It's difficult to feel festive on Eid when the society you live in is not celebrating. It is also the first Eid my husband and I are not in big family gatherings. A good friend of mine once said: Sometimes you have to create yourself the things that are missing (❤ to the inspiring Kübra Gümüşay). So we created our own big "family" gathering. We invited 26 friends for a Eid-Dinner-Party, we cooked for them (challenge accepted 💪), dressed up, decorated the house and prepared some games. It was a lovely evening. Connecting people and making them feel welcome makes me deeply happy. And I started collecting our Eid decorations (inspired by my sister ❤) for the next Eids to come, inshallah. So that we make them as festive as we can. Eid Mubarak!
