My Great Aunt gave my husband and I my Great Uncle’s wedding ring when he passed away last year. Coming from a man whom I loved (and I miss) very much, it meant the world to me. When we had it sized to fit Aj, they had to cut a piece of gold out in order to size it properly. My husband took that into Victoria Jewelers, with a picture of how I wanted a necklace made and turned it into a one year anniversary gift. Thank you, Victoria Jewelers, for doing such a wonderful job! I don’t think it could be more perfect. Aj, It means the world to me that I get to carry a piece of Uncle Al around with me every day — I love the thoughtful man you are.
I saw the Eiffel Tower for the first time on August 4, 2015 and it was hands down the happiest moment of my life so far. I didn’t expect a pile of iron to bring me to tears but there I was... crying on the Seine River. For me, seeing that beautiful structure sparkle symbolized everything I never thought my life could be. Nobody I knew personally had ever been to Europe, yet I was somehow lucky enough to be in the most magical city I’d ever seen on a trip I’d paid for myself. I felt a little bit proud and overwhelmingly lucky. That moment awoke something inside of me that I haven’t been able to silence since. Can’t wait to see you again soon, Paree! 🤗
🎶 Domini Domini Dominicana 🎶 I usually avoid all inclusive and large hotels but for a friend's destination wedding, this was quite the experience. I enjoyed sunset views like this one. Isn't it lovely? 🌴🌊☀️ #DominicanRepublic#CaribbeanVibes#SunsetGram
You might think you're in the Sahara Desert, but South Africa's 250 hectare Maitland Nature Reserve in Port Elizabeth is home to these famous and impressive Maitland sand dunes! #WowSouthAfrica Photos by @unclescrooch.
Behind the veneer of my glossy snapshots, a storm of emotions has been building with hurricane force. Settling in to Ghana and my new relationship has been challenging. While Diaw and I navigate cultural clashes, I too am trying to gain a foothold on my independence. The years on my own have emboldened my fierce autonomy and that makes it difficult to depend on someone else for everything.
My daily moods vacillate between grateful, inspired, irritated, lost, and defiant. At times I am downright stubborn and inflexible.
Truth be told, I have a higher than normal penchant for exoticism, but somehow this adventure takes the cake.
The first couple of weeks I was in denial that my experience had been anything but rainbows and fairy dust. My emotions were a twisted knot that required gentle hands to unravel. I have been working on releasing and surrendering while staying curious and integral to my truth. Love inspired my soul to ground on this land with this man and although I wish I could just figure it all out, I am learning to be patient, to listen, to witness.
Today was a good day.
I got myself a Bolga hat and took this photo despite my obnoxious sunburn. I feel like some lagging part of me finally arrived and I'm hopeful that these toes are gonna sink deeper into the red earth and my heart is gonna crack open to its shiniest incarnation yet.
But for now I'm grateful that I have words. If I only manage to write the truth, the burdens of my soul shall be set free.
