eat a peach.

This past month, I have been consistently impressed, surprised, and brought to tears by the kindness of strangers you meet in the places you travel.

A random woman we met in Dublin invited us into her home for Christmas dinner with her amazing daughters. It was incredible.
Someone in Galway let us stay in their home for a WEEK, for FREE.
A Scottish couple in Spain let me into their home for two weeks to harvest their potatoes and meanwhile gave me a place to sleep and great food to eat.

Sometimes my faith in humanity is restored. Then I read the news.

I try to hold on to the former part through everything else. Happy holidays, all!
