If there is one thing that K and I are not, it’s romantic. We are not the “gaze into each other’s eyes” nor the “You are my entire world” kind. If anything, we are two individuals who are the bestest of friends who wants the best for each other and who simply love one another for Allah’s sake.

Balancing The Big and The Small

March 23, 2015

For the longest time, I thought everything has to be in big, grand gestures. Love has to be loudly proclaimed, and achievements have to be substantial. “Go big or go home” – they say.

K and I have been married for more than two years now, Alhamdulillah but I have never gotten around to look through the photos of our big day. Today, I finally remembered about them and as I was looking at the stills, I was just overcome by so much love for my family – my own and K’s.

The whole of last week, there was one particular theme or topic or thing-y that keeps repeating in my every day.

Thoughts From The Blue City

January 22, 2015

Over the past weekend, I took a little break and headed over to Chefchouen, or what most people would endearingly remember as “The Blue City”. It was my first time travelling without K, so that in itself was something very exciting yet equally frightening for me.
