Why Community is Crucial
and three ways to invest in yours
Recently, I packed up a suitcase for myself, my baby and left my husband to pack his own (which in hindsight was a poor decision). We then spent a lovely Friday evening together without our 9-month-old (she went to the grandparent’s house).
This weekend kickoff date was not like many others we have shared. We spent our parents night out, inside our home lifting up furniture and cleaning out the bottom drawers of all our cabinets. Fun was had by all.
You see, we live in Houston, TX and the weather reports were calling for a bit of rain that weekend. We wanted to be prepared in case our house (which flooded for the first time in 60 years just two years after we moved in), took on water. We made plans to spend the weekend at my parent’s house since their neighborhood doesn’t have a history of flooding and their house is elevated 3.5 feet. After the furniture was raised as much as we could, we put the suitcases in the car and drove the 10 minutes to my parent’s house.
