Safe!


We are safe with no damage to our home.
 Thank you for your emails, your prayers and thoughts during this terrible Hurricane Sandy.

 We have no power but hope it will be restored
 by the end of the week.

Please keep the many other people
 who have suffered so much loss in your prayers.

I will be back next week...hopefully power will be restored...
and will announce the winner of the purple bottle giveaway soon.

So grateful...
Take care, Laura

I'm hearing some terrible stories, that sadly aren't getting the media attention they need. A mother whose 2 young boys were washed away while she tried to hold onto them:( I have a feeling many more stories will be coming out later on.

So glad you're okay! Being w/o power is frustrating but, in the big picture, not too bad. Hugs!

So glad you are safe! My cousin who lives in NYC posted on facebook no damage but no power either. Hopefully it is sooner rather than later that you get your power back!

So happy that you are okay.

Have you had the 'pull everything out of the fridge and eat before it ruins' feast yet? The food spoilage issue was the hardest for me personally....that and the lack of hot water:)

I hope that you are holding up and am sending warm wishes to those that were less fortunate than you and yours.

So glad you are safe AND no damage!!
No power is not so bad when you think of those poor people in the whole New York/New Jersay area.
On another note, tomorrow is Fancy Flea. We are shoppers this year and looking forward to it, NO STRESS!!
Hope you are warm....

Dear Laura,
I'm so glad you all are okay and safe. Just catching up on blog posts....I was out of the country. Disturbing to find out many people are still without power. Hope yours is back.
Take care,
