So, adored this honest post about what is really going on in life. Inspiring moi to do a quick authentic update as well. Since I have been absent from the on-line world and all. Time Flies...
Ahmed has been getting ready for his adventure back home to Egypt. Wow, what a process that is to be gone for over a month. Getting his US passport, making sure all the bills are in order while he is gone. Getting him ready for that long flight. Buying oodles of gifts for his family and friends. A lot of Shampoo and make-up goodies. American products are so expensive over there. Last few days were a whirlwind of watch buying (He decided on the fabulous new classic Timex Weekender Collection. Inspired by there successful collab with J.Crew). Emotions high. Bittersweet good-byes at the airport.
Trying to memorize everything about him while he's gone. Ugh dramatic I know. But, in the over 4 years we have been together. We have spent little time away from each other and over a month will be brutal. But, I understand how important family is and he has been away from his own for way too long. He has so many nieces and nephews to meet. Long conversations with his brothers and sister to have in person. Catching up with precious time with his Dad!!! So, I put aside my missing him as best as I can and know this is the best place for him to be right now.
So, now it is just me. I am a only child so I have learned over the years to entertain myself. I will be fine in between the many twinges of missing him. My friends and our friends have been wonderful. Keeping me busy. I am trying to do FB and Blog Catch up:) Please bear with me and know you will be hearing from me soon dear blog friends.
