Awake at 3AM, I started thinking (for far too long) about travel & coffee. Both Josh & I love to try coffee in other places and then we come home craving whatever coffee we had in _______ for several months. After our last trip to Italy, we drove around Vermont trying cappuccinos to see where we could find the best one, brought home ingredients to make Greek frappes for at least a month... Thankfully St. John just has delicious cold brew. Head to #stjohnprovisions or @cruzbaylanding1 (the caffeine options are sooo good!) if you’re on island right now! ☕️👏
Can’t believe how changed St Maarten is post hurricane and the damage and destruction that can still be seen two years later #stmaarten #sunkenships #posthurricane #destruction
So grateful to see the green coming back!! #posthurricane #hurricanemichael #850strong #florida #recovery

We 💕 you, @iriepopsvi ! Working our way through all of the flavors. For real, though. Check them out if you’re on the island!
Favorite Caribbean island? Dying to know where in the world your favorite beach is (even if it’s not Caribbean!)

We took a little break, you & I, but it wouldn’t have felt right to spend tourist $ anywhere else after such wild devastation so finally found myself on a plane headed back to St. John. The healing vibes floating around this place are truly (& thankfully) contagious. It will never be the same but I will always love this island.💕 ***For all those who have asked, it’s incredible how everything is looking already and absolutely worth the trip!
Look at what my sister @diythekatieway has done!!!! After the devastation that was hurricane Harvey her family picked themselves up and began to rebuild their home and life. They have come so far and done so well. I am so proud to call this talented woman my sister! #DIY #diyhomedecor #posthurricane #lookhowfartheyvecome #remodel #proudsister

Some things aren’t meant to last forever. . . . . Living through the strongest hurricane to make land fall and then returning after has to be one of the most surreal experiences of my life. The ability to see such beauty disappear in a matter of hours, then for it to take years to rebuild. It’s scary to think about nature sometimes, but it’s humbling too. Sometimes things are meant to get destroyed so you can realize what matters in life and reset. It’s not the best way to reset, but it happens and life moves on! . . . . . #sxm #sintmaarten #onlyonsxm #magicofthecaribbean #silverqueen #gloomyday #boat #posthurricane #irma #simpsonbaymarina #simpsonbay #photography #sonyalpha #sonya6300 #travelphotography #travel #travelholic #trenking #livefromthestreets
1 | 3 | 18 We get by with a little help from our friends. A few 2x6s, one fork lift, a sledgehammer, three relentless humans, and a whole lot of wiggle work to put Hermpty Dermpty back together again.

The appropriate social media caption would go on about how blessed we are to have each other and some kind of roof over our heads. But my unfiltered truth is that I am completely over living in this house. I’m over the plastic ceilings that keep falling down and raining debris every time it happens. I’m over the concrete floors that make it difficult and uncomfortable for my children to play on them. Im over the hallway flooding when it rains. I’m extremely over all of the lizards and cockroaches that keep coming in through the plastic walls. And I’m over the smell of mildew and mold that seems to be getting stronger every day. I know that there are people around the world (and even in our neighborhood) who have it much worse than us, but I still hate that my family has been living in these conditions. It’s been 2 months of this, but it is about to be over with (thank you Jesus!).

Community CPR had the privilege of hosting NC Works, CP, Cape Fear Council of Governments, & Cape Fear Work Force Development earlier this week. With the help of these groups, Community CPR has been able to fund Four (12-month) positions. Pictured Above: Alfreda B.

Puerto Rico is one of the best places that we have traveled for many reasons, but this is just one. The highest point in Puerto Rico.

First use of Behr Marquee interior paint... AMAZING! This is the first true one coat paint I have used. Rolls smooth and even.

The word clearly hasn’t gotten out yet. After 16 months post Irma, the @islanderresort in #islamadora in @thefloridakeys is open for business. Perfect for families - a salt water and fresh water pool, shuffleboard, ping pong, #ocean view, and each room has a #screenedinporch #floridakeys #florida @visitflorida #marchbreak #middlekeys #beach #tranquility #slowliving #travelwriter #travel #familyresort #posthurricane #familyholiday
I still can’t stop thinking about this one: There’s a #posthurricane #hikingtrail cleanup effort to collect trash that the ocean brought inland, and MILES off the shore, someone happens to notice how #vintage this one piece of #litter seemed, and basic inquiries to the corporate #doritos HQ confirmed it was literally from 1979. So much to unpack here. How lucky that it’s not in the belly of a suffocated ocean creature ✅. How all that tidal movement and all that saltwater still didn’t barely even breakdown the #plastic for ALMOST FORTY YEARS 😭. And these “snacks” are not only wrapped in plastic and not even really “food” - they’re not only not healthy and not filling for you, but when you put it in your body and you put its #singleuseplastic wrapping in the waste stream, very likely makes us ILL. 🤮. Like, how much did the eaters of this bag of chips actually enjoy it? Most likely, it was a mindless eating experience. #Ughhhhh . - I’m not saying I never use any plastic (though I’d love to say I don’t), but can we please be more mindful, can we please ALL cut back instead of just the #environmentalists (we do ALL live here, right?! ;), can we please vote for alternatives (politically and with our dollars), can we please not litter, and can we please all recycle plastic in every town and city?! #endrant - - #noplanetb #healthysnacks #youarewhatyoueat #votewithyourdollars #nostrawplease #livelikeyougiveadamn #enoughism
Sometimes I get a vision of a photograph in my mind and I feel called to create it. When we were in St. John in February, I was amazed at the hurricane damage still so evident across the island, a year and a half post-storm. They have a large wild donkey population, and a couple of times we drove by this house and saw the donkeys hanging nearby. I kept imagining this photo.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Finally on our last day, as we were driving to the ferry port, we saw the donkeys here again. I asked Christian to pull over and I hopped out to take this photo. A cute baby burro, doing its best to survive amid the rubble as the island works to rebuild. Moments like this really put life into perspective. 💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #juniperstudios #perspective #calling #stjohn #stjohnusvi #stjohndaily #vermontweddingphotographer #vermontphotographer #newenglandphotographer #vtphotographer #travelphotographer #documentaryphotographer #hurricaneirma #posthurricane #wilddonkeys #rebuilding #farmphotographer #outdoorphotographer #thankful #blessed
i havent seen a sunset in days. going into withdrawal mode. #posthurricane
Wire left behind from the Hurricane restoration effort. I think that they just forgot it was here. It’s going on 2 years now since then not sure if the people who brought it here are even still on island. . Either way I just wanted you to know that I didn’t forget to wish the February 28 babies a Happy Birthday!!!! . I did however realize that I should have done this in 2016 ‘cause that was the last leap year. Why not wait until 2020? Because life is too short to wait! . So because of my lateness I must ALSO wish the February 29th babies a Happy Birthday!!!🎉🎁🎊 . ... honestly I may just have to continue this for another year 😢 oh well 😔 that’s life. . . #thatslife #cestlavie #ohwell #leftbehind #happybirthday365 #felizcumpleaños365 #anotheryearwiser #posthurricane #gottokeepmoving #shouldhavethoughtthisthrough #immabealright
The little guy went on an adventure out on a farm in Carolina. The old man teaching him to drive needed help fixing up his house. The last hurricane flooded his entire first floor. So now they live in a tiny FEMA trailer on side of the house. The husband was fixing and installing doors and windows today while the little guy handed and hammered nails, etc. all the while begging to get on the real backhoe out in his yard. #volunteerwork #getyourhandsdirty #putthekidtowork #dirtyjob #posthurricane #homeschool #learningtodrive #thicksouthernaccent #southernaccent

4 month post Hurricane Michael update! Progress: new roof, fence is up and yard is cleared out! You wouldn’t know from looking at the outside, what the inside still looks like. Currently waiting for the demo to start on the inside. Most of the walls will have to be taken down and rebuilt. Once that starts we will have to vacate the house (yes we are still living here!) and it could take about 6 months to completely rebuild the walls, ceilings and update floors. Still a long road ahead but things are heading in the right direction. Just wanted to update those curious of me and my family’s living condition. #undersconstruction #850strong #newroof #renovations #floridalife #posthurricane #hurricanemichael
Some serious work was done today. Demo is very therapeutic, but I know why people get paid to do it. #demo #homerenovation #posthurricane #tired

More than one year after hurricane Maria, we are still finding debris left by the hurricane. Last weekend, we helped clean up Puerto Ferro (aka Tres Palmitas or Barracuda Bay). The effort to keep Vieques clean continues! Come to Vieques. Help support our efforts while enjoying a beautiful vacation. Thank you to @jakwatersports @u_sfishandwildlifeservice @waivieadventuretours and Abe’s snorkeling and biobay tours who were also there. Ticatove and US Fish and Wildlife organized the event. #viequespr #vieques #viequesisland #crystalclear #crystalclearvieques #reliefefforts #ocean #clean #protect #mangroveconservation #oceanconservation #kayak #kayaking #cleaning #voluntourism #conservation #posthurricane #posthurricanemaria
Day 24 ✔️ A quick run around the neighborhood and Hurricane Florence is still present everywhere. Almost 3/4 of my neighborhood was severely damaged, a lot of families having to relocate to different houses, different neighborhoods. The national disaster relief teams are still here and the estimated time of finished repairs is April 2020 😲 We were very lucky with minimal inside and outside damage, although we had shingle damage to our roof that hasn't been repaired and with the monsoon of rain we've been receiving lately I'm afraid that it may have started leaking into our attic above our kitchen because the smell that has arrived aka mold is unbearable 😭😭 We will find out more tomorrow with maintenance and on the 6th with the restoration team when they do another walk through evaluation and moisture readings!! . On a happier note, I got negative splits on my run today! 😃😃 I owe it all to the "hype" music on Spotify 😂 . . . #motherrunner #swclstreaks #strollerwarriors #strollerwarriorscamplejeune #running #instarun #runningstreak #miles #momof3 #fitmom #fitnessmom #instarunner #mileage #negativesplits #outdoorrunning #beautifulrunningweather #halfmarathontraining #posthurricane #stillrebuilding #hurricaneflorence #disasterrelief
Don’t miss the opening of the 2019 Benjamin Menschel Fellows Exhibition on Tuesday, January 29 at 6pm in the 41 Cooper Gallery. This year’s exhibition features work by junior art students Nicole Lindner and Jesus Morales with junior mechanical engineering student Sophie Schneider who explored the impact of a Canadian silver mining company on a historic town in Mexico; senior art student Jackson McGrath who studied Haverstraw, NY, a town that once supplied most of the bricks that built NYC; junior art students Sarah Phillips and Yonatan Katzelnik who researched the role of an open telecommunications community network during the recent Catalan bid for independence; junior art students Tandis Shoushtary and Anna Burholt who interviewed queer/LGBT Iranian women, mostly asylum seekers, in Toronto; and senior civil engineering student Gabriela Godlewski, who studied Houston’s post-hurricane efforts through soil sampling, interviewing residents, and working with several of the city’s response agencies. The exhibition runs through February 14.
