My mantra this week: breath and respond. I’ve climbed out of a deep dark hole. To my surprise, not everyone is as excited about my breakthrough.

Life Lately No. 6

I started this week on a 9 AM Flight to Orlando, FL. The plan was to meet with a friend’s mom. All he said was I can’t help you, it’s not my gift you need to go spend some time with my mom. Not really feeling like I was in a position to argue, I agreed […]

Welcome to my lifestyle blog.

Hello, Friends! Welcome to my lifestyle blog! Although I’ve wanted this digital space for fourteen years, I couldn’t bring myself to consistently write, post, and publish.

Dear Africa, I Love Rwanda

Dear Rwanda, (as I type that I’m slightly freaking out that it is already a month since I touched anything on the continent of Africa)! It took me a while to pen this letter because my experience on the continent of Africa was more than I could have ever imagined, therefore making it really really […]
