Beautiful curtains and no more security light blasting into my room

Reminders and encouraging notes on the wall

Dreaming for the future

Living in a safe neighborhood where we can walk at night

Watching a random parade from the sidewalk

Caroline’s quick translations even while in Benin

GIF chats with Dianna and sharing a hilarious video clip with her and Andrea
