{Reader Appreciation Giveaway!} $30 Gift Card to REI + More!

Hello everyone!
I landed safely back in Jo'burg late Friday evening and have been busy getting back into the swing of work and studies over the past few days.  Jurg and I also had our engagement party on Saturday evening, and it was so great getting to see my fiance again and being able celebrate with good friends!  Needless, to say life has been a bit of a whirlwind since getting back. 
New York was incredible and it was also great getting to see family and friends in California and being able to celebrate milestone birthdays with my mom and grandma!  I have loads of photos to share on here and am hoping to get back into a normal blogging routine as from next week.

Until then...
