If your house was burning, what would you take with you?

Not to get all apocalyptic on you guys... but with natural disasters, Mayan predictions and rapture talk, its just on my mind. And then I saw this awesome tumblr that asks people, "If your house was burning, what would you take with you?" It is sweet to see a person's most precious possessions, be it homemade berimbaus or a favorite record.








After going through the tumblr, I started thinking about what I would grab. Assuming Hunter is safe, like most, I would grab my computer. My wedding ring (also assuming the fire started while I was sleeping, since I don't sleep with it on). My phone. Boxes of old love letters, cards and photos. The moleskin I had in Spain. The mittens my mom made me. My glasses. Maybe my Fresh candle (its the little things, people). Quilts. My magenta coat. And would it be weird if I grabbed my knives? I have really great knives... What would you grab?

I've sadly been thinking about this too! Mostly in relation to tsunamis and my house being so close to the beach! I've always liked the idea of starting fresh so I don't know if I would grab anything. Except my wedding ring and maybe my laptop and hard drive. ;) BTW, thanks for your comments. I am a big fan of amarillo y crema. Also, I love your pinterest.

That's such a great question and it's interesting to see what people would take! I would first make sure that my family is safe and they're all okay first and I'll grab my computer first like most people, my wallet, my favorite white jacket and my phone. xxoxoxoo

Oh wow, this is such an interesting topic and such a fresh point of view to look at it.

On top of my head: passport, greencard, wedding ring, and my cats? I have to think about it some more!

My journals, my camera, and my husband. Other than that I don't have many valuable things!
