  • Here’s a few fun facts about me for anyone who is new. 
1️⃣I am from Damascus, Syria but I was born & raised in California. However I spent 10+ years living in Chicago. 
2️⃣My husband @usimgesq & I have been married for almost 10yrs! We met through our mutual friends through our local mosque 🕌 in Chicago.
3️⃣ We have 3 kids— 👦🏻👦🏼👧🏻
2 boys & a girl, aged 7, 6 and my girl just turned 3 this weekend! 
4️⃣ I love any & all forms of art. 🎨 I even went on to minor in art history in college. 
5️⃣I graduated high school at the age of 16 by skipping the 4th grade & finishing high school in 3 yrs. 
6️⃣I went to undergrad at University California in Santa Barbara & majored in biology. 
7️⃣I paid for all my own schooling. Fortunately, I was able to keep my GPA high enough & was granted a full on paid regents scholarship for my entire college education. 
8️⃣During my time in college I solidified my decision to pursue medicine after volunteering w an organization called Adventures in Caring. I would dress up as ‘Raggedy Ann’ 🎈 visiting terminally ill patients, trying to offer them a bit of joy during an otherwise dark time. In many ways it was this experience that really fueled my desire to pursue medicine.
9️⃣I went to med school in Chicago at Rush University, (where I also would end up doing my residency). When I first started med school I was set on becoming a pediatrician. 👶🏻 However, when I rotated in ophthalmology 👁 I was enamored with everything about it. That artistically inclined, detail-oriented side of me was given a completely new channel of expression. 
1️⃣0️⃣During med school I was active on student council & I founded the Ophthalmology interest group 👁 
1️⃣1️⃣I currently work as a comprehensive ophthalmologist at a large HMO in Southern California. 👩‍⚕️ The most common surgeries I perform are cataract, pterygium & eyelid surgery. I also treat a variety of disease, mostly retinal/glaucoma w injections 💉& lasers.  I absolutely love my job! 
1️⃣2️⃣Lastly, because it just wouldn’t be a complete list about me without the mention of my intense love of all things chocolate. 🍫
Anything else you’d like to know? Ask away.
Ps. I ❤️ you for reading up to here

  • Today’s yoga workout was all about balance! I kept falling off balance and it struck me how much that mirrored life. Sometimes I am great at finding balance in life and do awesome at balancing work, volunteering, eating healthy, working out, and having fun. And sometimes things get a little too work focused for fun focused or exercise focused. But eventually the balance returns. There are so many waves 🌊 in life and I’m just here to enjoy the ride and make the most of every day! Right now the balance is definitely off center and has shifted to the fun of the holiday + off-season awesomeness!

  • We just wrapped up the install of this oak habitat backyard. Previously this backyard was blocked off by a huge laurel hedge that transected the back yard and made the yard feel small and cramped. So to open up the yard, we removed the unkempt hedge showcasing the large oak tree below. We added steps down to the lower level and drought tolerant plantings will fill in and compliment the native habitat.

  • Alcatraz Island🏝🏝🏝
I was surprised to see how close it was to the shore. I believe that the 1962 Alcatraz escape attempt was a success for Frank, John and Clarence. Unless they got eaten by sharks 🤔🤔🤔

  • When Bob Bryant opened his 900 square-foot jewelry store in 1965, he probably couldn’t imagine that almost fifty-five years later, the business would still be there serving some of its original customers, along with their children and even grandchildren. But @bryantandsonsjewelers remains in the same location in State Street’s historic El Paseo shopping area,
with son Mike leading it since 1981.

A lot has changed in all that time. State Street has grown up, and the original tiny studio-front store has been transformed into a beautiful 4500 square-foot multi-level jewelry salon. But the defining hallmarks of Bryant & Sons, service and selection, remain untainted by time. The service is as personalized as ever with certified gemologists and master goldsmiths on staff, and their in-house workshop is invaluable for anyone considering a custom-crafted piece. 
The selection of distinguished jewelry and timepieces features the world’s finest lines, including @cartier, @patekphilippe, @breitling @breitling_usa, @baumeetmercier, @michaelm, @scottkayusa, @roberto_coin, @official_mikimoto, as well as @baccarat crystal.

  • Whether you are working from home, the local coffeeshop, or studying at school we all understand the focus required to accomplish difficult tasks. Prior to CBD many users found difficulty focusing or tapping into their creativity to solve tasks before them. Complex tasks shouldn’t create anxiety, but rather challenge how we create new solutions.
