Photos: Flowers + Macchiatos #Ethiopia


For the past few weeks the news has been utterly insufferable. It’s just been really bad – there’s no eloquent way to say it. Bad! In fact, I needed to back away from my laptop last week because the news was a little too much to bear.

I am the type of person who reads as much as I can. I get my news from curated Twitter followers, Flipboard, Facebook (from time to time), and my daily rounds of the major US and UK newspapers and magazines.

Now that I think about it, that may be a bit much! 

So, in honor of how much I need to just get away from the 24-hour news cycle again, behold: flowers + macchiatos from Ethiopia. And a great song at the end.

    • Thanks, Diana, for stopping by. It’s amazing how much bad news there is right now. It seems every year there is one extended period when everything just seems overwhelming. Hopefully it will pass soon.

      Hope you’re well, too!

  1. Yes like you Jennifer I tend to get utterly discouraged as well. It is hard when you care so much about the world and making it a better place and so much war, suffering and destruction occurs. Sometimes we all need a break from it even if it is what we do. :) Miss you and hope you are well. Lovely pictures from a wonderful trip!
