So, this is happening. We’ve been talking about going to Ethiopia for forever and this time we’re really going. In the time leading up to buying the ticket I actually felt a little sick about how much money we were spending at one time, but once it was done & I received that confirmation email? Pure joy. I don’t think I stopped smiling for about 3 hours after.

I’m so excited to see my in-laws in their country, to see where my husband grew up, to be in AFRICA. I’ve never traveled internationally, so it’s going to be interesting – but I’m so ready. Now, any idea where I can find a cute passport holder?
