this is me and my papa. he died when i was 17, and there still isn't a day when i don't think about him. one of my most vivid memories of him, is watching nature shows. i hated them, and when i asked why i had to watch him, he would say, "Miss America, one day you are going to marry a doctor, and when he takes you to Africa, you need to know what you are looking at."

this is me in kenya, where my husband grew up, christmas 2004. i swear i am not usually this adventurous. my husband makes me do these things. without him there are so many adventures i would never have.
