Happy First Day of Spring!


“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…

“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”

―Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden  

I love the book above!

I also love the camellia’s Nana’s holding below ~ this was taken last spring. It looks like she’s offering you something yummy to eat. Whenever I’m around my grandmother Nana, I notice nature even more. Here’s a Nana-Naturey-post from last year that always brings back fond memories whenever I see those images.

“What a strange thing!

to be alive

beneath cherry blossoms.” ― Kobayashi Issa, Poems


So I’ll be taking some new images of  blossoms soon I’m sure, but in the mean time I’m enjoying the sunshine as much as I can before it goes away. Atlanta weather is very moody and I never know what to expect.

Happy First Day of Spring!

“And you see the earth barren, but when We send down upon it rain, it quivers and swells and grows [something] of every beautiful kind”
(Quran 22:5).


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!
