Pictures from Alexandria

 
beautiful Alexandria

I have one less follower :(

Nine days until my birthday, and on my extraordinary list is: a new job, and today I got really good news, I had sen an article to this local magazine (that I had applied to work at as a junir editor and was rejected) and they contacted me telling me they will publish my piece in their October issue!!!

That's one thing I have always wanted to do!

Things are finally looking up and I am thankful. Thank you for being there for me, and for encouraging and reassuring me.

 
lol having our morning coffee at Starbucks

Tomorrow is our second anniversary, and I can't think of anything to make (but a card ofcourse, because that's one thing I always make) but I owe it to Mohammed, that I thank him for not leaving when everyone thought he should. And when I almost literally pushed him away.

 
Isn't it a divine city?


The view from our place in Alexandria, it's beautiful! I would sit there and feel the wind on my face and read, have tea, and read, have coffee, and read!

 
You can also see part of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina from our balcony!
I am trying to work on my almost non existant photography skills, so please let me know what you think? How is everyone's week so far? How was/is your Monday?

It looks absolutely stunning, you are very lucky to have been able to relax in such beatiful surroundings.
Congratulations on your article, you will have to post it when you get it published.
And, congratulations on your anniversary.
No one knows your hearts more than yourselves; don't let other people's views affect yours and your bf's relationship, they don't know what you have!

Alexandria looks amazing! I'll have to visit one day. And what a gorgeous view! I'm so jealous.

My Monday was wonderful. I went on my first date in years. We went to a movie, had dinner, all the usual things. It was really nice & a great way to start the week.

Well, you seem to be back at 100. *quiet laughter* I don't quite _get_ the whole follower thing, myself. I guess because I don't go around following masses of people, mostly because I find it overwhelmingly noisy to see all of that showing up, shouting at me all the time. But there are dozens of websites I read regular as clockwork that I don't follow-with-my-name-on-a-list. I have 4 (this makes me laugh again) and I don't really know why I even have the 4. Poor things aren't getting much for their money, you know. I would feel stunned into silence if I had physical proof that huge lots of people were actually paying attention to anything I said; it might be enough to make me give the whole thing up entirely. Now, at least, I can pretend that it is all just a quiet conversation with myself and (with a few small exceptions -- like you, beautiful) not really anyone else.

(your hair is still absurdly adorable, you)
