Umrah Trip

As most of you know, we were blessed to go to Umrah last week.
It truly was a wonderful experience.
We spent a few days in Madinah before heading out to Mecca.

Inspiration was all around, in the places we visited and the people
we met.
Definitely a memorable trip.

Gorgeous umbrella-like awnings provide shade
to those praying outdoors.

Time for some shopping.

The Kabah.
Breathtaking.
I miss it!

Prayer

Even with the Ramadan rush starting to come in, we were still able to get up close a number of times!

Beautiful.

Impecable detail.
