We are thankful...

That everyone is okay. Big thank you to Atlanta Fire Department!! ENGINE 6, ENGINE 10, ENGINE 16, ATL Police, Paramedics, Battalion Chiefs and everyone else. You saved our house.







Thank you to Shay and Brooke for the pics and for letting us stay the night.

Yeah--it was insane. 2 alarm fire. Luckily, only one side of our house was really damaged. Atlanta Fire Department is amazing.

Oh my!!!! Such a close call. I don't think cutting back on the fire department is a good idea.

My heart just dropped to the floor! Now the post before this makes sense!

Oh, when will you be back in the house? My friend in Galveston lost her 1900's house to that hurricane last year, and she said the walls were covered in so much sewage, and it is just sitting there, so I hope you get back on your feet soon...hugs
