Before my brother and I moved away from home, my family used to have barbecues pretty regularly during the summer months. With the COVID-19 pandemic, that routine has been shaken up a bit until today. Since things pandemic-wise are getting a bit calmer where we live, we decided to have a barbecue today to celebrate my cousins’ birthdays. I have to say it was actually really nice to reconnect with aunts, uncles, and cousins. I used to always take gatherings like these for granted. It’s amazing (in a good way) how much the pandemic has put things into perspective for me.

A family barbecue.

I forgot to photograph the meat because I was too hungry.

Even though I worked for most of the weekend, it was nice to unwind for a few hours to eat, drink, talk, and laugh with my family. I’m looking forward to starting another week of WordPress domination with Kinsta tomorrow!
