It has taken three weeks but I have finally been able to sit down and write about how my (Courtney) family was personally affected by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in Houston. It has been a hectic three weeks full of long, exhausting and emotional days. My parents’ house flooded and we have been helping them gut and clean out their entire first floor as well as sort through all of their belongings that were destroyed. It is a weird feeling like you are living in this little bubble and that the outside world has stopped. Part 1 about the day they had to evacuate their home via boat (to our home down the road) is on the blog today. (grayhousestudio.com) or link in profile. These are just a few of the photos from the inside of their home. Their home is like a second home to us because we stop by there often for dinner and all the items in the home surrounded me during my childhood. It is an eerie feeling seeing it all underwater. On a positive note, we have been so grateful for the generosity and willingness to help from friends, neighbors, family and strangers.
