I'm back . . .
barely, but I'm finally posting! So sorry, but things have been hectic. I've had alot of things going on with my family (and a few boxes to pack and ship)!
I got notes from many of you about the weather here on Friday. It was very scary, but we are all okay. When our sirens went off and the hail started falling, we took cover in a closet in the middle of the house. It didn't last for very long though. We were out of power for most of the afternoon, but this was a small inconvenience compared to what our neighbors were going through.
I couldn't believe the damage I saw - and literally only a few miles away from us. I always thought that having an all brick home was an advantage in this type of weather, but one neighborhood where 8 people were killed was filled with large, all brick homes, many of which had NOTHING left. It has been very humbling.
Both of the boys ended up in our bed that night. Noah did not actually go to sleep until about 3a.m. He really has a hard time with those things.
I want to give you a sneak peak of the May kit, but I am waiting to make sure I am definitely going to have something before I show it. I will be sure to post this week!
Also have an exciting preview to share about June!!
More very soon!!
Pin It!

You're such a tease!

Sonya said...

How scary! I'm glad you and your family are ok.... {{{HUGS}}} That is just devastating I'm sure, so hard for those that lost so much. :(

just want to say how happy i am that you and your family are ok. living in earthquake country is nothing compared to tornados, and i did experience one when i was attending college in ohio. not fun and, i can't imagine what it's like to have to explain it to your children.

Got my kits today! Yippee. I don't have time for them tonight, but I hopefully will tomorow!

Jenn from Mass said...

Isn't Mother Nature a force to be reckoned with? I am so glad you are all okay...it must have been so scary for everyone. One good thing about living in the Northeast is that we rarely encounter weather like that. Snowstorms and hurricanes, but no tornadoes.

Glad you're all fine hun and very much looking to the new peak!!!

Julie said...

so glad that you are back and fine!!

Stef said...

Yeah, we're right up the road... folks above us in KY and below us in Nashville were getting quite beaten up, but thankfully Clarksville was spared (not so lucky back in 99). Glad to hear you're fine too!

Got my April kits today - lovely! Can't wait to play with the stuff - and see what you have up your sleeve!

Hi Jenny!
I agree. Went through nothing compared to our neighbors in the other counties. I always hate torando season, and can't wait for it to be over.
I'm excited to take your class at the end of April at CK convention. : )
