I'm just gonna say it . . . I am tired, my heart hurts for those around us
I am also so incredibly thrilled to live here.
For you see there is BEAUTY even in the midst of the most horrific storm.

I came to the realization last night that if hour home was going to go - I might as well donate most of our food to Care & Share. So the kids and I packed up our entire Yukon XL with food including cans, popcorn, drinks, toiletries, paper towels, toilet paper . . . basically all of our extra supplies.
What happens if our home does NOT burn?
There are 32,500 people evacuated from their homes.
This is what last night looked like (I gotta figure out how to photograph at nights)
And this morning we woke up to find a whole neighborhood gone.
(not my photo)
We are still in a holding pattern, and in shock for this city that we love so much. Please pray for those around us. We live in an incredible city - care & share had a line of 100 cars dropping of items when I went!!
And as an additional punch in the gut - we found out our LID . . . you know for the paperwork we sent to China on 5/30 . . . Yeah we found out it was 6/20?!?! On our Facebook group there were people DTC on 5/20 with a LID of 5/21. Talk about wanting to just sit down and cry.
