Traveling to Ghana
December 4, 2007

As many already know, I’m headed off the Ghana today! The blog may be a bit spotty, but I’m still going to be writing while I’m away and updating the blog when I get the chance–so keep checking back!

I will miss all of my amazing family and friends in the US and am expect lots of emails : )

Love you all!

Somebody’s Heart is Burning
October 15, 2007


Here’s what I love about travel:

Strangers get a chance to amaze you.

Sometimes a single day can bring a blooming surprise, a simple kindness that opens up a chink in the brittle shell of your heart and makes you a different person when you go to sleep–more tender, less jaded–than when you woke up.
