close to home.

the devastation from hurricane sandy hits close to home. literally.

i grew up in hillsborough, nj, only 45 minutes from new york city and 1 hour from the shore. summer trips down the shore were a tradition. 

crabbing in ortley beach,
beach bonfires in sea isle,
miniature golf at barnacle bill's, 
bachelorette parties in atlantic city,
and prom weekend in seaside heights. 

i hold so many special memories from the jersey shore and the devastation from hurricane sandy is heart-wrenching. 

i was actually in atlantic city the day the storm came through. the city had a mandatory evacuation at 12pm. we left at 8am and the ocean was already up to the boardwalk. the streets were completely empty and windows already boarded up. such an eerie sight for what is always such a vibrant city.

the images of the aftermath still weigh heavy on my heart. especially for all of the people and families who lost everything. i have family and friends who had some minor flooding and were without power for a few weeks, but they were the lucky ones. i just can't help thinking about those people who lost everything - here we are with a roof over our head, decorating the christmas tree and wrapping presents, anticipating christmas morning in just a few short days. and there are so many who are stripped of those things this year.

so please take a moment this holiday season to think about those who lost everything due to hurricane sandy. and think about what you can do for them, whether it's a simple letter of encouragement, a small monetary donation, or lend a hand to assist with the clean up.

 it will take time to rebuild, but we are jersey strong and we will overcome this. 





what can you do?

1. visit american red cross to donate or volunteer
