Where is my village? *Mama rants*

Grab your tea or coffee and get ready for a full-on Mama rant! Some days its so hard to find joy in this everyday mundane life. Some days running away from it all seems so tempting! You know those days when I still sometimes have to clean poop from the toilet floor due to a…

Shaking hands with reality.

I mostly try to come to this space for positivity, sharing happy thoughts, constructive lifestyle stuff. But there is always another side to the things too. I dont believe in hiding the negative parts but i understand that joy sparks more joy, happiness begets happiness, and there have been countless times when i have been…

This Season of Motherhood.

This season of life. This season of motherhood. This season of being forever-on-the-go. This season of getting sloppy toddler kisses all over the face, all day long. This season of on-the-loop school pickups, dropoffs, packing lunches and washing uniforms. This season of getting rainbow 🌈 love hearts 💕 from a 5 year old everyday. This…

The busy mother

Being a mother is a tough gig. But being a mother in a foreign land is impossibly hard at times. You are not just responsible for your kids, but every single aspect of ‘living ‘imaginable has to be done manually by you. Scrub the toilet, wash the car, fix the broken light, make lunches n…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday readers ! On Fridays, i like to wind down at home after a buzzing week of activities. And today I am so thankful that I havent got much going on, cause after a very busy and hectic past 5 or 6 weeks, i am just craving a major lazy time at home with…

Rushing against time.

Que sera, sera Whatever will be, will be The future’s not ours to see Que sera, sera What will be, will be These days are passing by in a blur, a frenzy of activities, one after another. I can’t believe its Thursday already, officially almost end of the week. We have made our schedules far…

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…

What to expect with Baby no.2

The other day I got a stressed out message from a friend who just had her second baby a few weeks ago and was feeling all the chaos that comes with it and having a hard time to see any light at the end. You know the time when you are emotionally and physically worn…

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…

Riyadh’s Diplomatic Quarters

Yesterday I stumbled upon these photos from summer. From back in July, actually! And realized that I had never shared these before on the blog. We had just moved to Riyadh and between setting up the apartment, we would sneak out to explore new places every weekend. One such weekend, we went to Diplomatic Quarters,…

I have got my house chores sorted, haha. As you can see in this little video that I compiled from a few random clips of my boys cleaning and scrubbing the house. Please no one call the child protection services on me, they love to do it on their own hehe. Keeps them busy and…
