Tuesday again? Seriously, I feel like this past week flew by!
Wanna talk more about Africa?
I hope so, cause that’s what I’m going to talk about yet again.
This weekend I spent a lot of time with Denise and friends talking about my future in Africa and for the first time it feels real.
I am actually moving to Kitale, Kenya..and soon.
The plan is for me to move in August which kind of feels far off but at the same time I know time will fly by and it’ll be moving day before I even know it.
Summertime is always busy for us here at MJC with preparing for Art Fair and then our Trunk Keeper conference and then finally with the reveal of the new collection.
It’s seems weird to even imagine my life away from MJC and spending my days away from all my girls and the fabric and the warehouse and even Fort Wayne.
But I’m trading it all in to move all the way to Africa to spend time with the kids that I have fallen in love with and continue to work towards my dream of starting a sewing co-op with a group of ladies from the slums. I have so many crazy feelings about this new chapter of my life but I am beyond excited and can’t wait to see where I am at even a year from now. I know that along with all the amazing things that will come from this I will have my challenges and it’ll take time to adjust to the new culture and making new friends and finding my place in a whole new country. As scary as that may sound I can’t wait to just be there and finally be pursuing my dreams. Which still blows my mind on a daily basis, I’m only 21 and already able to follow my dreams and it’s all because of Denise and MJC. Cause let’s be honest, if Denise didn’t think I was cute way back when I was just an intern and kept me around who knows where I would be at in life. So, I guess what I am trying to get at is that I am beyond thankful for the opportunities Denise has allowed me to be a part of and thankful for all of your guys’ support because without you we wouldn’t be anywhere.
Okay, things got a little more sentimental than I thought they would and I could go on and on and on but I’ll just keep it short this time.
Talk to ya next week,
