“Forever Brides”

It’s hard for me to believe that Ahmad and I will be celebrating our second wedding anniversary in a little over a month- where has the time gone? Sometimes, a picture or a post from this blog will re-appear and send me down memory lane, and depending on how I’m feeling that day, I’ll either…

2016 Resolutions Revisited

As 2015 was coming to a close, I wrote down a list of resolutions that I hoped to fulfill in the upcoming year- one which seemed so bright and full of endless possibilities. But now that 2016 is a few weeks shy from its long-awaited ending, I thought it would be a good idea to…

A Year of Beyond Beirut

It’s February the second. Which means that I’ve completed the blogging challenge I set out to do myself. If you asked me when I first started out, I wouldn’t have been so sure that I was going to make it to today, having achieved my goal. But almost 400 posts and a fourth place ranking…

Custom Kitchen Delivery- Part 3

I realized I never really continued writing about the biggest home renovation project we went through. I started off by writing about how we came up with the design, taking into account some key elements, then I wrote about all the changes we had to meet to get there. But then, some bigger things got…

Patiently Waiting

I thought dealing with vendors would end with the wedding actually happening. As you may know, this was my least favorite part of the whole process, so I’m glad to have gotten over and done with all the meetings and phone calls and trying to sort everything out. Except it’s not actually over until you…

Some More Love in Berlin

There are several forms to express love, as anyone would tell you. And it seems that throughout our trip to Berlin, that manifested itself in so many different ways, including the little stretch of the Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery where people hang up their locks. Another type we found was in one…

All The Way At The Top

It was definitely a highlight for us to see one of Berlin’s iconic landmarks, the TV Tower (known as the Fersehturm) all the time from our hotel room. In fact, I’m quite a bit disappointed that I have now gone back to seeing a parking lot and the next building from my bedroom. The TV…

Love in Berlin

Paris has the¬†Pont des Arts,¬†famous for the locks that used to adorn its sides. Lovers from all over the world flock to lock in their love in one of the most romantic cities in the world. Berlin could be as furthest from a romantic city as possible, with its history more commonly associated with war…

The Most Perfect Wedding Day

Your florist may make your bouquet a lot bigger than you wanted it to be. The hairdresser may forget what you had done at the rehearsal and start pinning your hair exactly how you didn’t want it. He’ll also never let you hear the end of it that he had to re-do the style. Your…

Waiting

My life right now can be summarized in one word: waiting. And since I was never the most patient person, I don’t like it and I can’t enjoy the moment. To make matters worse, I discovered today at work that I don’t have any vacation days this whole month and I have around five intensive…
