Spring Break in Haiti

My trip to Haiti; in picture form

Advertisements

Hey loves,

So it’s been a little over a week since we got back from Haiti & it’s taken me a while to write this because truly I don’t have the words to describe the things I experienced on this trip. I have recounted the events over and over to friends and family and each time I find it more and more draining because while I loved the trip and had a great time, there are a lot of things that will stick with me for many years. –Things that I struggle to share with you

So I’ve decided that I’m going to keep this post to mostly photos because I don’t want the negative aspects of this trip to take away some of the amazing things that I experienced.

First and foremost I want to thank all the amazing friends I have made. We experienced things that we will probably never see again. I am very grateful that we became so close and that even after returning home we have continued to keep in -touch. I know that we have all struggled in our own ways and I find comfort in the fact that I have all of you by my side as we get through it together.

I will never forget all the times we laughed until we cried, danced on the rooftop, taken silly photos and the secrets we shared. Haiti was the experience of a lifetime and I wouldn’t have wanted to experience that journey with any other group of people. Never will I ever find people like all of you ❤

Wherever we go in life we will always have the memories of our trip to Haiti 🙂

UPDATE

Hi agaaaaain,

So first update of this crazy adventure! Can I start by saying it feels like today has already been about 3 days in one?! I am currently on my second flight of the day, with one more layover and one last flight to go…not to mention another 3 hours on this flight. Dang, I knew it was going to be a long day, but I guess you never really know until you do, huh?

Anyways, I’m currently in the sky somewhere between Minneapolis, MN and Anchorage, AK…. Despite the seemingly endless day I am having a lot of fun traveling to new places! There’s been a lot of hurry up and waiting and I feel like I haven’t gotten very far, but if theres something I’ve already learned from being in the military it’s that I’m about to get REAL good at waiting…Yay army!

I’ve gotten most of my homework done today, so that’s a plus. I won’t have to spend too much time worrying about it this weekend and can just take in all that Alaska has to offer.

I do have to say, one of the highlights of my trip so far was definitely the sunset in Minnesota! I unfortunately was not able to get pictures because I was on the other side of the plane, but it was incredible. I’ve seen a lot of sunsets, in a lot of places, but this was definitely one like no other.

Alright well thats all for now, Not sure when I’ll be back. But until then, have a great night lovelies!!

Ready for a Getaway

Take a trip with me!

Hey lovliessss,

So SUPER quick!!! I know I haven’t posted much lately, although I have been working on a few posts (trying to work out the kinks), but everything here has been super crazy!!!! I feel like I’ve been stuck in the middle of never ending work, school and future soldier trainings. Howeverrrrr, despite the amount of homework I have to get done this weekend I’m hoping that I’ll be able to relax soon!

Now that I leave tomorrow, I will finally tell you where I’m off to…You ready?!

…….

ALASKA!!!

So super duper crazy, not going to lie. But I have a friend at Fort Wainwright and I thought it would be fun to take a trip before the semester gets TOO crazy, also I’m in need of a break from everything here!

You all know I hate the cold, so this is a strange destination for me… but I LOVE traveling & honestly, how many people get to say that they’ve gone to Alaska?! THIS GIRL soon enough! It’s also perfect timing because I’m taking a digital imaging class and will have lots of pictures to share!

It’s definitely been a bit of a struggle trying to figure out what to pack for clothes considering that the temperature is often in the negatives…so we’ll see how I’ve done. I also have no idea what I would have done without Marley because she literally repacked my bags multiple times for me to make sure that everything fit into my carry ons (I hate checking bags).

So definitely a short trip with A LOT of flight time, but I really think it’s going to be the trip of a lifetime. I am going to try to keep this up to date over the weekend, but in case that doesn’t happen I will be taking LOTS of pictures as well as using snapchat and twitter. So FOLLOW and join me on this adventure! (heyitskennax3)

Can’t wait to share my experiences, have a great rest of your night and talk to you soon!

Life is too short…

Just a little advice for the new year 🙂

Life is too short.

Simply the most honest words of any in this world. It’s too short not to do the things you want, to be with the people you want to be with, or to try the things you’ve always wanted to try. Life is just too short.

Be spontaneous. It’s scary, it really is -but don’t be afraid. Don’t be afraid to tell those people how you really feel just because they might not feel the same. Tell them because they’ll know how you feel and it’ll make you happy regardless of the outcome.

Get on a plane. See the people and the places you want to see. There’s never going to be enough money, so why not spend it on the things you want? Spend it to be with the people you want to be with. Don’t be scared. Just jump.

Jump at new opportunities and places. Jump at a new beginning and a fresh start, leave the past behind & Don’t look back.

Don’t be that person who looks back in 10 years from now and thinks “I really wish I had done this, gone there or told them that,” be the one who thinks “Wow, I’ve done some incredible things & met even more incredible people.”

You don’t make history, by sitting back and letting everything happen around you, you make history by doing the things that scare you -taking the risks.

As for the risks I’ll be taking this year? Let’s just say, I’m the craziest of them all…My plane leaves in under 2 weeks & I cannot wait.

Here’s to the risks we take this year,
