World Cup Madness: A Look Back at South Africa

It’s been a while since my last post.  This past month has been filled to the brim with my first college reunion, a business trip to cloudy Boca Raton to celebrate the 1 year launch of our company, a wonderful vacation to the Edinburgh for my best friend’s wedding reception, and an epic birthday celebration in London. It was also the start to the 2014 World Cup, which for those of you who know me, is a practically religious event, as deemed by the great John Oliver.  Back in 2010, I had the tremendous opportunity to go to South Africa and watch some of the opening games with our very dear, very amazing family friends. While I settle down and resist unpacking my suitcases, I thought I would share some of my favorite photos. xo Aheli
