Aslema and all things Tunisian

First time blogger, so be nice?

Ok so as human beings we tend to gravitate towards others. Now I used to be on scrapbooking forums, photography forums, Islamic forums etc. But I realised I fit into these "groups" individually, but as a whole why can't I be part of the "Italian-born-scrapbooker-married-to-a-Tunisian-convert-living-in-Montreal" group. Well you guessed it, there wasn't any on yahoo.groups that's for sure.

So here it is, I want to blog and also get to know others like me! Sure there are some sisters out there who

a. feel lonely because Eid in a non-Islamic country can be (especially if your husbands family is abroad)

b. has a crafty side, whether it be scrapbooking, photography, etc.

c. As a convert dealing with the "they brain-washed you" syndrome.

d. loves Tunisian culture or wherever your husbands from?

e. as a married woman (I'm 22) dealing with your old friends who just don't fit in with your new lifestyle (as fulfilling as it might be)

Not bad for a first post?

Beslema and may Allah bless you

P.S. I bet you're wondering about the Blog name? Well Harissa is a pepper paste that is very much Tunisian and well I love Mint (I love the color, the taste and I think it represents me, always refreshing, honest, and clean). Kinda symbolizes me and my husband.
