As we approach one full year of stay home orders and social distancing, it has me thinking a lot about the importance of not waiting. This can of course be applied to meaningful moments like not waiting to make time for your loved ones or not waiting to tell someone how much they mean to you, but it can also change the way you think about seemingly trivial everyday moments - like not waiting to break out the nice serve-ware, not waiting to wear the new dress, or not waiting to pop the champagne. Everyone is struggling right now in their own ways, and while maintaining perspective and gratitude is always important, it doesn't mean that you can't still try to find joy and beauty in little everyday moments.
A few ways I'm going to try to put this to practice in the coming months is to spend more time outdoors (gardening, dining al fresco, reading in the park), setting the table for weekend dinners, and reducing clutter to create more thoughtful spaces in my own home.
Above are a few special pieces on my wish list that I had been thinking wouldn't be worth purchasing until dinner parties with friends and family were on the horizon, but I'm now thinking "why wait?" - they might just be the perfect way to make any ordinary weekend feel extra special.
