Last night our family did a countdown to welcome in the New Year in being so thankful to God for the year that had passed and now looking forward to the year ahead.

Starting with more books to write and launch, a quick trip to thank God and to visit my parents and celebrate our new family house being built in Fasito’o-uta, on the island of Upolu in Samoa.

We look forward to our eldest’s last year in high school with my husband’s final year in his Master’s degree as I continue finishing my studies in my PhD doctoral studies in indigenous research regarding Samoan concepts.

Best wishes and a Happy New Year ahead for 2019…
