leaf sisters


The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I was finishing up an assignment when Z called out to me gleefully. She had opened the door window and was gazing up to the sky as dozens of leaves started falling from the sky. I grabbed my camera and captured the falling-from-the-sky-leaves.

“Not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry but is written in a clear record.” – (Quran  6:59).


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!
