Our lives were a little simpler and our appreciation a lot greater. My babies benefited from endless days outdoors exploring the "trash" in nature that is often swept up too quickly. The neighborhood came to life and people shared meals, and sunsets while their kids played in the street. The 4th largest city in our great nation slowed time and lived in friendlier world for about a week and a half. I'm hoping that some of these revelations stick around for my family and friends for a little longer.
Here are some snip-its of our adventure.
This is what we saw and heard for about 5 hours.
Camping out in the hallway.
Checking out the winds after the eye passed us.
My plant made it!!! AND she gave a big 'ole HELL YA to Ike with this beautiful bloom the day after.
