Weird Times – Bright Spirits

First of all, let me say I do take COVID-19 very seriously. Myself, along with my family have been self-quarantined and have not left our house/neighborhood for a week so far! These times are uncertain and I wanted to find a way to cheer up my neighborhood. Little did I know yesterday ➡️ when I posted a few sneak peeks to Facebook ⬅️that so many people around the nation and the world for that matter needed this right now.

Yesterday I gave my neighbors a 5-hour notice that I was going to walk around and photograph their families (from a VERY safe distance of course!) I let everyone do their own thing and I absolutely loved capturing these photos. We all had a good laugh.

These are just a few of my wonderful neighbors and I think we all can agree that we need good neighbors right now.

***Speaking of good neighbors, thank you Courtney for assisting!!!

I need to brag on my neighbors for a moment. I know many of these people personally and have seen them giving their time, money, and resources for Tornado relief here in Tennessee before the quarantine.

I would say go to your neighbor and give them a hug, but that’s not something we can do right now. We can still find ways to be a community and lift each other up. This was my small way of doing that…
Stay tuned, if there is more quarantine, there will most likely be more photos to come.

    Awesomeness! Thanks for brightening our day. People are putting their flags out. Waving from a distance. Offering help to neighbors. If we survive this thing hopefully the world will at least have a fresh perspective.

I am not a photographer but I have been encouraging my friends to share pics of their #coronawear I like active wear but I’m it’s the outfits you wear when you are in quarantine and know no one will see you 😄 I posted your link as I loved seeing all the people in your neighbourhood rocking their #covidstyle
