the picture I almost didn't post

**this post has been sitting in my draft for waaaaaaay too long 

last week was St. Patrick's Day and while us, just like most of the world, we were hunkered down at home. It was decent weather so we may our way outside for a shamrock scavenger hunt around our neighborhood.

things have been tense, things have been crazy. I've never seen anything like this before where schools are closed, restaurants are closed, churches are closed, all professional and recreational sports are on hold - you all know what I'm talking about. We have had some really good days and there have been days I lost my temper

St Patrick's Day happened to be a really good day and it ended with a really yummy dinner where no one fought, not even for a second. It was so pleasant and fun and we took a picture to document.

I of course wanted to share something other than the coronavirus on social media so I went to post, but then I paused. I looked less than perfect, our kids had some food in bowls some food on napkins, our plates are just plastic blue ones from Target, we didn't have a Pinterest-worthy tablescape setup and I felt like that is what people would focus on if I posted.

Then I told myself that was literally insane and who the f*ck cares what other people think! We were having a great night and I love my family more than anything, and especially in these times I am proud of that and will always focus on that. Turns out people liked the photo and I really could care less about the ones that didn't.
