    I'm terribly sorry to hear about your and your family's loss. I can't imagine what you all are going through... but at the same time am glad to hear that you are all safe and have each-other for support to get through this. Sending love and pixie dust from Florida. ❤️

    Im so sorry to hear about your houses. Happy that you are all safe though! If you need anything just let us know. Also would totally buy some pins if you need to sell. I cant imagine loosing almost everything you own. Like I said, if you need anything just let us know!!!

    I can only imagine how strange and stressful that must be. What a great loss. I hope the day comes quickly when you and your family can start making memories in a new home, and in the meantime, I hope you have everything you need. If there's anything we can do, just say the word. :hug:

    Ads prevented me from responding to this at the same time as posting my “wanted” thread but just wanted to reemphasise thanking each and every one for your kind words and thoughts <3 :hug:

    Thank you guys so, so much. I am so relieved that we are all ok too- it’s something I am grateful for each and every day. <3

    I think right now the hardest part is trying to get a sense of normalcy or even understand what normal is. I wouldn’t think about it much if I were just a bystander to the situation, and now being in the situation, I don’t know how to even describe how it feels. It’s just kind of like life goes on around you and you keep thinking “yeah I should be doing that” but we can’t really until we know where we are going from here. One day at a time has never been an easy concept for me, now I’m getting a crash course in really taking it to heart. :doh:

    And a little tip to pass along: take Home pictures and take them often. My mom thankfully did that a lot in my house but I’m sad that I didn’t do that much in my own room. I’ll be sure to next time <3


    thanks so much again everyone :hug:

    I haven’t been on in quite some time. I’m so sorry to hear about your house. As long as you all got out safe, things can be replaced,lives can’t. God Bless You All!

    Thank you so much :hug: I know, I really can’t imagine how it would have been if I didn’t have my family with me and everything that has always supported us. We are doing well and even tho we still don’t have a perm temporary place to live (tho we might have some leads as of yesterday!) we are working on just taking one day at a time and have not been without a place to rest each night. And we are looking forward to welcoming my sister’s little one this next Friday (my first nephew!!) so it’s not all rain clouds by any means :)

    thanks so so much for keeping us in mind and wishing all the best to everyone for whatever life is throwing at you! Everyone is going through something <3

    Happier update : we are all doing well and looks like all eleven of us have found housing for six months. But of most wonderful news... my sister had her baby today and I am a happy aunt to my first nephew. :)

    Thanks again everyone and just thought it’d be kind to end these updates on a happier note. Wishing everyone the best <3
