Today was a day that called for some serious vitamin sea. I love this life, but sometimes this life throws curveballs and presents situations that my brain doesn’t fully know how to process.

Never have I felt more at home than I do in Jacmel, Haiti. Come visit me, friends. Life is pretty great down in the Caribbean. 🌊🌴🌅 #lifeinhaiti #haiti #ayiticheri #thisishaiti
Ever since I moved to the coast I dreamed of having a home with an ocean view. Today, three years later, that dream finally came true. My heart is full. ✨💕🌊 #haiti #thisishaiti #lifeinhaiti #ayiticheri
“As women we are given two choices as to how we respond to this baffling phenomenon of the scrutiny and mistreatment of the female gender.
We can succumb to it and allow it to bury us completely. Forever we remain victims walking around as empty shells distrusting everyone and feeling as though we will only ever be seen as incompetent and something to be exploited.
Or, we can choose to be seeds, and allow the stomping down, and the burying to be the very soil from which we set roots, and burst forth with vigor as bright and glorious trees and flowers.
They tried to bury us, but they didn’t know we were seeds...” .

Today is #givingtuesday, a day where you have an opportunity to give back after a weekend of Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays. A day where you choose an organization you can stand behind and support to help further their goals and mission. Today, I humbly ask you to consider choosing @jasperhousehaiti. As the year comes to a close, our expenses increase due to graduations, end of semester, and creating Christmas for our women. As the founder and executive director, I can wholeheartedly assure you that 100% of your donations go to supporting our women. They provide a loving home, food, clothing, medical care, education and empowerment. You aren’t giving to a black hole that never produces results. You’re helping transform the lives of women who are survivors of trauma and abuse. You’re helping to write a new story. Today, consider rising and empowering the women and children of Jasper House Haiti with your giving. Whether that gift may be $10, $25, or even $1000 it all makes a difference! Thank you for all of your love and support! May you be richly blessed this holiday season and into the new year! Donations are fully tax deductible. Link in bio.

When you get on a boat with nothing but a swimsuit and end up on a 7+ hour adventure to the southernmost island of Haiti to have a picnic in the middle of the ocean and a voyage across the sea at moonlight. Great people. Good memories. J’adore Haïti Cherie.

“And now, I’ve reached this place. This place where the things that used to feel so unfamiliar have now become a part of me. This place where my second language has become second nature. Where this raw collision of cultures has finally found a way to feel normal. And coming to Haiti is truly coming home.” . .
tomorrow I celebrate four years of life in Haiti. latest blog post touching on some reflections of the past few years. enjoy. link in bio.
