Hooray for the weekend! Our summer of almost non-stop traveling has finally come to an end and we’ll be spending more time at home until late-September. It’s been an amazing time, full of friends, food and adventure, and I have lots of photos to share over the coming weeks.
In the meantime, I’m hoping to catch a few naps, have some cuddle time with my guy, and savor the late-summer offerings at my local farmers market.
Hope you have a great weekend!

Nelson Mandela’s passing yesterday has been on my mind. A few years ago, I spent several months interning at the University of Fort Hare in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, which was Mandela’s alma mater and the oldest historically black university in southern Africa. It was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life, and the news coverage has drudged up a lot of memories.
So in addition to a few photos from the week, here’s my favorite photo from the Eastern Cape and another of some comic books I picked up while I was there. These were distributed for free to young children all over South Africa to teach them about Nelson Mandela’s legacy since, in their short lives, apartheid was a thing of the past. I think I’ll spend a little time this weekend rereading them.
