It is the mating season here in Amman. Everybody is getting hitched. Yesterday we were invited to Dima and Fadi’s wedding and it was so much fun. The church wedding was held at a new church (at least new to me) behind the Holiday Inn hotel.
The church, commonly referred to as Imseeh church, is named for a Jordanian Christian jeweler who donated money to build it. Interesting!
The flower decorations in the church were very nice and so was the music. Later that night, we headed to the reception held at the Intercontinental Hotel and man we had a blast!
I danced so much that my feet are still swollen and hurting at this very moment. It’s okay, I guess that’s the price I have to pay for having so much fun. It was very nice to dance the night away alongside many of my friends, most of whom I haven’t seen for almost a year. And man, Arabic music is the best choice for any wedding! Jeff did his share of dancing too, but also lightly documented the event with digital and film pictures that really came out nice. Oh Jordan, I missed you so!
Below are two more pictures 🙂 🙂
That new photo is top-notch and I like the banner, too. The first 2/3 entries I’d not read, about your vacation and wedding and such, but they’re fun to read. I know you’re having a great time! 2TheMuse9/Dad T
The site looks great! I love the banner at the top. Good work all around!
Hello, Natasha and Jeff!
Your new website is terrific, exhibiting talent from both of you creative people! Well done. I went back thru June and found the possibility of BBC doing an Arabic newscast quite interesting — for you guys. Have you followed up on that, or are you interested at all? It may be too far off in the future, or non-existent, BUT it just might get organised and funded “rapido”, in which case you might find something interesting and available. ?
I wish you a most HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY WISH for a wonderful 28th year, and many more super years to come, Natasha!!!
Re: Grisham — I recently bought the DVD “The Runaway Jury” and think it was very well done and fast-moving. I’ve read most of G’s books,enjoying his remarks about places I know or grew up with in the South, as well as his stories. A few begin slowly but usually gain ground and become interesting. Others are definitely, as you say, page-turners.
Fannie Flagg is an entertaining, talented and touching, Southern writer, (probably more to those of us raised in that area and era), and I like a newer author (in a nice interview with Grisham and another Mississippi male author that I saw many months back)who handles words well and does National Park-based stories of mystery – Nevada Barr. (She was a Park Ranger in MS for a time and has really expanded her horizons and the depth of her work has grown exponentially-sp?, in my opinion.)
My husband wants some lunch and it is near my Spanish churchtime, so I will close my already too-lengthy reply!
I really like your site’s form and how you’ve included your comments/writings with news bits, etc. Layout and all.
