Hello and thank you for coming by to visit my blog. I am a photographer, mom and wife. I love my life and all the little details that surround it. The Lord has blessed me in so many ways and I am so thankful that I am able to do the things I love to do....be a photographer and a mommy. Please share your thoughts with me and throw some comments my way. They always brighten my day. Thanks again for coming by to visit and come back and see me. If I haven't met you, I look forward to meeting you someday. Have a great and blessed day!

I think I could stay here...

After only one day in Africa, I already appreciate the simplicity of life here. it doesn't mean they don't have struggles - it is obvious that they do. However, you can certinly sense that they appreciate every last thing they have and that they are not paying a monthly fee to a storage facility to store "their stuff". The pace of life is refreshing as you have time to soak in the blessings of your surroundings. It didn't take long yesterday to realize how blessed we are. When we exchanged our money yesterday and saw that one US dollar is worth 2,200 shillings. No pics for now but give it a few days and when we return from the safari we will have plenty!
