'My Marvellous Mundane Blogger' Lauren Simpson stands in front of a Ghanaian quilt made by artist Tei Huagie

Hello and Akwaaba (a Ghanaian Twi word meaning Welcome)!

Born and raised in South Africa, I created this site to tell the stories of our expat life in Accra Ghana. I have written extensive blog posts on various aspects of life in Ghana that you will find here. Our family has now moved to Westfield, New Jersey USA and I have started blogging about our recent travels here.

I am passionate about words and photography and I love Clarissa Pinkola Estes sentiment when it comes to stories; “I hope you will go out and let stories, that is life, happen to you, and that you will work with these stories….water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.”

Thanks for reading and please share the posts if you find them useful! – Lauren Simpson
