Thankful 2017

As the year comes to an end, I can make countless complaints of everything that happened this year, or give endless praises to the One who helped me wake up and end each day. I choose the later.

Below are some of the posts from January-December 2017 that I want to share.


This year, I literally saw how God provided for our DAILY needs.  He made way for other people to bless us our particular needs. I knew it was God’s move because it was so specific. I couldn’t help but smile at every provision he has showered us this year. I still stand amazed. Wondering at his greatness.

GUEST POST: How Experiential Travel Has Changed My Life by Emma Lawson


I can’t believe didn’t have a post. =) That’s because I was on vacation. I decided not to blog because the internet speed was just too slow and I wanted to just enjoy the whole vacation.


Have you heard of Udemy? It’s where you can find online courses to help you enhance your skills.


If you are starting to earn online, here’s a reason why you should consider having a Facebook Page. I also started posting parts of the book I’m working on, here’s a preview: The Heart of a Teacher

Visited Sushi Centro, Jeddah. I’ve been baking most of the time last October. Here’s a post abou Baking My Patience and Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies (with Oats)


I attended the FOODEX Saudi exhibit. I would love to do it again next time. =)


I hosted my first GIVEAWAY. =) I visited the new Jeddah Waterfront (Corniche) , learned something new while looking at the Arabian Lanterns in Al Shallal, Jeddah, and recently shared the chapter Dear Girl who keeps on entertaining boys, from the book I’m currently finishing.

Plus, thank YOU for reading. =) This site was initially created as my space for creativity. It has somehow evolved over the years and it has also been a source of income for me. So, thank you for reading. =) You can read my ABOUT page to know more about this site.
