el ain sokhna and the 6th of July ;)

IMG_20160704_183009

i am thankful to have found a husband like A. i got lucky. i always tell friends how i feel he’s a lot nicer than what i am {if that’s even possible ;)} he is my best friend, career advisor, partner and the most fun roommate. but what i love about him the most is knowing that seeing me happy, makes him the happiest. i hope and pray that it always stays this way.

he doesn’t care about birthdays the way i do. the childish girl in me loves celebrating birthdays as if i was still 18! and that’s something i plan to over come. soon. he doesn’t get it. at all. but he will always comply. because he knows how important it is to me.

this birthday we spent in el ain sokhna in egypt. it’s merely a 1.5 hour drive from cairo and i’d recommend anyone who visits cairo to make sure they drive down to el sokhna. we stayed at ashraf’s vacation home right by the beach. we spent the entire day swimming in the red sea. literally. we reached the beach at 8 am and swam and drank and ate till the sun came down. then we came home had a chicken and quail barbecue {i tried quail!}  and went back to the beach until midnight.

to bring in my birthday ashraf has invited his neighbors and friends for dinner and drinks and they got me an ice cream cake and sang happy birthday in Egyptian. i was so touched and got teary. i did not expect the cake. nor did i expect people who i had met merely 5 days ago to go out of their way for me.
