The past couple months have been an experience that has kept us all far apart physically, but in many ways has brought us closer together.
We’ve lived through a few major disasters in Houston in recent years, including Hurricane Harvey and Tropical Storm Imelda. Both were devastating, but at the same time, it was inspiring to see our community rally to help each other rebuild.

They’ve been cooped up at home for two months now and were delighted when we made them a sweet surprise!
