MME Butterfly Mini Album

Good morning everyone. It's Carissa here from Happily Ever Paper Crafter with a mini album to share with you today. 

My hearts go out to all the people on the east coast suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I see the pictures of people homes and neighborhoods completely destroyed on television and it seems unreal. How can this happen? Are these people getting help? How can I help?

When I reflect on these tragedies, it makes me think "How did these people prepare?" Most people left their homes and evacuated to safety. If that was me, what would I take if I knew my home was in the path of destruction? I have very few valuables that I would be lost without; some family heirlooms and some jewelry. But mostly I would worry about taking my photos, my memories. I would grab my laptop and scrapbooks, leaving my favorite jeans and crafty supplies behind, and save my families pictures. I pray that the families that lost so much had enough time to make some hard choices, and grab what meant the most to them before their homes washed away.

This week I created a mini album of photos taken in the last 6 months of my family. I am giving it as a gift to my amazing neighbor. She is the loveliest woman in the world. She comes over to visit, loves spending time with my kids, and sometimes comes over right before dinner so she can hold my baby while I finish cooking. Isn't that just the sweetest! And my children just adore her too.
