I've been reading her blog since before I knew I was moving to Jordan. Heck, I've been reading her blog since before SHE knew SHE was moving to Jordan. Today, I finally met Connie, whom many of you know as Whale Ears and Other Wonderings. If you haven't yet subscribed to her blog, you must do so immediately.
