The plants are starting to come up!! My favorite time of the year is when the weather starts to get little warmer, the earth gets a little greener and the smiles get a little brighter. No more seasonal depression! 🙏🏼🌱🌻🌞
Yesterday I had the privilege to experience my first Holi! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was in the states I always said to myself “I’m going to go to that ‘place’ where they celebrate ‘that’ holiday and see what it’s all about”. I clearly knew nothing about what holiday this was, where it was celebrated, or even why it’s special. I just knew it looked like a lot of fun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward to now, I am an expat living in India and getting to celebrate Holi for the first time was really cool! I learned so much about the holiday. It’s not just about throwing paint and colors! Behind all of the fun there is a true message and that made celebrating so much more meaningful! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy Holi to those of you celebrating! Let me know what your favorite holiday is to celebrate around the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Over the hills and far away
A million miles from L.A
Just anywhere away with you
I know we've got to get away
Someplace where no one knows our name
We'll find the start to something new
Just take me anywhere, take me anywhere..." ✨
My mom and I have had a vacation planned for Washington DC for a whole year. The entire year I’ve been completely chill, but now that it’s only a month away my anticipation is growing. I keep day dreaming about flying on a plane, eating those delicious Biscotti cookies, and spending time with my mom. We haven’t traveled alone together since I was 12. Where was your last trip too? Where are you dreaming of going? #travelfever#qualitytime#momanddaughter
That moment I felt so scared, but the fear of height and the beautiful view from that cliff left even more excited to get that shot.

While Ethiopia is more known for it's rock cut churches in Lalibela, the Debre Birhan Selassie Church in Gondar stood out more to me because of the brilliantly painted interiors esp the ceiling of 👼 looking down upon you ..... Must visit in Ethiopia
Tinubu Square (formerly Independence Square), is an open space landmark located in Broad Street, Lagos Island, Lagos State, Nigeria. It used to be called Ita Tinubu in memory of Madam Efunroye Tinubu, a slave trader and business magnate, before it was named Independence Square by leaders of the First Republic and subsequently Tinubu Square.
This was built in 1960.
It was originally named Independence Square in honor of Nigeria's independence in 1960
In 2007, it was reconstructed and renamed Tinubu Square to commemorate the business aristocrat Madam Tinubu who died in 1887
The square is iron-fenced with two flowing fountains, flowers and tropical trees in it. It also contains a life-size statue of Madam Tinubu on a cenotaph.
It is a gated square so entry is prohibited except on special occasions.
Before heading to Tinubu Square, here are some helpful things to take along with you:
It has some magnificent sculptures like the Eagles, the statue of Madam Tinubu, stature of Lagos' popular blind minstrel Kokoro the Drummer and the Reclining Reader.
The greenery of the well groomed plants blends well with the water fountains to give a very breathtaking and grand scenery.
Sorry for being MIA, I’ve been focusing on things that really matter 🕊 Now I feel a bit sick, I might have a travel fever🌡 So tell me your ’go-to’ places in Europe? Beach and good food is a must ☝🏽 I’ve never been to Greece or Croatia, but there’s a lot of beautiful places in Italy too... 🤔 #travelfever#beautifuldestinations#frenchriviera#nicefrance#visitnice
