2020 has pretty much been a crap show. From the pandemic to one bad headline to another. But despite all the turmoil, there were some pretty awesome moments at home. For me, it’s been a gift to be able to work from home and spend this time with my daughter at this stage of her development and I’ve documented every moment, taking pictures constantly.
