Quarantined life, how you have made life so interesting for us, am I right?!
We had big plans for our spring this year to travel to Disney World with our kids to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary with a small vow renewal and portrait session. When Covid-19 hit, we knew that plans were going to change, and they sure did.
So, in true Collins Family fashion, we put on our positive pants and replanned our trip to the end of June, thinking that would be suffice, boy were we wrong. Again, here were were, having to replan our vow renewal again. Thankfully our couple of vendors have been absolutely amazing and we have yet again scheduled another date, this time for November. So fingers crossed that is a go!
But, in the meantime, we decided to take a portion of those funds we had for our Disney World trip and decided to do a renovation on our kitchen, since we had been talking about it for years.
Here we were at 1am on a Tuesday, sitting in the kitchen talking about how disappointed we were that all our plans had changed and been cancelled multiple times, that we decided to do something to make us happy. In that moment, Ryan got up and started taking off all the cupboard doors and said ” let’s just do it!”.
After years of asking, it was happening, and let me tell you, I was not about to stop him. We spent the next 10 days making countless online orders to Home Depot & Lowe’s to get supplies. We cleaned, sanded, and painted out hearts out. It was definitely a labor of love and I am so happy that quarantined life turned this little nook of our home into space we can appreciate.
As our 10 year wedding anniversary approached we talked about how we would spend the day. Not being able to do the plans we originally wanted or being able to go out for dinner, we agreed to do a fun photo session in our newly done Kitchen. Seemed like the perfect backdrop.
I wore my wedding dress that I did 10 years prior. I held the same bouquet and we danced around the kitchen and had the most fun. While this may not have been the anniversary we had hoped for, it was one we will remember forever.
I hope you enjoy a little peek into our quarantined anniversary session.
