I'M BAAAAACK!!! 

It has been one heck of a trip - 3 weeks, 2 countries, tons of major cities, and a countless amount of memories!

 Taj Mahal, Agra, India  What a wonder-ful view (you see what i did there)? the taj mahal is one of the 7 wonders of the world! honestly, so much dedication and detail went into creating such a beautiful monument.

  Kerala - God's Own Country   Kerala comes from 'kera' in Malayalam, which means coconut. No surprise here - Kerala is the land of coconuts!

 Elephant Village - Jaipur   meet chanda, a beautiful 28 year old indian elephant from Jaipur. jeffrey and I spent quite some time with her. we first got to know her by petting her and showering her with hugs and kisses! we fed her bamboo, painted her nails and butt (lol), went on a very relaxing 15-20 minute ride, and wrapped up our elephant experience by giving her some water to drink.   You might be wondering why we painted Chanda's butt. When i was a little girl, I asked daddy how he learned to paint. like any girl would, i believed him when he told me the first time he painted was on an elephant's butt. 23 years later, i came to realize he was joking! And with that, this picture was taken in honor of me believing his story (all these years).
