Passing through India

After spending hours editing and going over all of my mother's photos, as well as mine of their brought home treasures, I feel like I've ALMOST been to India... but not quite. Just wanted to let you know that I'm working on some wonderful posts. While you wait, please check out the gorgeous photos and beautiful words of Christine, of Lavender and Limes, who happened to be in some of the same parts of India at the exact same time as my family! Scroll down to the beginning of her trip if you get a chance. Not only are her posts stunning, but her reason for being there is wonderful. She's even holding an India give-away of some things she brought back!

These photos were taken from a boat ride out on the Ganges River.
