UAE National Day

Around September or October, the UAE starts to look very festive in anticipation of UAE National Day. Think of it as 4th of July/Independence Day, meets Flag Day, meets New Year’s Eve. It is a big deal here in the UAE. School’s are out, many businesses close, and everywhere you turn in the UAE is decked out in the country’s colors. Most schools have a huge celebration leading up to the day, and my school was no different. The students bring treats to the teachers, all the buildings are decorated in the colors of the flag, and just about everyone starts to celebrate the founding of the country. This year the UAE celebrated their 46th year as a country. Check out some of the pics below.



30 Days In

Today marks my one month anniversary as an expat. I’ve learned so much in the last thirty (30) days about people, my new home, and myself. This move was by far the biggest faith step that I’ve ever taken, and so far the step has been worth it. Has everything been perfect and worked out the way that I would have liked it? No. Have I had days where I thought I was crazy for making this move? Yes. Would I do it all over again? Absolutely!

Here’s to more amazing months, more great food, great friendships, and all that God has in store for me. Over the last month, I’ve taken lots of videos and pictures. Find the pictures below. As for the videos, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel (link attached).
