aSalaam uAlaikum and Good Evening My Stylish Sisters!
Tonight I have some very exciting new to share with you ladies, so sit down, kick off those heels and pour yourself a cup of tea.
I know I promised that I wouldn't disappear on you guys again and I haven't, I SWEAR, but you have to understand how excited I am right now about what I'm about to announce to you ladies....
I found a friend!!
Yes, I know that may sound a bit....hmmmm pitiful? But the fact of the matter is, being a stay at home mom with a young child who is not yet in school doesn't provide one with too many outlets to meet sisters. I try to attend the masjid as often as possible, but unfortunately even there I haven't found any sisters I "clicked" with.
Alhamdulillah I have a few close friends online who I know I can count on anytime I need to vent or am looking for advice or sympathy, but unfortunately they are just that: online. I have a couple of close friends who I see sporatically, but lately those visits have been few and far apart because we live far away from eachother and are both caught up with our own lives. This blog has been the closest I've gotten in a long time to actually sitting down with other sisters, sharing a cup of tea or coffee, and gabbing about whatever comes to mind.
So, I'm sure you can imagine how excited I am that I finally have found a sister to sit with. To drink tea with, eat wayyy too many sweets with, go for frozen yogurt with, take my daughter to the mall with.
And mash'Allah she is a hijabi, very stylish, very smart, very pretty mash'Allah, and wears the same shoe size!!! Hellooooo the girl has almost as many shoes as I do!! (or maybe more, she still has suitcases to unpack)
Anyways, I actually am working on a nice blog post that is semi-inspired by her and her current fashion needs (suspensful, huh?) and am hoping to insh'Allah have it posted in the next couple days...believe me it will be worth the wait! (the suspense is killing you isn't it?)
It just goes to show that alhamdulillah, Allah swt knows when things are best for us. Because honestly if I had met her even one year ago, I wouldn't have been ready to be a good friend back to her....which means I would have screwed up a good thing, and probably ended up hurting one of the sweetest girls I've ever met.
So....Fashionable Followers....meet L........L....meet my beautiful, supportive, fantastic, Fashionable Followers :)
More tea, anyone??
Ma'Salaama and Thanks for being good friends...
