every time i take off on one of my adventures, my mom says, “viv ti la vie ou,” live your little life. whenever i step outside of the country and out of my comfort zone, i associate it with living out this tiny life of mine. and so we did. we hopped on a plane and followed summer, down to haiti, where we came together in anticipation of my cousin’s first born child. haiti nourishes my spirit like no place else in the world.
