{love is the strength of our commitments}

“Instead, I hold that day deep within myself, as a reminder that love is the sum of our choices, the strength of our commitments, the ties that bind us together"”

“But maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way.”

from the book love the one you’re with by emily giffin

‘normal day’


just read this quote on ali’s blog, and it just spoke to me. i think i need to remember this more often.

Mary Jean Iron : Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.

ps: wanted to share this eid greeting i made and me and my husband sent out for eid this year:)

eid mubarak-e

Collage I made today!

So today's looking like one of those creative days and that makes me happy, REALLY happy:)! and who would have known, the sun's managed to find its way through the clouds too and the day is turning out better than it started.

Here's my work from today. The quote's from Judith McNaught's 'Almost Heaven'. I love all her books. They're such sappy romantic reads, the kinds that manage to give you butterflies(lol). If you're into chick literature and haven't read her books, I'd recommend them any day! was

Last night I made my husband watch this movie with me which I'd brought from blockbuster, 'Blueberry nights'. wow it was so boring, nothing happened in the whole movie. so well I sat down with all these magazines around me and I just tore and cut pages like crazy. so much fun. so now I have lots of inspiration for new collages. these were two I made today, again for the 'she' series.
