Gearing up for Eid

Warning :: this post contains gratuitous use of tinsel and glitter. People with aversion to shiny things are advised to look away now.









Can you feel the babes' excitement? Does the blurry natures of their images give anything away? They have become just blips on my radar as they dance and run and zip and zoom from one end of the house to the other, counting down the days to Eid.

Decorating the house for the last ten days of Ramadan I listen to their chatter - what they love about Eid, what is their favourite part, how they CAN'T. WAIT. and I feel priveleged to be able to be the one to bring so much magic and excitement into their lives.

I hope they do the same for their babes too.

I am taking a break from this space for the next few days to celebrate with my family. Hopefully back in this space on Friday for {this moment}, or next week with a bit of news on a new project I have been working on - hopefully!!

Have a peaceful week!

  1. I have a friend who's a police officer in Manchester. He says Eid is his all time favourite celebration to be out covering. The atmosphere is so good!
    Could do with tinsel and lights here, it's dull and gloomy and I'm decluttering...

  2. Yeah it's a mellow time. If you want a complete stranger to hug you just wish him eid mubarak on eid day. :)

  3. I am not familiar with this looks a bit Christmassy from here:) Enjoy your Holiday..and the smiles of your little guys!

  4. Eid is the celebration after our month long fast of Ramadan. It probably looks christmassy because I bring my pre-islamic notions of celebrating with me :)

  5. love the glitter. may allah brighten your heart as well this eid and always!;)

  6. MashAllah! May you have a blessed week full of celebration and family time. Your little guys do look very excited. Ramadhan Mubarak!

  7. Khair mubarak! Wishing you and yours a wonderful eid too. Oh boy excitement levels are getting dangerous around here... just got them to bed!

  8. I hope you have a wondrous time with the boys and your family. Hugs Lisa L.

  9. A happy Eid to you and yours! ;
