So I know that I’ve been counting down the days and the plan was to arrive on April 24. However, I lied. And it worked. My family never saw it coming but I flew in yesterday to NYC after spending a beautiful week in Haiti. More on that in a future post. Sunday dinners are … Continue reading A Surprise
Kayaking Upsala Lake during a mini ‘tsunami’ and living to tell the tale. Even better, exaggerating the story amongst ourselves over dinner that night.

7. Meeting my mom in Buenos Aires and hiking throughout the lakes district. Speaking of appreciating people, seeing my mom after 2 months without her was just as incredible. It’s repetitive but worthwhile. Appreciate the good people in your life with love to give and receive.
