I got a taste of life before quarantine recently when my husband and I attended a private event at the Botanic Gardens. Although I’ve been there many times before, this visit felt so exciting. It was like a cheat day from a 5 month long strict diet of being stuck at home. We are still trying to stay at home as much as possible, but made this exception because we would be outdoors with a limited number of people. There were so few people there that, at times, it seemed like we were the only ones in the garden. I almost forgot we were in quarantine if it weren’t for the face masks. It was the perfect ‘hold me over’ until this quarantine is over.
