A few months ago, raging fires devastated the Texas town of Bastrop and surrounding area. Over a thousand families lost their homes. It was tragic.
Eric and I visited Bastrop on New Year’s Day, our anniversary. We chose January 1 as our wedding date purposefully, as a symbol of BEGINNING. And it was with that spirit that we drove the country roads around Bastrop and hiked the Lost Pine forests of Bastrop State Park. What we saw?
You could hear the echoes of their screams, feel their searing pain.
What we also saw?
Houses partially framed out over old slabs.
