hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Selfies

Selfies

It's 9:51pm and I'm already in bed.

Great, right? So much sleep to look forward to--finally!

Nope.

We're leaving to the airport at 1:30am to catch a 4:30 flight. We know we have a layover in Abhu Dahbi and then onto "Africa," but we don't know where yet. Any last minute guesses?

(We're crossing our fingers for Ethiopia!)

My most joyful moments today happened while we were scavenging in the park. First, we came across a group of three guys who spoke amazing English and were eager to help us. We all became Facebook friends and decided it was important to take a selfie (this was my idea I'm sure).

Then later, I was walking in the park alone while Mark went to get some water and a group of Muslim girls stopped me to ask (in perfect English) if they could take a selfie with me.

THIS IS ONLY MY DREAM!

I welcome strangers wishing for selfies with me! Hopefully someday that will happen when I finally publish my own book...

Friends in the park :)
