that I love. Then I go to the kitchen and make espresso in the Bialetti. If it's a cold morning, I love to light the fireplace.

Recently nighttime has included lots of cooking together, Susucaru, and discussing plans for a green house or vegetable garden.

What keeps you sane?

I've been talking on the phone with the people I'm close to all the time, as well as writing post cards. It's been so important and grounding everyday.

*

What's one thing you are grateful for?

I am grateful for being able to quarantine in my own home, where I feel safe and happy. As well as being able to see and speak with my friends and family everyday, even if it is through a screen for now.

Anything else to share?

I love you Dane!
