|Can you taste the sweat and dust? In our taxi on the way to Guinea & Sierra Leone - April 2009|
After living and loving in Albuquerque, NM for Esther & Alaric's wedding, I headed to Phoenix, AZ to see my buds Joe & Ashley - and their (now two!) babies, Mia & Tucker. I already waxed poetic about how I know Joe and Ashley in this post when I spent ten days with the Wollersheims in 2011 (wowsas - y'all are some generous friends letting me crash that long!).

|That time Joe convinced us climbing Hombori was no big deal.|
|One of the most epic pictures I've ever taken.|
While our lives have changed considerably since Mali (even since our visit in 2011!), and instead of eating stale bread and laughing cow cheese on the top of Hombori or in the back of a taxi on the way to Guinea we were eating cheese sticks and ginger ale in Joe & Ashley's pool - our friendship has been a true constant. It is such a blessing to have lifelong friends like Joe & Ashley and to be a part of their lives as their family grows. I'm already looking forward to our next visit!
