April Showers Bring May Flowers

May 01, 2020

Goodbye, snow. HELLO, flowers!

The spring blossoms just sprung here this week and it’s about darn time!

With the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic downturn, and worldwide lockdowns, I think it’s safe to say that spring 2020 wasn’t what we were expecting.

But now that I see the beautiful flowers on the hills behind my home, I’m reminded of what the Spring season represents. It represents the hope that good weather is coming and that we’re exiting out of a dark, cold winter. 

And, in light of the current situation, I’d like to think that it also represents the hope that better things are coming and that we will be exiting out of this pandemic (and it’s negative effects) pretty soon. 

So from the super blooms putting the petal to the metal in California,

to the butterflies getting out of their cocoon in Maryland,

to the flower fields reaching their peak in British Columbia,

to the hills coming alive with the sound of music in Switzerland,

to the wildflowers creating the perfect photo to share with your buds in Washington,

to the snow melting and making you water-fall in love with nature in Iceland,

to simply being able to hang out and enjoy the beautiful outdoors (whether in Virginia or in your own hometown),

…. May the hope of Spring cheer you up and get you excited for the good things to come!

Speaking of good things...

Here’s to stopping to smell the flowers every once in a while & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

From being caught in the pyramid-dle of history in Cairo, to taking in the Israeli great views of Jerusalem, to resting on the Abu’ndant sands of Abu Dhabi.

Uganda Love This

September 11, 2020

It’s been 8 years since the idea for Taaluma Totes was born while on a life-changing trip to Uganda.

Since then, we’ve been able to fund 41 microloans for small business owners living in Uganda.

From Moses, a 24-year-old coffee farmer who used his loan to buy mulch.

Taaluma travelers have had a very gouda time in Holland over the years. 

From getting caught in a Holland-daze over the beauty of the land (and to becoming a big fan of the windmills), to discovering the magical world of Nether-Netherland, to having a wheely good time petal-ing around the city.
