peace in the midst of chaos*

Susannah, Frida and I arrived back home yesterday afternoon. The ride from Los Angeles to San Diego was a bit surreal. The sky is an orange-ish haze and smells of one large campfire. Puffs of smoke lined the hills surrounding us near the freeway.
I've received loads of emails and phone calls while I was away inquiring if we were safe from the fires. I wanted to leave a quick note to let you know that we are indeed safe. My home is near one of the evacuation centers, so we truly are in a good place. Boho Boy brought over an air mattress, blankets and pillows for a stranded family at the center. The whole of San Diego is coming together to lend a hand and lift one another up.
We are taking the girls to a beach today where we are hoping the air is a bit more clear and fresh. We have limited time left together, so as much as there is chaos going on around us, we are able to find peace in the midst of it all.
This morning on the couch Boho Boy was in the middle of a love sandwich while we listened to 80's music and shared old stories. Lucky boy. ; )
Photos and stories about our time together with Swirly are coming soon. It's been other~worldy and I need time to marinate in it all.
