We arrived back from Haiti Sunday morning, and it was a bit of a nightmare. We were supposed to have arrived at 1AM (this was after a long layover), but after more delays getting to our gate and then discovering our car battery was dead, we didn’t get home until 4AM. It made for an interesting night, and the wait made getting home and jumping into our comfy beds even sweeter.
There are a multitude of things we take for granted everyday. It wasn’t our first time seeing poverty, but the reality sinks in deeper each time… of how blessed we are and how it’s important to count our blessings. No matter the circumstances. It wasn’t a long trip, but long enough to start missing our comforts. Here was our top five things we missed & today we’re especially thankful for:
- Warm showers
- Power at all hours of the day
- Toilets with good plumbing
- Internet. Oh, internet. What would we do without you.
And since it was Father’s Day yesterday, we can’t leave out our dads who love us and raised us to be who we are today.
We’ve always wanted to do a cross-country roadtrip and finally decided to stop talking about it and actually do it! Hopefully, we can hit all 50 states in the next five years, so this is only the beginning of our U.S. adventure. If we’re in your area and you’d like to book a session with us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The photo sessions will be limited to only a few spots because of our schedule, but we’re always up for grabbing some good food/desserts too. Here are our travel dates for July.
