History is such a fascinating thing and at times we take things for granted. Read the rest of this entry
I’m not the best person to take a a step back and Relax… not in my On-the-go personality…..
Everyone knows how I always have so much on my plate at one time. I’m Miss Busy Bee AND I deeply suffer from
FOMO…..yes Fear Of Missing Out
Even though I’ve substantially decreased so many aspects of my “previous life” with the Move to Canada.
Less friends, no family, no work/job, no business, NOTHING….absolutley NOTHING!
Well guess what? I somehow took a step back and decided to embrace it.
My forced upon me life Break…..
Maybe now I’ll take up Yoga and Meditation Loool!

There’s always something uplifting about having a Sunny Day.
You just have to smile.
No sunny day should ever be spent frowning, that’s heresy!!!
I have a big thing about sunglasses….it’s always a challenge to find the perfect stylish sun-glass that fits my ity bity face!!
For the first time since I became a Mom I can honestly say I have had a “Real” Mother’s Day…..
I mean sure I got the little cute things that the girls made at pre-school, or kindergarten or school….
An extra hug here or there…..
But not a real official celebration of me
I think the girls were always in some activity and the importance of celebrating was secondary…..
I am thankful that I do get my “me time” once in a while but today I would like to share My Mother’s day Wins of 2017
So here goes….
MY Mother’s Day List
♥ I got to sleep in until 9am (hubby took care of the girls)
♥ I got to take a nice long un-interuptted shower.
♥ My morning Tea was delivered to my room
♥ I got the most creative home-made card from Jennah featuring photos of hubby, Jennah & Zeenah with a Mom-trivia identifying me as “A Cooking Mom”
♥ Zeenah made a little pot for my jewlery with the cutest flowers and a thoughtful card highlighting how much she loves our morning hugs and cooking together
♥ I got to wear a DRESS & HEELS

Making life Memorable as a mother and a daughter!
After the rush of the week there’s always the weekend dilemma of what to do with the kids and how much is too much.
Now the most important thing in my view is always “less electronics” and I’m so happy that the weather now is so nice (even is it RAINS!) that we can begin to do things in the great outdoors.
I therefore logged on and began my search. I wanted to find what’s going on around Edmonton and it didn’t take long before I clicked to To Do Canada. I was so happy to find a great list of suggestions.
Want some inspiration for this weekend in Edmonton…I got you!
All about Making Life Memorable one weekend at a time!
Sometimes it’s about appreciating yourself….
I find so many time I’m just busy thinking of everyone around me and I forget that I have to treat myself too.
While we were at Southgate Center I realized hey what’s more special than buying a few treats for myself and call it my own Mother’s day gift for Myself.
I stocked up
on a few teas and a little bit more from what is now my favorite tea store….. DAVIDs Tea
I just can’t believe it took me that long to actually go in and buy some things from there. I think it was probably avoiding the inevitable of spending more than I need to but its ALL very much worth it!
I couldn’t wait to come home and make me a cup of tea.
Making Life Memorable one sip at a time!!!

Making life Memorable at West Edmonton Mall on Mother’s Day!
Everyone has a special place in their heart for their mother. Sure let’s admit it there’s always times we don’t seem to see eye-to-eye but we grow up and realize “Mother knows best”!
I really find myself understanding my mother a lot more now that I have children of my own. I find myself saying things and realizing I sound exactly like her and try to resist laughing when I see the reaction on my daughter’s face knowing EXACTLY what is going through her head ready to tell her “been there done that”
But at the end of the day we love them with all our hearts and know that we need to cherish them.
There’s no better way to celebrate our Moms with actually giving them a National Holiday called Mother’s Day…. Now being from the Middle east we celebrate Mother’s day on March 20. Now that I’m in North America this year I’ll be wishing my mom a Happy Mother’s day on May 14th from across the Atlantic…. A lot further than i’d like but that’s life, we have to make the best of it no matter where we are.
So Starting today until the day I’ll be posting Mother’s Day Theme posts. From little snippets for all those in Edmonton, Alberta on things around town as inspiration of what they can do for their mom’s or for themselves!!!
Making Life Memorable for all moms and daughters.
