We had family evacuate to our house last week, and we watched as Hurricane Matthew scraped its way up the east coast.The radar and the news reports were terrifying, and we’d heard enough. Once all the people and pets were safe with us, we decided to make the best of it. We hiked trails, played music, cooked up some food, and my brother made the perfect drink for the occasion: dark & stormies.
And when the hurricane stayed far enough offshore to spare the worst damage imaginable, we made another round and breathed a sigh of relief.I hope you and your loved ones are all safe and sound, too. xoxo
