On Our Way...


Kyle and I booked our tickets last night for our trip to Haiti in October. We are both so excited. For one selfish moment I thought of how far the $1400 in airfare could have went towards a cruise with my cute husband....but nothing really does it for me like mountains of garbage, earth shattering poverty, men with guns (big ones) and spiders the size of a small country! Truth is since the minute I step off the plane for the first time in Port-au-Prince I felt that feeling I get when you get home and there is so much to do and you just roll up your sleeves and get to it and it feels so good. That is how Haiti is for me and I can't wait to get back.
