With All The Beauty Also Comes Worry

Hi friends!
Some of the best days for us as a family
 have been days spent at the beach.
These were taken during a few fall days on
Dune Rd in Westhampton, NY.
It is truly the best time of the year,
it is quiet,
all of the summer people have left
it is so peaceful.

That is us, the tall house on the left side
(sorry for the blur, it was the zoom).
We bought this home 1 1/2 years ago.
We lived with family for almost 5 years
after selling our home in Colorado & SAVED.
I will tell you my husband is much better than I but….
non the less we saved for a long time.
We NEVER planned on buying a home so close to the water but…
it was LOVE at first sight.
  But with all the beauty of living so close to the
bay & ocean also comes worry.
And I am hoping & praying for the best.
We are being ordered to evacuate.
I wanted to share these beautiful images,
 I think party because I wanted remind myself 
of why we live here.
Because right now, I am not so sure:)!
We will go to my sister’s house & ride this out.
Be back when I can:).
Stay safe,
