Personal Video: My Marriage + Interfaith Marriage in Islam

Hey guys! I recently posted a video in response to a regular stream of questions I get from my readers. I don’t know why it took me so long to post this, I think something inside me was scared to say anything that would upset people since – spoiler alert: my views aren’t the majority Muslim opinion. But part of my New Years resolution is to be bold – and I was feeling a little extra fierce so I just did it. I realize that what I said wasn’t anything profound, but as a result I got so many emails and DM’s from girls sharing their own experiences and thanking me for doing this.  That incredible response is just making me want to do more.  So here’s my idea – let’s all keep encouraging each other to be bold, challenging old notions that don’t work for us, and support each other through difficulties we are bound to face because: life.

Watch the video to learn something I’ve never shared about myself yet on social media, and my thoughts on whether or not its ok for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim guy.

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
