Coffee with Ameena #16

If we were having coffee, I'd ask you how your night was and hope it was better than mine because that thing called "menstrual cramps" shortened my sleep at around 3:30am. At 3:30am, while the world was asleep, it all made sense to me why I was irritable and incredibly hungry and craving for the… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #16

Coffee with Ameena #9

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I believe there are friends for a reason and friends for a season, and then there are the ones who are here to stay through the thunder and lighting, the gravel walk and sandstorms, those are your ride or die. And they make living in… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #9
