Being pregnant during the Covid pandemic has been one of the most challenging seasons of my life. I am grateful for loved ones, friends, and colleagues who have helped me make the most of it, with virtual baby showers, surprises at my door step, mailboxes full of love, and by taking extra precautions like masking up, sending virtual love notes, and picking up the slack when I was under the weather. The isolation is hard on everyone, and we’ve chosen to focus on the silver lining of extra family bonding time before the baby comes. I’m especially grateful to have a supportive and loving partner in @jerrodgalanin
, who has done an amazing job of taking care of our family, and of nursing me back to health while I dealt with hyperemesis gravidarum. If our son is anything like his father, he will be kind, sensitive, strong, good-natured and big-hearted. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and our family and our businesses through this season! I wish you all good health and love.
