My Weekend in a Nutshell
I have been so lucky to spend the past five days visiting my best friend and her beautiful family in Toronto. I barely picked up the camera, as I spent my time soaking in my newborn niece and precocious nephew. That baby girl is the most joyful infant, always ready with a gorgeous smile that fills the room - just holding her was therapeutic, and I've never had so much fun playing with trucks and trains - I especially loved hearing my nephew sing and watching him dance :) It was wonderful spending time catching up with my dear friends, and spending one on one time with these sweet kids that I love. I would not have been able to make this trip if it weren't for my mother's generosity, so a big thanks goes out to her.
Before catching my flight home, my friend and I made a stop to a West African grocery store where I stocked up (with the little room remaining in my luggage!) on a few ingredients I would not have been able to find at home. I now have special fufu mix, ground melon seeds, dried okra, and some baked treats I have already forgotten the name of (but where quite tasty). I even picked up a special fufu pounding stick :)
The girls spent the weekend with hubby, and it was a joy to see their smiling faces waiting at the airport, and finding out they missed me as much as I missed them. Who knew?
