Hey guys, I hope you guys had a great christmas and you guys are enjoying your holidays. I’m not going to lie, I DEFINITELY AM. It is amazing to be back home. There is only one problem… My mom isn’t here. She went back to Kenya to see the family, this is one of the few times where I’m not able to spend Christmas without my mom. Don’t you worry though I was still able to talk her as much I possibly can. Also as many of you would agree, the best part of the holidays is being able to be with family. Even though I wasn’t able to be with them physically, just being able to talk to them on the phone was enough. Sharing stories with them, knowing that they’re ok was the best gift I could’ve gotten. I miss them so much, but I’ll be able to see them soon. Another great part of Christmas is of course… the presents, DUH!!! My mom definitely stepped up her game this year.
Quite the collection huh? All this means that I need to make some last minute adjustments to my gift for her. I’d tell you guys what it is, but I know that mom reads the blog post religiously so I can’t spoil the surprise. Gotcha mom! Not today, you gotta be patient and wait until you come back.
Also I want to give a huge shoutout to the wolf-pack and their families for letting me share Christmas day with them. It was such a cool experience and a huge privilege as well. For them to take me into their homes and make sure that I didn’t spend Christmas alone was awesome of them and they didn’t have to do it. That’s one of the many reasons that these guys will be my friends for life.
