My friend Aru gave me a big chunk of her precious Eid day. And she brought new clothes for my kids. It was a crazy evening. . friends from Bemidji in the living room, Paul and Karin in the guest room, friends from town with little bags of warm red meat . . cakes and mishti all over the table .. and Aru following me around the house. Then I ran out of gas. It was a late dinner and a late happy night.

Maia’s first selwar chemise. She loved it, and she spent alot of time getting her urna just so.
