“Our aspirations are out possibilities” – Samuel Johnson When I’m feeling stressed or disconnected with life, there is one escape that has always brought me home. Travel. Traveling has been one of the most important aspects of my life besides parenthood and marriage. It has inspired me, challenged me and brought me to understand not only myself better but this amazing world we live in. If I can’t travel, then the next best escape for me is nature. I adore […]
Hello Readers and email subscribers…. Just a quick update. It has come to my attention that my posts are being emailed twice! I am working with WordPress to resolve this issue. I haven’t done anything on my end so I’m not sure what is going on. But I sincerely apologize for the annoying duplicate emails and hopefully will get this resolved ASAP. Thanks for your patience! thirdeyemom
In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d post some photos of the mother’s around the world I’ve seen. The more I travel and learn about mother’s in other countries through my advocacy work, the more and more I realize that we are all the same. We are all mothers whose number one priority in life is our children. Nurturing, loving, holding, and caring for our babies from the first time we birth them to the time they leave us […]
This week’s photo challenge happens to be a favorite of mine: Pattern. I adore the patterns of the brilliant rusty orange-colored tiled rooftop found in homes throughout the world. Two places in particular have my favorite styles: Southern France and Antigua, Guatemala. Here is a sample of some of the dynamic patterned rooftops I’ve captured throughout my travels. Antigua, Guatemala

Perhaps one of the most iconic attractions in all of Paris is the beloved Tour Eiffel. Built in 1889 at the entrance to the World Fair, the Eiffel Tower has become the most celebrated cultural symbol in all of France and is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world. Standing 320 metres (1,050 ft) tall, her iron-latticed wires spire upwards to the Parisien sky. Here are some shots I took of the lovely Eiffel Tower while I was in Paris. […]
Life is a whirlwind right now. I just got back from France a week ago and now am soon heading to India on my first-ever trip as a social good blogger! I will be traveling to learn more about the amazing non-profits we work with as a member of the Global Team of 200. I am so incredibly excited I can hardly stand it.

This week’s photo challenge is to capture a photo or set of photos which are taken from above an object. Just coming back from France, I could hardly resist these photos I took looking over some of the beautiful, delightful things I saw in the world of haute cuisine and fresh produce stands. Beware….these photos are certain to make you hungry!

This week’s photo challenge, Culture, is quite fitting since I literally just got off the plane from Paris which is perhaps the culture capital of the world. Still jet-lagged and behind, I had a chance to upload my photos from my trip to France and have an astounding number to sort through: 1,400 taken in nine days flat! (I broke my record!). I only went through the first set of photos this morning but feel they portray an excellent look […]
