Maa ka Ghar

How difficult is it to leave your home and move to your new home where hubby will be? I didnt know it would be this touchy. Packing stuff, winding up the room, preparing to shift to the new home is a weird feeling. From teary moments to sparkly eyes. Its a mixed feeling and its leaving me kinda sleepless. When i say Maa ka ghar, i surely mean it because Ammi is the only one who is feeling weird too with me packing stuff and telling her that i’ll take ‘these’ boxes later. With random outbursts of love and hugs i have a knot in the tummy. Guys will never know how this feels. With 15 days to go for the great shift, I’m equally excited too. Allah mian, Thankyou.




So im getting into the grooove of becoming a bride inshallah 🙂

Dubai trip happened! Ending the year exactly how i started was fun. It was different yet the same. I had a different shopping list, i shopped on a budget. IKEA shopping list revolved around household stuff. Well, life is changing for good and im totally looking forward to it. Allah mian, youve been so mehrbaan that i cannot even begin to think what i would do if you werent there to guide me.

Hubby-to-be and I are super excited to sign off our lives to one another*inshallah* with friends and family around to help, support, guide and LOVE is a super blessed feeling. Missing Nani’s presence a lot. But i know she’s shining like a star in the skies where my friend chand mian resides. 

Let the fun begin!!!

So december started, the bridey mode is still far away from how everyone would want it to be! A list of chores to be covered by the hour, wrapping up projects, semester ending at work. Life is a BIG chaos right about now. There are moments where i fight with sleep so i could finish work off. Looking forward to travel plans….much needed.
December, you seem good. please keep it rolling!

countdown begins :)

26th August 2012

Its almost a month since I lost my friend, confidant and the frosting of my life. Havent had the courage to write down my feelings, its almost like i’ll come back here and go through them and collapse. She left us peacefully. She remembered calling out to me before she passed away. She asked why I hadnt come to see her. By the time I reached to give her one last comforting hug and a special kiss on her cheek, she left knowing I wouldnt be able to see her breath her last. I shut her eyes for her, kissed her forehead for the last time. Her soft cold skin…sigh.

My Nani, my confidant, the frosting of my life is now at peace and so am I.
You shall live in my heart forever. RIP Nani ♥

ps. Keep those special duas rolling. I’ll need them forever.

Rozay Wali Eid 2012

This year Ramzan just ran full speed. Seems like just yesterday that taraweeh started and the first sehri happened. Alhamdolillah, ramzan gone by, availed in the best possible way i could.

I made lots of prayers this ramzan, availed all the big nights*allah shukr*. Of upcoming new beginnings in life, i was bugged a lot this ramzan with ‘last ramzan at home, next year with hubby?’. It was a mix of feelings, totally looking forward to the new change in life, while i felt ammi’s voice go shaky. A random burst of emotions from the parents collectively, a t-shirt project with saad for independence day and crazy wakeup calls. This ramzan has been a big learning experience. A friends dad passed away on Jumat-ul-Widah, the last precious friday of the holy month. He was lucky enough to be buried in the holy land aka Makkah. It shook me. Ive been hearing of his health going down. May allah mian give the family sabr. Ameen.

A skype date with ada and family is a total must on Eid. With manoo and mehru jumping around in Eid attire with mehendi stories to share. Sooo much fun 🙂

The most happiest FAQ this ramzan was,’EIDI aaiygi is saal?*wink wink*’. hahahaaa… yes, the other set of parents, the inlaws bought my clothes for eid with chooriyaan and shoes. Alhamdolillah such a good feeling. Eid was different this time. Amidst running around meeting relatives, hubby-to-be came over to meet us while we went to meet the inlaws too. The bestest newest feeling, receiving Eidi from MIL and Hubby-to-be 🙂

With everyones blessings, looking forward to the big change in life 🙂
Allah mian Thankyouu, im loving this plan of yours.

Missed the rooftop the most, caught a glimpse of chand mian on Eid day 2. sigh. Good times those were. *throws confetti* just because missing good times is celebratory enough 🙂
