Where are we?!

This feed has moved. So what does that mean? It means that if you want to read about what we are up to you’ll have to head to…

So for those of you who are subscribed to our RSS feed please update your reader.

In a couple of days this site is going to redirect to our new one and this one will be closed. For people on the RSS feed you won’t be getting our feed unless you come to our new site!

Looking forward to seeing all you there!

Ababi Mondays: Looking back

Mary and I have been thinking a lot about this site and about those of you who read it. From your responses it seems like there are a number of people that get a lot out of our story and that is very encouraging for us. Coming this Christmas Eve we are going to make the next big step in this site and hope that all of you get more encouragement and support out of what is provided here.


Mary and I have both traveled internationally a fair amount and so far one of the best experiences we’ve had on a flight has been with Ethiopian Airlines. The plane was very well kept and fairly new compared to some that we’ve taken to Europe and the staff was always very friendly and welcoming. The only downside was the 18hr on plane time from Dulles to Addis Ababa. Well when they announced that with their new Boeing 777 they were cutting 3hrs off the time we were both really wishing we could go, then they slashed prices and now are offering this deal…

Really, if you have even been thinking about heading to Ethiopia, this is a great deal and I would encourage you to take it.

** Ethiopian Airlines did not pay us for this post, but if they wanted to we’d be opening to accepting it!


Since seeing the airline deal got me thinking about going back to Ethiopia, I decided to share a few pictures that highlight life in Addis Ababa. Enjoy.

Ababi Mondays: Design Time!

So Zinash pretty much knows now that when she goes to the doctor they are going to either spray something up her nose or they are going to stick her with a needle. I’m pretty sure we have ruined doctors visits for her. So how much does therapy cost for a lifetime fear of doctors?

It’s not all that bad. At her first pediatrician’s appointment today, she actually did really well (other than me having to pin her down for the shots). Of course we’ll see how much she remembers of the visit when we head back in a month’s time.


What I’ve been working on lately has some updates to the finding magnolia site. Hopefully next week we will have some cool announcements to post with the site. There have been lots of people who have been asking for a list of resources that we’ve used. We are going to take that list to the next level!

So in the mean time I’ll leave you with a couple of things to pique your interest…
