My Journey to Maeve

Turns out my computer has a thing called iMovie. It seems that I have the software capability to make videos. So, I figured, if I was going to try my hand at making a video, it should be of my journey to Maeve. My sister-in-law, Stacy, and I boarded a plane on November 20, 2009 en route to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia... check it out (warning... there is an ugly cry involved... just pretend that you never saw that):

Ok, so I probably shouldn't have watched this while I was at work...imagine me having to explain my tears and ummm...why I wasn't working. So beautiful and precious...can't wait to watch it again when I get home. xo
