On March

This month has been a really busy one so far. My sis et family are here on a visit and we are all happy to have her and the little ones around again. The house is always buzzing with noise and activity only children can make. My father is so cute, he can not get enough of the kids and my 2 year old niece plays the "hurt and misunderstood" part so well she breaks his heart. She really manipulates him to get her way, and she is so good at it! Ahhh, KIDS!

On Thursday I went on a desert safari with some friends and it was fun. They had dune bashing, belly dancing, camel rides and even sand boarding! The sky was lovely and it was a full moon at night. LOVELY.

Today is Mothers day here so we celebrated it with flowers, cards and cake.Mom was super happy, which is always nice to see. Happy Mother's Day to all Mama's out there!

7 Billion

National Geographic brings us a series that everyone should be interested in:. 7 Billion people and one planet!!

Basically it tells you what the "typical" face of those 7 billion is, how the resources are currently being divided and the rate at which the population keeps growing. It is a campaign that is directed at raising awareness to the way wealth, services and natural products are currently being used and to shed a light on what we should do to better manage them.
