New Experiences and New Friends

I signed up very late for the Habitat for Humanity trip to Vero Beach Florida. But I am very grateful that I made the decision on a whim to go. The people on the trip are all so amazing and we laughed so much. I enjoyed having a flexible schedule after the work day so we could go to the beach, nap, play cards, or walk. We had great discussions about what qualifies you to get a house. The worksite was a learning experience as I used a hammer and nails for the first time and lifted more than I thought I was capable of. My favorite memories were getting to know the group members during dinners and cards and pushing myself to finish a tasks with the houses. I would be lucky to go again and hope to come back in one year.
