My husband spent half of each year of his childhood in this beautiful country. I have had the amazing opportunity, since we married five years ago, to travel with him for 5-8 weeks four times. We stayed home last winter because E was born and only a month old when my in-laws left. This year our bags were packed mostly filled with diapers and things a one year old needs. My carry on was full of snacks, new picture books and Sesame Street episodes filled my phone. The anxiety of 48+ hours of travel until we reached our home half way across the world could have easily paralyzed me. Everyday I gave it to God, I mean He was the reason we were going there so who am I if I don’t trust Him completely.

Our travels went smoothly. I have found myself saying countless times that “Evie is an easy-going gal” and that “Evie is very good at adjusting to situations, as are most children.” But in all honesty I know that it is by the favor and grace of God that we made it safely to Mumbai with our heads still on and no mama tears on the record. I had my wonderful husband to help me, a wonderful grandma that walked her down the aisle and a grandpa who made her smile from her seat. But by the grace of God we were safe and sound and found ourselves in our 5 week home as far as one could possibly be from our Minnesota home.

This year as I blog the images from our trip I decided I would do it differently then years past. Instead of daily posts, which I had no time for as I was trying to live each day in a third world country with a one year old, I decided to do more themed posts. I hope that the pictures below immerse you into a culture that is different from the States western ways. A country thats landscape and way of life is like nothing that I have ever seen on this side of the world. From the little shops to the fields of cotton I hope you feel as if you walked down a village street and explored a little bit of this beautiful country.
