Kindness

My family has had an idea brewing in our minds for a year or more now. It was a little bit out of our comfort zone. But it also sounded like SO MUCH FUN. We finally did it last week. The kids and I loaded up in the Suburban with fresh baked cookies. Next stop: […]

Haiti Has My Heart

Last month at this time I was just days away from being at home in Haiti (and being warm!!!). This was my third trip to Haiti. From the moment I stepped off the airplane in Port-au-Prince in 2013 I felt an incredible love for Haiti. That love has only grown through the years. My trips […]
