just hours from forever

At 6pm today, my world changes its orbit.
And I'm ready for it.

A grand prize of a bottle of fennel sweets wrapped in not-so-ghagha goldish organza will be dispatched to the first person to spot 5g33k's initial in the henna pattern.

Congratulations, and welcome to the club :)

May Allah bless, guide and protect the 2 of you; and make all your days and nights of service to Him...u know, the potential for ibadah just increases so much when u marry - really amazing :)

we're nearly 5 months in now, and it truly is amazing to be as settled as we are. like, once you're past the initial stages of getting totally comfy with each other, and settling in to your new home and new's just incredible. a dream come true, every single day, alhamdullilah :)

keep your Creator at the centre of your life, and nurture that relationship by striving - together - in your deen. the benefits are not only for yourselves, but your future family too, this life and the next.

all the best to you :)

speedy: On the button.

r: Thank you:) I think I was a little over-eager to change it. Blame it on the gagas.

anonymous: Regardless of the melodramatique, thank you for the dua.

fatima: I loved the bowl! Was very pleased that you and Z could make it, despite the awful weather.

MJ: You know, I thought it would be awkward too, but slipping into this domesticity thing aint too bad. Thanks dude:)

ZK: Miss you roomie. Lovely duas. Ameen.

Blue Sunflower: Thank you, and all the best for your own upcomings.

dreamlife: Excellent advice and missives as always. Much appreciated:)

expensive mistakes: I was amazed at the woman who did the henna design for me. Straight out of her head on the palm. Was a bitch to sleep with though, woke in the morning to flakes of dried henna crumbing the bed and my pyjamas.

prixie: Thanks again to you and Su for everything! Really going to miss you when you jet off.

Sofi: Request noted:)

Queen L: You know us too well.

Priya: prixie priya? oh well, yep, that's still his day job.

shireen: Thank you. This is the waking dream:)

dionysus: For sure!
