around the States in 40 days


Our blog quieted down in December because we have traveled in the USA and visiting people. What fun to see old (and young) faces, catch up with family, and good-ole hang out. Rich, rich, rich are our spirits. Warm, warm, warm are our hearts.

The ONE thing we cannot get in Swaziland? all of you who live in the USA. 

We fly back on 11 January, so less than 2 weeks to cram in phone calls, taxes, online doula continuing education classes, visits with family & supporters & friends, deep conversations, plus other random “internet” tasks we can easily carry out here. I’m amazed how little time we’ve had to do these tasks before now.

For now, enjoy a few photos of what we’ve been up to this month.

We spent time in Florida with Sean's extended family, mom, and step-dad.
