We got back from our road trip a month ago, and its taken me this long to get back into the game!
(more pics. soon)
Our road trip van.


One of the main reasons it's taken so long is that Ramadan started a few weeks after we returned home. It's like preparing for Thanksgiving and Christmas all rolled into one month. 
Ramadan is an amazing month for Muslims, it's a time of renewal and spiritual reflection.
 Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. We abstain from any drinking or eating during daylight hours an added emphasis is put on not gossiping, lying, and any sinful acts in general. 
Purity of thought during this month is paramount.
For one month out of the whole year we try as much as possible to dedicate to the worship of God and hope that in return we come out of this month with a renewed spirit and a purified heart.

  1. I am glad you are ok! You were gone for so long that I thought something happened to you. What a great photo infront of Mt. Rushmore. Can't wait to see more photos. Welcome back!
