Below are some highlights & favorite moments from this Spring. I’m deeply grateful for this life, this country, these people, & these memories.

What better way to celebrate the MOH 2016 spring intern class than hiking through the mountains & soaking in this beautiful place? When you’re hiking up the mountains & they say it’s time for a mango pit-stop, YOU SAY YES.
A favorite little coffee spot in my home that is filled with gifts from thoughtful friends who know my love for coffee & tea.
April 21, 2016. 6 years, 3 months & 9 days after a devastating earthquake struck Haiti & created massive devastation for many all across the country, 615 houses are now complete to help alleviate one of the many problems caused by that earthquake. That’s 615 families whose lives have been transformed by having a place to live, a place to send their kids to school, & most importantly, a church on top of the hill for people to praise God for what he is doing in Haiti.
A (very real) day in my life. I can not be trusted to hold anything in the mornings.
Bird’s nest outside my door.
Flying back to my Haiti home.
Truth, shadows, & light.

“Can you turn up the volume? I love this song!”
Taking Texas by storm with some of my favorite Haitian friends.
Girl’s weekend 2016. “Do you guys have any training? Like are y’all professional paddle-boarders?” – random guy in Austin. We totally looked like pros y’all.
Friday morning strolling downtown ATX with Jess & Stanley.
Meeting Josiah (Matt & Amanda’s little one) for the first time! Days of snuggles in Florida were so so sweet.
The snuggle is real.

I’m not normally down by the school in the mornings, but one morning I was & I loved watching all these littles in their red uniforms file into school.
Day off Port Au Prince adventures with our new friend & driver Junior. He liked listening to Ben Rector & when a song came on talking about a beautiful girl, he turned to me & said, “you?” 😂👏🏻 Good day with good (charming) friends.
And you think your carpool is rough.
Fresh Florida strawberries hand delivered by the lovely Sarah Hall! What a gift!

Front porch sittin’ is a favorite of mine in any country.
Camp Gladiator: Haiti style! It’s grown a little over the past few months. I sure do love these people, these early morning workouts, & watching the sunrise over the mountains each day. What a life!

Love these friends! Jean Marc learned how to play Adele’s “Hello”, so naturally we sang along & were entertained for a while. It’s a joy to work with this team!
