Hello Harlow & Grey Family,
We hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe. We’re hanging in there, homeschooling our kids and juggling household and work responsibilities as mothers and small business owners.
There’s no sugar coating it. This is a tough time for all of us. This pandemic has caused us to physically distance ourselves from one another, but it has also made us realize just how interconnected we are as humans. Our products have always promoted connectivity through physical social gatherings. Now that we have this moment in history to pause, let’s take inventory of how important the people in our lives are and how often we were able to have truly meaningful connections before this all happened.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
Let’s be still, reflect, and perhaps consider resetting our priorities. We've come up with some stirring questions to help us process this experience and wanted to share them with you. We'd like to invite you to download our free printable “My Story: In the Time of Corona Journal.” We encourage you to take this time to examine and document how you're feeling and how you would want to move forward. And for our fellow parents who are struggling to stay sane, we're in the same boat! The struggle is so real! We’ve created a “Shelter-in-Place Planner” for you and invite you to use this tool to navigate this new normal with your young kids.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
Well, let’s face it, no one is throwing a party anytime soon. Our sales are down significantly, and we don't know if there's a light at the end of the tunnel for us. We've gone back and forth over the past few weeks on the type of content to post and products to promote, but nothing feels right. And as we're experiencing this downturn, we’ve realized that our wish is just to connect with all of you.
Let's not let social distancing keep us apart. Instead, let's draw on social solidarity and commit to being kinder. We’re all going through this hot mess together. Call your best friend and thank him or her for lifting you up! Tell your parents you love them for all the parties they threw for you as a kid! Journal how much your loved ones mean to you during this uncertain time! We will come out of this better than we were. Together, we can. Together, we will!
Sending you love and warm thoughts!
