My mother was an incredible, inspiring woman, I wish everyone could have known her. She shaped who I am today and has been the biggest influence in my life, I know she had a huge impact on Shawn too, she loved him fiercely, and I loved their relationship, often found them talking deep into the night on a moonlit cabana rooftop plotting the next project, they were very close. When mum passed away I revisited all our notes made together and plans yet to unfold, Shawn and I decided to commit to the plan and continue to realize these dreams on our own, we were also financially and emotionally invested already. We were lucky enough to work alongside my mum for 5 years, with Shawn now in the mix - we were the perfect team, “the three musketeers” reads the title above all my notes from that time - sky was the limit. Mum had great comfort at the end knowing we would take the reins on her vision and honour her memory and beautiful spaces whole heartedly. We currently cradle The Cabanas in Lamu, our nature sanctuary - Mukima on Mt Kenya and our shop - Blue Rhino Africa.
