All the Good Things [photo overload].

FLORIDA:

I traveled to Florida for a week recently for a “workcation” – basically, working remotely & some R&R time. Matt & Amanda were traveling home [to FL] for a couple weeks of rest, & I snagged the last seat on the same flight as them. Traveling with friends makes life more fun 🙂 Our first meal in Florida was Chipotle – YUM. I’m thankful for friends that let me hop in their rental car with them & drive across the state of FL.

Jess, thanks for incredible hospitality, including me in your family’s Easter weekend in the Keys, & letting me take over the guest room for a week.

Easter weekend in the Florida Keys consisted of: Fruit Stands, Alligators(!!), Strawberry Picking, Kayaking, Benefit Fish Fry, & an Easter church service – it was such a great weekend!

There are very few dogs that I totally LOVE…but let me tell you, Stanley has taken the gold.
Also, he’s a golden retriever, so that pun fit perfectly. 😉

After getting back from the Keys, we kicked it into high gear & worked.
While in America, it’s only logical to run errands & pick up things to take back to my Haiti home.

Below: Amanda & I went to Trader Joe’s together! We were ecstatic!

So, apparently rompers are the new thing in America. Who knew.

Whew! And that’s a wrap on the Florida Trip. Too fun.

Easter Egg Hunt with the Village of Hope Kids:

The weekend before Easter, we had an awesome egg hunt with the 63 awesome kids that live at Mission of Hope.
SO MUCH YES.
