Celebrating Eid

Hey you guys. So glad you guys enjoyed posts by the beautiful people I had guest post for Eid. I wanted to answer the same questions I had asked them but its been a bit busy in our house the past week or so. I thought I’d share some pictures from our Eid instead. This time we celebrated all three days because of the weekend that followed and it was lovely.

Here are some little glimpses into what it was like.

I did manage to put up some last minute decorations. Haven’t been feeling too creative lately because of lots going on, but wanted to put something up at least!

A beautiful dinner with friends on Eid day with yummy food, lots of stair climbing for Anya (her favorite kind of activity) and Eid gifts for all the kiddies thanks to this new tradition some of our friends have started (I love the idea).

A visit from an old friend who was in town. We were meeting after more than 10 years! It was nostalgic and lovely to say the least!
