Welcome friend! I'm Ali and I am a law student from Dallas, Texas. After my first year of law school I accepted a year long legal internship with International Justice Mission on the other side of the world. So, I packed up this January and moved to Africa-- and I want you to join the journey with me!

On this website I post weekly stories about life in Uganda. I love sharing short stories, good recipes and simple joys. Life is better when we place intention in every step and search for the extraordinary in the mundane. I am not always good at this, but I am trying and I want to encourage you to try as well. I hope my stories inspire you to celebrate the extraordinary within your own life. So pour a hot cup of coffee and pull up a chair, I can't wait for you to join me.

Lastly, as you follow along, I hope you consider supporting me. Support through prayers, support through shares and support through donations, the smallest things make the biggest differences.
