This week has been quite the experience. On Saturday, my hometown experienced a major lightening storm. By Sunday morning, because the area is so dry, dozens of fires had started. Monday morning, I awoke to the police pounding at my door telling us we were at a Level 1 evacuation and to be prepared. I have been on evacuation warning at least 5 times in my lifetime and was not worried, but as Monday night rolled around, the fire had crested a hill by my house and I could see flames from my bedroom window. Tuesday morning, we were put on Level 3 evacuation and the panic set in. Have you ever wondered what you would pack in the unfortunate event of a fire? Well, actually packing for such an event is the most STRESSFUL thing ever (to be expected). I spent most of the morning pacing wondering what to take and settled on my computer, pictures and a few cozy clothing items (plus a few new things I hadn’t got the chance to wear…). The rest of the day was a waiting game, as firetrucks and police officers roamed the street and helicopters flew right overhead with buckets of water. Typically an extremely windy area, we got lucky as the wind has hardly blown the past few days, making for more favorable conditions. As of this morning, I believe we are out of trouble, but a thick smoke has settled, creating a weird haze and hazardous air. NO FUN.

On a happier note: I took these pictures BEFORE all the crazy…
I have seen this sweater EVERYWHERE. It’s no wonder why, as it’s cozy, cute and was quite the bargain. I’m really wishing I would have snatched up the brown version before it sold out. This will definitely be one of my favorites through fall and winter!
