Thankful Thursday’s

First off, I’m so thankful this week was better than last week, and that it was non-eventful in the break-in department!! I’m so happy to be able to share the GOOD this week, I mean it was Christmas after all, and I am so thankful for the “family” I have here, and my first Tanzanian …

Thankful Thursday’s

I have been debating whether or not to share this on the blog, but after thinking about it, my intention for this blog is to share my life here, my “real” life .. which includes the good, and the bad. This week, I’m sharing the bad. However, I am trying to still be thankful in …

November Highlights

How is it that November is already over!?!? And now, it’s middle of December, and I’m just now getting this written!! Pole (Sorry!)

October Highlights

Mwezi check-in Karibu Tena! Can you believe I have been here for mwezi mmoja (one month) already!  The time really has flown by, and I feel like I am finally getting into more of a routine and feeling more settled! Yay for that! I thought it would be fun to do the highlights of each …

Karibu!

I’ll let you all in on some of my Swahili lessons!! Karibu means Welcome!!! So, Welcome! Welcome to my home, and my new town! Welcome to A18- a cute little house, in the midst of the doctor’s compound right outside of KCMC (Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center- the hospital I work at). The compound is made …
