Kelly Family Flood Recovery

We really debated whether or not to do this, especially since we asked for help when Beezus was sick and we don't want to seem like beggars. But MANY people have asked how they can help, and several have suggested a GoFund Me. So we humbly are posting. We need help refurnishing. :(

Our house is not currently habitable. It's been "yellow tagged" , which means we can't stay there.  Insurance is not being as kind as we hoped. All of our belongings are not covered and only the house structure is. We are also having to dispose of the carpet and our beds and stuff on the upper levels due to mildew. 

We absolutely love living in Monte Rio. The sense of community, the friendly nature of literally everyone you encounter, the strong sense of a neighborhood, the focus on small local businesses, the breathtaking beauty of the area, everything....It was our dream to move here. Both Gnat and I felt drawn to the area before we even met and knew we would settle here. We just picked the wrong damn time and the wrong damn house.

But I have honestly never felt more at home anywhere. I truly love my little community and will be devastated if we have to leave.
