Nashville

I am sure you have heard by now the devastating flood that took place in Nashville. It really is heart breaking. So many homeowners didn't have flood insurance and have lost everything. Stephanie's mother was one of those people. To see more of the destruction and maybe lend a helping hand be sure to go here.


You can also show your support by purchasing one of these posters to support flood victims. I was quite excited when I came across them on Bird on a Wire. Lift Up Nashville... such a great cause.

I too had not realized how severe the devastation was until I visited Martha Stewart's blog and she featured photos from her former assistant's neighborhood in Nashville. It's just terrible! I will check out these posters... the guitar one looks like something my son would love!

Stephanie said...

I grew up in east Tennessee and called Nashville home for 5 years. I so wish I were there to help. The pictures I've received are truly unbelievable. Thanks for sharing these, I'm passing along as well.
