Life in The Fairmount – Our Porchtrait Project – Meet the Knight’s over in the 1600 block of College Ave.
Meet the Knight’s over in the 1600 block of College Ave. I love having Lindsay and Jared for neighbors, they live just a couple of doors down from me and I was so excited to take their Porchtrait!
When I asked Lindsey my Porchtrait Project question’s about life during Shelter In Place, here is what she had to say….
What’s been the most difficult thing for you about shelter in place/social distancing?
Balancing childcare with remote work has been incredibly challenging although Jared and I are extremely grateful to have jobs that allow us to work remotely. Our children are too young to really understand what is going on but they all have celebrated birthdays during this pandemic and celebrating without family and friends physically present has been so sad for us as parents. The kids are pretty happy though because they still get cake!
What do you miss the most during Shelter in Place?
We miss the Fort Worth Central Library- our kids love to be read to and we have been reading the same books for two months now. But more than anything we really miss our family and friends.
What do you look forward to the most?
It is our sincere hope that life doesn’t “go back to normal” at the end of this but rather people use the exposure by the pandemic of inequalities in our society and feel energized to make some big changes. We optimistically look forward to the potential for change.
How long have you lived in Fairmount?
We have been here for 3 years- first in an apartment on Alston where we moved for a few months after living in a 310 square foot tiny house. We loved it here so much we found our house on College and decided to stay in the neighborhood!
Share your favorite thing about living in Fairmount?
We love how unique each home is and the diversity of our neighbors. Most of all we love being able to walk to so many of the places we want to go.
What is your favorite business in Fairmount? (And why)
We love the Grand Cru and the Fort for food and drinks and in terms of other business we love 6th Ave Homes because they have helped us find such wonderful places to live.
What kind of work do you do?
I work at TCU teaching leadership. Jared is a middle school social studies teacher and volleyball coach at Fort Worth Country Day School
