Big Move

Hi, there! As I mentioned on this post, we'll be moving next month to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia due to my husband's job. For a personal style blogger like me, this could be a nightmare. Just a little info about Saudi Arabia, other than women are not allowed to drive in Saudi, women also MUST wear a long Abaya. They wear the abaya over their normal clothes and as well as a veil over their hair when they leave the house. You can google it further if you're interested. Even though the Abaya is traditionally worn by Muslim women, women in Riyadh must wear this overgarment when in public, even if you're not Muslim, or else you're going to get "questioned" by the Mutawa (religious police). However, the more I read books, watched documentary videos, and talked to other expat families about living in Riyadh, my worries and anxiety have kind of eased a little.

Wearing an Abaya, eh? No worries! My husband is my biggest supporter and encourager in whatever goal I may have, especially on my blogging. Because I was worrying about our move to Saudi and wearing an Abaya, my husband bought me this photo studio set last Valentine's Day so we can take my photos inside the house (talk about thoughtful husband :)). My husband and I have no knowledge about photography what so ever, so right now just bear with us until we learn the set up. For now, I'm asking you ladies (and gents?) to wish us luck on our BIG move!

  2. Hi Amor, thanks for stopping by and left me a lovely comment on my blog, nice to meet you. I hear ya, my husband and I are moved all over too. I told him, no more move for me, cause our 4 year olds twin boys are going to school. I'm now staying longer in Atlanta. I wish you and your husband luck over there, its might be fun though. maybe good for the picture..BTW, you look great..

  7. Your husband is the greatest supporting you and your blogging. That's nice that he bought you a studio to take pictures, that's perfect and have fun when you move. I would be nervous too, but after a while you will get used to it. Also, I love your outfit especially that polka dot top.

  25. Good luck with the big move! It will be very different and scary there it sounds like! The photo studio is a nice idea so you can still wear what you want sometimes.
