There were a lot of moving parts to capture for this Porchtrait! That’s what made it so fun! 

When I asked Alexy 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? 

The most difficult part of shelter in place is explaining to the kids they can no longer run up and hug neighbors, friends, and family while on our walks. And explaining that we won’t be able to see friends and family for a long while. We really miss social gatherings with our friends and family. 

What do you miss the most during Shelter in Place?

Gatherings with friends and family and traveling. 

What do you look forward to the most? 

Being able to just go wherever we want to without worrying about too many people being in one place. Parks, the zoo, the museum. 

How long have you lived in the Fairmount? 

Coming up on 3 years. 

Share your favorite thing about living in the Fairmount?

I love that Fairmount is a place where your neighbors are your friends and everyone seems to look out for each other for the most part. I love the sense of community and the walkability of the neighborhood. There’s so much to do in Fort Worth and everything is so close. We also love taking the family for bike rides! 

What is your favorite business in the Fairmount? 

There are SO many and different things to love about each. 

What kind of work do you do? 

Mat has his irrigation and hardscaping business and I stay at home with our three kids and our dogs. 

What’s been the best activity you’ve done during social distancing? 

The best activity we have done during social distancing is hang out in our yard more and go for walks. 

What are you thankful for? 

I am so thankful for the extra time I’ve gotten to spend with Amelia. She’s in pre-K at De Zavala. I think she’s really enjoyed the slow down and so have we.
