Day 3: Desert safari

Since we had so many activities planned, I rocked my new gold sneakers for comfort.

“God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.” – Voltaire

Printed skirt + fringe snake skin sandals (11)
It’s my birthday!!! Yes, I turn 29 today and I have been having such an awesome day.

But where there’s a will, there’s always way. Read on…
