There are over 400 posts hidden within the pages of this blog. Feel free to peruse the archives which are organized by month and category.
I wrote a book called The Yellow Envelope about a gift my husband and I were given before we left on our adventure and our attempts to pay that gift forward around the world. The book will be published by Sourcebooks in April, 2017 but it is available for pre-order now (click the button below).
