Travel Ban Blues and Blessings

Updated: Jul 6

Due to the C-19 travel ban Marieke is unable to return to the U.S. and finishes her degree through six months of online classes all the way from South Africa. It is both a blessing and a curse as Marieke gets to spend time with her family, celebrating her first birthday at home in 7 years. Marieke and Reever spend 8 months without seeing each other. Between internet connection issues, power outages and late night classes Marieke soldiers through. Evie the bull terrier becomes her companion in all her late night online class sessions.
