home very sweet home

Downtown Hoboken on our Wedding Day
One week & one day (but who's counting?) after we were displaced due to Hurricane Sandy, my husband & I came home last night.  It felt so good, so right, so sweet to be home again.  Hoboken, we missed you so much.  If there was a way to wrap my arms tight around our home & give it a big kiss, I would.

Hoboken means the world to us not only because it is our home, also it is the backdrop to our love story.  My husband & I met in Hoboken, dated in Hoboken, tied the knot in Hoboken, live in Hoboken & hope to start our family in Hoboken.  Not to mention that my business, Koru Wedding, was started in Hoboken.  The streets of this town tell our stories & hold our memories.

Right now, our beloved little town is still hurting so we hurt too.  There has been remarkable recovery in the past almost two weeks since Hurricane Sandy but there is much, much more to be done.  Fellow Hobokenites can't come home because their home & their belongings were lost to the flood waters.  Many of our favorite businesses remain shuttered because they were severely damaged & ruined.   I walk around the neighborhood that is familiar yet different.  I see the sadness & I feel the hope.   

& this is a familiar scene all across our area.  Staten Island, Breezy Point & Jersey shore towns to name a few.  RZ & I have pledged to do what we can to bring Hoboken & other areas back better than ever.  We will shop, dine & volunteer local & we know many others who have the exact same plan.  We are Hoboken Strong AND Jersey Strong!
