Feels like forever since I’ve blogged. I’ve really been out of.. well words, more than time. Its been an amazing summer alhamdolillah.
First Moo khala came – originally for four days but ended up staying for four months. Then Nana came and we took our magical trip across quebec. we went way, way north and explored deep into quebec. We stayed in hotels with double storeyed executive room and cabins with our car across from us. lol. we trekked across hills and plunged into freezing cold water. We saw people ice fishing, visited gold mines and Aboriginal Reserves. We went to Mt Tremblant and saw Le Habitat.
Then Nani came and we ventured out for a family reunion in NY. We had cousins from pakistan, washington, LA, NJ, seattle, chicago, TO all gathered together for a week of madness – aka Emaan’s aqeeqah. Then moo khala had her bridal shower and left. Nadia phoppo randomly decided to get engaged right before ramadan and then married right after – in just about a month. With all the ramadan craziness, eid dramas and then the wedding… with nayma khala dropping in for a spontaneous and brief 10 day visit in the middle… its been a whirlwind of a summer! In the process of all this, we became Cousins to a new one, and a friend too.
Now its alot calmer. but the madness sort of ensues due to the fact that i leave for pak in just under a month iA with a short trip to malaysia and singapore in the middle. Im excited and apprehensive at the same time. Its going to be marvelous IA. The packing is crazy because two suitcases are of just gifts. one is of our clothes, one for food and another for our trip to malaysia.
Most stories to follow. for now thats it.
