Gatlinburg fire

These photos make my heart heavy. Gatlinburg, TN is very close to where I grew up, and I have so many fond memories of going there both as a child and an adult. Over Christmas my husband and I were back in the area to spend time with our family, but we snuck away for just a little bit to see some of the fire damage. This is only one tiny area, and the devastation is unreal.
