C’est Moi

Blogging as therapy and to chronologically categorize my life and thoughts.

Recent Washington, D.C transplant from Dallas, T.X



These are my two dogs Zoee and Leelu, both were rescued from our local dog shelter. Leelu from the SPCA in dallas and Zoee from the Daphne Animal shelter when we lived in Alabama.


This was taken on one of the happiest days of my life. My husband Mazen is about to be a third year neurology resident. He matched to Washington, DC so we made the move so he could complete his training.  He was born in Dallas and is a true texan boy, he loves the weather to be over 90 degrees ,practices neurology and is a trekkie fan, as am I. We both believe in supporting local business and in sustainable food. We both love to eat and explore.

Besides trying to get my shit life together I am passionate about sustainable food, typography, cooking- I am a pescatarian , a good cup of coffee or tea, hiking, reading and engaging in some form of physical activity. Also believe in being part of your community and giving back to your neighbors. Working in Chevy Chase and seeing my neighbors at work-either as a part time nanny or working at the local cafe really gives me a sense of community and pride.
