Oh hi there blog! and readers! how much i have missed logging in more often and writing my heart out. I managed to get back to back bookings over the past few weekends for photoshoots in this last month which was super nice and surprising but also super hectic! Cause after the weekly drill of…

Living in Autumn Heaven

We are definitely heading towards winter in full swing. But you guys, these days we are living in Autumn heaven here in Melbourne. It doesn’t feel anything like Autumn, as its chillier than that, but it looks oh so gorgeous! i don’t think i have ever been in a more beautiful place in my life!…

On this Mother’s Day

To the mother who wakes up multiple times a night to check on her babies, to the mother who has to wake up before the sun comes out, to the mother who left her work to be with her children, to the mother who chooses to work and thinks of her kids every moment, to…

When dreams come true …

I never dreamed of an extravagant or a luxurious lifestyle. For me, it was always about a small family with lots of laughter filling our days and a bunch of snuggles filling our nights.  A happy home, roomy enough for the kids to run around, and small enough for it be cozy and warm. A…

Azaan turns 2 !!

Wow.. that was fast! My littlest one, already two years old and officially out of the baby zone. Just gonna type a quick, casual, letter post to you, AZ boy. Being always on the run, short on time but high on life these days as I am. Its still better to have something up rather…

On turning 30 …

I am 30 today. Life is wonderful. I have never regretted getting older and saying goodbye to a certain year of my life. But this time, it felt rather bittersweet. Cause this time I turned the big 30, and had to bid farewell to a decade of my twenties filled with unbelievable experiences and life…

Little Gardeners

These days, I am often found (whenever i can sneak a couple of minutes) perched on the steps of our wooden deck, soaking up the last of the summer sun, dreaming of growing a veggie garden of sorts, contemplating all the hindrances I face. Right now our backyard tells a story of untamed grass and…

We Walk into the Wild …

Some days we step away from all that is structured and organized, planned and curated, and find our way through winding, tangled, growing places. Breathing in the clear, cool air and blowing away the cobwebs. There is mystery and charm in exploring instinctively, without any harnesses. In succumbing to the wild and being utterly fascinated…

Beaching at the Brighton

I was craving for a trip to the ocean this weekend. To walk along the coast, feel the coarse sand between my toes, hear the waves roar and crash, watch the kids make sand castles and dip their toes (and head in Hamza’s case) in the water. Salt air was calling. So, on Saturday, after…

Feels like Home.

For the past few weeks, we were living right in the heart of the city in an apartment many levels up in the sky, with a beautiful view of some of the famous city landmarks and the maze of roads and city blocks. Each morning after husband went to work, I would put the boys…

Touchdown in Melbourne !

My quiet ways on the blog these days have nothing to do with the writer’s block. You know those moments that define and change your life, thats pretty much happening these days. I have flown across the globe, solo with the boys, and have landed in Melbourne. For good. Thats pretty big as far as…

It’s Zoo Time!

Some days, there are no words. Some days, there are just photos. Photos of two brothers, beaming with excitement and shining with anticipation. Gulping down a huge tub of popcorn like there was no tomorrow. Photos of a little boy laughing at the monkeys. Photos of many a sweet deer, feeding off his tiny chubby…
