Akwaaba means...

Akwaaba means
"welcome" in Ghana, West Africa.
but you really don't have to travel that far
to enjoy the spoils.

so take your time. slowly sip your mango juice.

enjoy the sweet scent of geraniums.

close your eyes.
breathe deeply and take it all in.

embark upon a regal retreat.

and indulge in the comforts of home away from home.

silence fills the air tonight,
rest is only a pillow away.

*I have been very blessed to experience the pure pleasure of Akwaaba Mansion in celebration of my best friend's birthday. If you ever get the opportunity, do allow Akwaaba to spoil you!

What a wonderful, instant meditation (Is that an oxymoron?). I was immediately transported and feel marvelously refreshed, though it took only a few seconds to read the post and view the images. It was my lucky day when Wanda told her readers about your interview of her.

I LOVE that porch! I think I could spend days there! SO much beauty right here!

Marilyn said...

Love it all, but the pile of word rocks was my favorite. Oh I would love having that sitting in my yard.

PinkInklings said...

Yes, the word rocks ROCK! I might not ever see them cuz I'd be swooning on that porch, gazing at those geraniums. Lovely...

Relyn said...

You are blessed. WOW!! Of course, your best friend is blessed, too. She gets to spend a birthday like this with you.

I looked at these pictures and felt such an air of peace. The rookery is absolutely brilliant (as are every one of your posts!). Just had to share this one with my husband.
Thank you.
