With all that is going on in the world right now, it is easy to be negative and sad. Due to this pandemic, I have had to postpone my wedding and will not be doing the usual graduation ceremony for my MSW. Although I was sad about it, I have chosen to look at all the positives. This is something we have no control over! With being quarantined, I have had more time to spend with my fiancé and cat! I have also had time to focus on the things I normally don’t have time to do. Some of these things are reading a book, gardening, going on walks, and relaxing! We often have trivia nights with our friends as well!

We will get through this time stronger and with more love! I am lucky that my family is healthy and safe! Hang in there Rachael’s first-week family!

Julia, fiancé Dan, and cat Louie
