In two days, I’m going to be hopping on a plane, flying for over 24 hours, to Singapore. In two days, I’ll be saying goodbye to my husband and dog for 16 days. In two days, I’m going to be halfway around the way and boy, am I excited.

Well, not just excited, ECSTATIC. Southeast Asia is an incredibly special place to me. After just spending a week in the Philippines last April, my life has been forever changed. I’ve never met so many incredible people in my life. They are beautiful, resilient, happy, proud, humble, forgiving, loving and triumphant. I came back from the trip a different person, a better person, and I owe that all to them.

I’m getting all sappy, I’m sorry. But this trip isn’t like my other work ones. The first week in Singapore will be all business, attending conferences, eating fancy meals and staying in five star hotels. But the second week in Thailand? It’ll be a little difference. Instead of big comfy beds and room service, I’ll be living in a mud hut with 8 other ladies. The biggest amenity we’ll have is indoor plumping. I am so incredibly happy though, because I’ll be there making a difference.

I’m going on behalf of The Giving Lens, a nonprofit geared towards teaching underprivaledged children the skills of photography. This will inspire them to go to school and learn a craft, which will keep them educated and excited about their futures. The NGO we’re going to stay with is even more dear to me. They focus on helping girls who are at a high risk for sex trafficking. I can not talk about it without sobbing, but I’m beyond ready to help these girls and protect them from all of the evil in this world.

As you can tell, I’m a giant mess of excitement and anxiety. That’s why this easy sausage pita pizza is on my menu for this week. It’s very easy and very filling, and since I didn’t eat until 6pm yesterday, that’s a good thing. Most of that has to due with a slight stomach flu, but even still, I’m a chicken with its head cut off.  So please be patient with me these next few weeks as posts may be sporadic and, well, crazed.
