South Africa!


As I mentioned on this blog, we spent 2 weeks in South Africa this past December! My brother met a wonderful girl who grew up there, and so it’s where they decided to have the wedding.

What better way to show you what we did than to give you some pictures?

    I love love love seeing and hearing about people who have visited South Africa! We have a beautiful home here and wish more people could experience the magic it can hold! Did you get to try any foods???? Sorry, that is absolutely one thing I have come to love since immigrating here! I really hope you had a wonderful time here! It’s great to here about an American guy marrying a South African woman because 90% of the time it’s like me and it was an American girl who met a South African guy!

    Looks like a dream wedding. I’ve never been to South Africa, but the venue and facilities are amazing. Can’t imagine what the kids thought of walking out their door and seeing an elephant! Congratulations to the bride & groom!
