It’s always being made clear to us: the universe has a plan. After months of our VW Bus being at the shop, we were able to pick him up, literally a day before Hurricane Matthew hit our little town. It was absolutely incredible to evacuate just in the nick of time. We were lucky to escape to Columbia and found creative ways to stay positive.

We slept in our VW bus for two nights and then gave into a hotel for the remaining week we were evacuated. We’d call the electricity company every day to see if power had been restored, but it took nine days. During our time away, we enjoyed some time at a State Park, had a blast at the State Fair and took beautiful drives with our dog, Sunday. It was quite an adventure and experience.
