Katherine – Touws River, South Africa

February 1, 2019




Let’s talk about this amazing person for a minute!!!! Two years ago today I met this beautiful soul on a workshop trip, never did I dream I would be doing a safari with this person or connect the way we did. I mean come on making new girlfriends at this age can be hard sometimes !!! I can’t go into too much of what this girl has done for me in a year without crying. She has given me hard honestly that I didn’t (at first) want to hear, she has supported me verbally and through actions of who I am and who I am becoming. She has come out of hell and high water and is one of the most (overly) generous people I know with a huge smile on her face. She came out of nowhere and absolutely loved me as a sister and I am forever grateful to her.

And this is how I see her.

Powerful. Strong. Beautiful. Happy. Adventurous and Jubilant.

There was no other picture that I could take to top this one! I mean come on…. Baby Rhinos!?!? Happy Birthday Katherine and thank you for taking me on this phenomenal adventure! If I have learned anything if it scares you it might be a good thing to try! #safari #aquilasafari
