2 months after the fire that changed everything

I spent a few minutes trying to come up with a name for this blog today.  Burning Down the House seems pretty appropriate.  In late January my house burned down, a total devastating loss. My husband and I were able to get out of the house with the clothes on my back, nothing more. Within a few days I had gotten my hands on a camera and started snapping off photos with the intent of sharing them at some point. 

The past couple of months have been spent cleaning up the site of the fire along with starting to rebuild our lives one step at a time.   And trying to stay sane which is a job in itself.  

Loosing everything all of a sudden out of no where is really a life changing experience.  I've never been through a disaster before.  The absolute worse thing of this disaster is loosing all of our furkids.  All nine of our cats were trapped in the fire, none were saved.  They haunt my thoughts and my dreams. Some had been with us for a number of years and some were rescued within the last few years.  Each one was so very special, I plan to include tributes to each one here.




  1. It's been a journey. Of course now I have that song going through my head......

  2. Lol! So many songs I like have to do with burning and fire.
