For the last 10 days, I have been sheltering in place in the Bay Area. I know that many of you are doing the same thing around the world. The last three days the entire State of California has been on lockdown. Life has changed drastically in the blink of an eye.
Between securing food and paper goods (aka toilet paper) for my family, home schooling my children, and disinfecting my house from top to bottom, I have been watching an unending stream of real time news.
I wish to thank each and every person who has reached out to me via email or social media to make sure that my family is safe. I have gotten messages from all over the world. I am so grateful for my Birkenstock friends and wish you and your family safety during this pandemic.
Thanks to my blog, I have had the good fortune of meeting wonderful people all over the world. One of the most wonderful people that I have met is Sandy, the owner of Sandy's Birkenstock Boutique, in Australia. While we have yet to meet in person, since we live a world apart, we stay connected via social media. Much like me, Sandy is hunkering down in her home and keeping her family safe.
Since she had a little extra time on her hands, I asked Sandy to do something that I rarely do. I requested that Sandy write a guest blog. She and I have been communicating for months about a special project that she has been working on. There is no better person to share this with you then Sandy herself! Sandy is not only an expert on all things Birkenstock, she is a talented writer.
It is time to take a short break from the constant stream of horrific news and read something light-hearted and fun.
Below is Sandy's article. Enjoy.
