WE ARE A MIXED BAG
Today we remember the last time we saw our little green house in the woods. I snapped these photos as we evacuated, not knowing our fate as the fiery beast closed in around us.
At the time, it was the greatest loss we'd suffered in our lives. Since that day, we've had depressing lows and exhilarating highs. We've had our failures and have accomplished things we wouldn't have imagined prior. Life forced us to dream up new dreams and fight for something greater than the pile of ashes and hundreds of dead trees we were left with. On this 4 year anniversary, we are a mixed bag of feelings....proud that we've toughed out this unconventional path we chose, but discouraged that have not completely "recovered" yet.
