2 Cities in 10 Days

2 Cities in 10 Days

Talk about traveling with the whole family (yes all 6 kids) in our big “Tran” (it fits 12) and all of our things including some handmade gifts. What a trip. We had so much fun. Driving from Maryland to Toronto took us about 9 hours. We left really early so we made very few stops. Plus we were still fasting so need to stop for food. We saw the beautiful wind mills on the way up and once we hit the border it was awesome to see the Canadian flag. My best friend, Salimah, has her own midwifery clinic in Brampton, Ontario called AMMA Midwives. She also makes a delicious homemade Lovenade which is an lavender infused lemonade that is sold at Modah in Mississauga, ON. We celebrated Eid with Salimah and her family. Everyone looked really nice. We took the kids out to several places to have fun. Their first elephant ride! I took some time out to do a mini photoshoot at a waterfall in Hamilton. A little unfortunate mishap was when someone hit our vehicle while it was parked and all the kids were in the car. That big passenger van moved too when it was struck. I was so mad. Luckily all ended well. We ran our Henna Event & Social at Modah on July 9th where I got to meet some of the fabulous Toronto area henna artists and got to see family. I haven’t seen my Aunty Joan in many years and my cousin even longer. It was so amazing seeing them and getting to do henna for them! My Aunty Joan is...

Back in Maryland

Back in Maryland

I’m back! I got in late Thursday evening. Stay tuned for my coming blog post: 2 Cities in Ten Days. I drove with all 6 kiddos across the border into the USA from  Canada which took me a total of about 12 hours. It should really only be about 9 hours but we stopped a few times and I got really tired a few times but we made it. It’s great to be back home in Maryland. People always ask me if I prefer Canada over the USA or vice versa. I actually like each place for different reasons. I always will love home (Canada) since those are my roots. Maryland is an area where I feel like I’ve become myself and that I’m able to fully express who I am and what I do. People ask if I’m scared or if bad things have happened to me because I am Muslim but that isn’t the case and I really take that as a blessing because I don’t know what I’d do in those situations. Our main goal is to make it home though, right? So I need to focus on that and not everything else because my husband needs me and my kids want their mother. This discussion could be a whole other blog post. Updates. I apologize for any delayed email replies and hair/henna consultations as I handle those myself and I’m pretty backed up. I’ll be playing catch up for a little bit. I also owe you all the final winners of our 30 days of Ramadan Prizes. I’ll have that up and posted by tomorrow....
