Home +1


It is a strange thing to come home. While yet on the journey, you cannot at all realize how strange it will be.

– Selma Lagerlof.

It is a strange thing to leave the house pregnant and return with a baby in hands! I notice parts of my pregnancy scattered around the house, discarded memories, like fallen leaves.

Here the calendar was left on Baby A’s birth date. Once in labor, the house is forgotten.

This book was by my laptop- I was consulting it just a little before my water broke!

Zipping up my hospital bag. Homeward bound!

Grateful for family and their help, and so grateful to God for a healthy pregnancy, labor, and baby! (also grateful for an iPhone with access to photos and blogging! I don’t have time to sit and edit my other photos. It’s nice to be able to take quick phone snaps!)

” He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation, within three darknesses. That is God, your Lord; to Him belongs dominion. There is no deity except Him, so how are you averted?” Quran 39:6


About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012), an an infant (August 2017) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
