It is funny how you can walk into a room and feel like no time has passed.
Jenna is one of my best friends and I am blessed that she works and lives in Kenya. She keeps me grounded, is honest and shares truth always especially in the moments I need it most. Our relationship is authentic and true and I love that she is a part of my life.
Being in Wisconsin to see Sean’s dad was amazing and then getting to see my best friend was worth every moment of the drive. Jenna and her husband, O’Neil just got back to see family for 3 months over the holidays before they head back to Kenya, so it worked out perfectly for us to “drop in” and spend an evening with them.
We drove up from Madison, WI and are so thankful for her sister, Abigail and her family for opening their home to us. We only stayed one night, but they felt like family. They welcomed us with open arms and showered us with many goodies!
The best part of the evening is Jenna taught me how to make good ol Kenyan Biryani. She is my lifesaver because later in this trip I need to show off my skills with making a local Kenyan dish I promised I could make. Jenna brought back the right Kenyan spices and taught me the tricks of the trade.
Thank you, girl, for making me look good by teaching me how to cut ‘fat moons’ and master the skill of eye balling every measurement that was thrown into the pot.
And just like that, after a quick stop, hug and yummy dish made. We are on the road again. Here we come St. Louis.
