Many hours after leaving Portland, OR, Mumee is in Ghana. She had a six hour lay over in D.C., so she was able to spend some time with my Mom before the final leg to Accra.

I met her at the airport this afternoon, and we arrived back on campus around 3:30 PM. Upon arrival, we relaxed for a bit and then went on an abbreviated campus tour. Mums met Auntie Louisa (and made several purchases, stay tuned for her reviews) and saw my humble abode. We had a nice dinner at the University Guest Center, chit chatted a little more, and called it a night.

I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW...did the caps lock give it away?

How cool is Mumee? She is here, with me, in Africa, AND she is heading off tomorrow for a week long tour to do some exploration of her own. #worldsbestgrandma

I hope and pray that I am this adventurous and awesome at her age.

As if life weren't good enough already, Mumee came bearing gifts. Thanks to the combined effort of Mumee and my mom, I now have a supply of candy, peanut butter, granola bars, and GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.



  1. Gosh I love that woman. I, too, hope I am like her one day!- Nicole
