The daily chronicle of my family as we embark on our quest to relocate from New York to Cairo... the impending journey to get there and the daily lives of myself, my husband and our four children... and other random thoughts while living in Cairo!

Looking to make contact with other Muslimahs who are like myself with small children living or will be living in a foreign country.

I invite you to share the experience with us as we try to make this happen!

Desktop Backgrounds

I paid a visit to the blog of our fellow sister Mona on this very still, quiet Christmas day (it's like the world is standing still here) and she posted her favorite desktop backgrounds... so as a tag, I'm posting my favs here:

The ever beautiful, awe-inspiring Taj Mahal... InshaAllah on my list to visit after I complete Hajj














Some women in the marketplace















The peaceful escape of Maldives














A few shots from Anne Geddes various collections.....


















A beautiful black sand beach- ahh, it's calling me.....













What are some of your favorite backgrounds?

Island Girl- Wa 'Alaikum Assalaam! Thanks for following my blog! Maldives, MashaAllah, looks soooo beautiful- I planned a trip there over 10 years ago with a very good friend- they couldn't travel last minute! There will always be a place I wish I had seen... I hear LOTS of Muslims there
