I Found Yellow in April 2017!!

April you were the breath of fresh spring air that I so desperately needed. I took you in in big, bold gasps. I needed you to be what you were to me so thank you so much for coming through. Thank you.

I found yellow in new and profound ways.

For the first time since Craving Yellow was created in January 2015, I finally got to meet, en masse, many of my readers and subscribers. The highlight of this year so far has been hosting you at my Meet and Greet!! Ahhhhh!!! It was THE BEST THING ever and honestly, I was more excited to meet you than I think you were to meet me!

I found love and sunshine amongst other creatives and public figures.

I sat down for lemonade with Grace Sowairina whose presence in the media I’ve always admired.

I laughed with Sheila Mwanyigah who’s giggly radio personality always had me in tickles.

I hang out with Maureen and Wambui of Elani and Wambui’s bestie, Mwende and then went on to concert practice with them. Their voices are divine! Practice with them honestly felt like a private concert!

With Wambui during Paint The Run Kenya! Girrrrllll!! This was too much fun!

Michelle!!! She's just so talented I tell you!

I shared LIFE with Makena. She is such a calm and reassuring personality. Chatting with her felt like therapy.

I made ART with Patricia Kihoro. Let me tell you! I cannot wait to share our pieces with you! She’s a warm, supportive and genuine soul.

I bonded with Kambua over life in Northern America. Whatwith snow storms and missing home during spring break and all.

I reminisced with Amina Kenya about our days in high school. Amina truly is a ball of talent!

I was inspired by Lucia Musau - she’s a very genuine and down-to-earth soul. Even though we only met for 45 minutes, I knew right away I had lots to learn from her about life and blogging in Kenya.

Galavanting with Miss Turu around Nairobi! :-)

I transversed Nairobi with Miss Turu. Hmm..the bushes on Ngong Road can testify! We’ve had SO MUCH fun. What I’ve admired most is her openness and willingness to show me the ropes.

I talked blogging with Nancie Mwai. Now y’all know she’s one of the OG bloggers in Kenya. She started in 2010 I believe, so she’s been in this game for years and she sure knows her business!

I talked relocation with Sunshine Balogun. We talked about what it means to set up shop in new countries and make a living off a creative passion. Need I say her two little ones are beyond adorable!

I hang out with Wambui, one of my readers who I bumped into at Patricia's show.

I hang out with Nadia and Karlina, and of course got to attend Nadia’s love-filled wedding! What a fantastic time that was connecting with old family and friends.

Oh and how could I almost forget - I remembered Nairobi with Rachel. I really did. We’ve been up and about and she’s helped me re-adjust to so many things. She and her mum honestly know where to find the best of anything in Nairobaaee.

And my Bible Study Group! These girls, I tell you. I couldn’t have asked God for other girlfriends to walk through life with.

I met with the lovely Lyra - one of Kenya's most talented photographers. She's going places people!! So inspiring!

I sat in the glow of Pat Okello who's writing a super inspiring book on Women in Entrepreneurship in Kenya. So much life was given! I cannot wait to share my thoughts with you here on the blog very soon!

Mama Taji aka Loulou Shani! She's my type of crazy!

April, thank you for infusing life into me again. I’m basking. I’m basking.

Love and Sunshine,
