this is going to be a super short post so that i can just get these links up!! growing up in houston, it breaks my heart to see all those who have lost lives and homes and cars and i feel so helpless being so far away!
all of my family, and a lot of my friends that i've heard from, are safe even if they've had some water damage, and their safety is the most important thing. many of my friends know i'm from houston and they've called or texted to check on my parents and my brother and his family and i appreciate all of you that have checked on them so much!! everyone everywhere is just so heartbroken to see what has happened, but it has definitely brought a sense of unity during a time when there's been quite a divide!! seeing people come together to help has been really beautiful. houston - know that we are all sending all the love and hugs and prayers and sunshine and positive vibes and more hugs and love!!!
if you're able to send more than hugs and love, i'm going to post links below for those of you that want to HELP HOUSTON -
donate to help Humble Elementary - this is being managed by a teacher at the school. my cousin used to teach at this sweet school. https://www.gofundme.com/relief-for-humble-el-families
