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!

I loved reading this post and learning about you.. How cute is that little baby???!!

Empress Anisa said...

Inspired- yeah, it's funny how you can learn alot about a person thru all these tags we get... put the pieces of the puzzle together!

Yes, this little guy looks EXACTLY like my youngest son- cheeks and all!

Hajar said...

Aww~ you don't say? How much of this cuteness can you take? The cheeks!

Mint choco chip ice-cream sounds really good ... :)

Empress Anisa said...

Hajar- almost too adorable for words... that's why my little guy is always cryin- somebody pulling at his cheeks!

I love ice cream but mint chocolate chip with drizzles of warm hot fudge and some chopped nuts... simply bliss
