Disclaimer: This post was written in Johannesburg after our simple travel plans that should have taken us from Nashville to Atlanta to Amsterdam to Addis Ababa got rerouted after delay after delay and we found ourselves making impromptu stops in Accra, Ghana, and Johannesburg, South Africa. Down side…missing a day in Ethiopia with Kristen, Alysa, Emily, and Paige and the sheer exhaustion and just plain dirtiness from 36+hours of...

And my life and my house are in disarray.  (Seriously can’t remember the last time I changed my sheets. I think it was sometime last week but I’m not quite sure.) With all this traveling, another thing that has been neglected is my blog. So this is a quick play-by-play with some of my favorite photos,...
