    1. Me too! I feel that there is not nearly enough of it out there. You and I are pioneers my friend 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting and for all the encouragement. I look forward to your next post.


      1. For this summer? Good luck! I haven’t been in three years but it’s an experience of a lifetime.

        My mother lived in Ethiopia for a while so I have a soft spot in my heart for it. She keeps promising we’ll go visit one day.

        Let me know how it turns out. Have a good weekend.
