The world has certainly changed in 7 days. I'm having a hard time trying to process it all. Brides have rescheduled, family is quarantined, and the first of our friends has fallen ill and yet, life continues. We wake up, shower, get dressed, answer emails, my husband goes to work in his office, I blog from the dining room table, and Lucy is blissfully unaware that anything is REALLY wrong. She knows that stores are closed and we can't go to the library but other than that, we continue to swing and hike and play all day.
A few weeks ago, I made a DIY rainbow for our living room (and blogged about it over on Julia Jane Kids). It was for St. Patrick's day but has become so much more than that. We decided to keep it up because it is a symbol of hope. A symbol that, one day, this storm will be over. Yesterday, after finding a hashtag on instagram #letsallbewell, that was being used under images of rainbows in windows, we decided to move ours. We moved it to our window and it now shines brightly for all to see, a beacon of hope shining on our once busy street.
It was only up for five minutes when a car pulled over and shouted, "your house is so happy!" and smiled as they drove off. Mission accomplished.
I really love how it looks like a watercolor painting behind our sheer curtains.

The post on Julia Jane Kids details how we did it but here's a link to the only material you need (amazon affiliate link). If you try it out, be sure to tag us on instagram or email over a picture! I'd love to see your rainbow of hope!
