30 Things I'd Rescue
If There Was a Magic "Save My Stuff" Fairy
When I first thought of creating this lens it was from the perspective of "what would I save if there was a fire" but there are really so many natural and man-made disasters that could happen that I changed the focus.
Assuming I had the time to rescue them and assuming that all life, human and critter, have been brought to safety, I wanted to look at what else was important to me. I walked around my house and took pictures of things that I had strong emotional ties to. You will find photos and explanations of my choices below.
I highly recommend that you do the same thing -- you do not have to make a lens about it if you don't want -- just take a leisure walk through each room of our home with a journal and pen and make a list. Jot down some notes with each one as to why it is important to you.

We have our important papers protected in a fire safety box and in an accessible location should we need to grab it.

The Most Important Thing
There are only 29 pictures. That is because I could not find my 30th item -- my grandmother's antique watch. I had it appraised a few years ago and then put it away for safe keeping. I did such a good job of putting it away that neither I nor my husband have been able to find it. I put this as an important note for you because it makes my point of how important lists like these are. Find your 30 important items and make a note of where they are so in a emergency you can find them. Add to vitals.
Thank you for dropping by and looking at my pictures. Hopefully you will take up the "30 things I'd rescue" challenge. If you do leave me a link and I'll stop by and have a look.
