I apologize in advance in the delay of this newsletter. 
We live on the coast is South Carolina and have spent the week preparing for the pending hurricane.

No matter where it lands in the United States, devastation will be high. 
Friends with livestock cannot evacuate, hotels are booked, gas stations are out of gas and shelves are empty. 

This too shall pass and the world will continue to spin, but until then- we will stay busy with our preps. 

We do the best we can, help those in need, keep our faith and our hope. 
It's all we can do. 

Southern' Sayin' Of The Week:

"Worryin' is like sittin' in a rockin' chair-
it will give ya somethin' to do but git ya knowehere"

Embrace our faults and failures. Own them. But above all, allow yourself GRACE. 

Our goal is to invite you to join us from conception to completion and form a Community of like-minded people to share this adventure with.

Two Week Meal Plan For Disasters- With FREE Printable!
Banks closed early before the hurricane, store shelves were emptied, gas stations were out of gas and the National Guard closed the bridges coming to our home.
