Nǐ Hǎo from Shanghai! I am sorry for the radio silence the last few days, but apparently SCITC (along with facebook) is blocked in China. I can’t wait to give you the full update on this incredible adventure when I get back to the states, but for now, I will just have to leave you with this picture I took of the Great Wall of China. My legs are still sore from the hike to the highest point, but it was well worth it in the end!

If you can’t wait until I return for updates (who can blame you), follow me on Instagram and like me on Facebook for instant access.

And last, but certainly not least… It is hard to believe, but today is my sister’s 30th birthday! From the time I could walk, I was copying her every move. I always wanted to be just like my big sister, and it is no secret why. Happy birthday to the best big sis a girl could ask for! xo
