This quarantine has been rough on all off us. Some worse than others but we’ve all been affected in some way. Last night we had a virtual birthday party for one of my best friends. She turned the big 30!
We always do something together for our birthdays and this year I didn’t want things to be any different.
So, created an invitation and sent it to her to invite whoever she wanted to a ZOOM call.
It was a night that I don’t think we’ll forget anytime soon. We had people from all over the world. (She loves to travel and bring home strangers. lol)
From Australia to Arizona and Missouri to Minnesota we all gathered on this video call to celebrate with someone we love so much. Friends and Family who would not have had the opportunity to be with us in person got to pop on the call and wish her a happy birthday.
It may not have been the birthday party we expected but it was so much fun.
We took turns asking each other questions (group calls can get a little crazy if everyone starts talking at once) about how Quarantine was affecting us; the good, the bad, the ugly.
We shared memories of past times we’ve shared together and created new memories.
