HERE SHE COMES
“One Human Family” is not just a slogan, it is a lifestyle. In the Florida Keys, the yoga instructor, the barista, the plumber, the bartender and the restaurant owner all become family. When I wasadvised to “pack my valuables and evacuate” I looked around my apartment and really had no idea what to pack. What I wanted most was to come back to my island, the love, the ocean, the smiles, and the business. In a moment that I can only describe as numb, I packed the items from my office, a photo album that my Mom made for me of baby photos, and my college degrees. The final item was Minnie ears, mostly because they make me happy and I knew uncertainly lay ahead. In the days that followed, I heard from so many families that I was beyond touched. My feelings were fear, sadness, rage, and anxiety. In many cases I couldn’t even respond, but to know and feel the love was comforting beyond any words on a page.
Some lives were lost, some people no longer have homes, and some were blessed with minimal destruction. Whatever each individual situation is, we are in this together and we will rise. While Key West has made a miraculous come back, our neighbors just to the north have a long road ahead. The humanitarian efforts have been extraordinary. I’m a proud member of this “One Human Family” and am looking forward to the 2018 season. I have an unexplainable renewed gratitude for life and love.

A personal message from Erin...
I returned from evacuation October 1st. The damage to my own personal property was minimal and I have been able to get back to work and help others in the community. I have had both returning families and new families contact me and come here because they want to support us! The love coming from near and far is just another confirmation that I have some of the best families and children in my life from all over the world. Have a wonderful holiday season!
NOT A DAYCARE
and SO MUCH MORE than Babysitting!
