Eid!


Today is the 27th day of Ramadan, a month that is a true blessing, at least that's how I feel about it.
Ramadan comes to an end either on Saturday or Sunday and then it's Eid!!

I love Eid!

Not because of the festivities, and the shopping and the gatherings. Not because of the lovely food and tons of cookies (kahk)..I just love eid..

It brings back so many memories of my childhood, and I just love waking up early in the morning to go pray with my cousins, and meet all the random people- it just puts me in a cheerful mood.

It's a long weekend! Friday, Saturday,Sunday, Monday and Tuesday off, heaven much?

Did you see this? Thank you Aya, for sharing! I think you've already read that on Diamond in the Rough but I should link!

Cait has brought to my attention that I have forgotten to mention in my last post that we are blessed. For we are. We are blessed with our souls. A soul that connects on so many different levels. Like a ray of light-that which forms the rainbow. A soul that can feel, even that who is not present. A soul that believes in beauty.
Thank you for reminding me, beautiful :)

I loved learning about Eid. There seem to be so much good vibes in the air over Cairo, I wish it was tangible.

I've been here, dollface; I've been around. I just haven't had anything email-worthy to say recently, that's all.

But I am here, and right now I am blowing you kisses across the miles...

Happy Eid Sara! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you for your lovely comment. We LOVED Egypt, Cairo was completely fabulous! The heat was just right and seeing the busy streets late at night full of people and lights was wonderful!

Wish I was there now...!

It makes me wish I lived with you. I mean... not WITH you, with you... just, like, near you. You know, so I can have as much fun as you do.

Even though I'm not Muslim, I look forward to Eid too! I love visiting our friends during their holiday, and the fact that cafes are open again in the afternoon ;)

And thanks so much. You yourself are a blessing and an encouragement. Thanks for reminding us and me of that too!

love,
Cait
p.s. that picture of the books and velvet ribbon bookmarks might be my favourite thing ever.
