Are you a summer or a fall person?? I am SO a fall person. I freaking love that this first day of fall ACTUALLY FEELS LIKE ONE!! My studio has quickly become my favorite place inside to be. It’s all windows, so this outdoorsy-girl can still feel like I’m outside, even when the weather sucks. Which today, it does not. But as I’m trying to play catch up on editing, I can still have all those glorious windows open and feel the breeze and hear the leaves blowing.
We maaaaaay have hauled up all our Halloween decorations today and started hanging up the sound-activated falling spiders. (Also don’t be alarmed if my fridge screams at you when you open it. Annnnnd, don’t mind the spooky-music-singing toilet paper roll.) Buh bye summer! Catch ya next year!
💜 World Alzheimer's Day is the international campaign by Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) every September to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and Dementia. Has your family been affected by this? Our Pop-pop has dementia but has been able to manage fairly well with early diagnosis and medication. I’m honored to be participating in this loop to raise awareness!
Today I have teamed up with some photographer friends to #lightitpurple4alz
! Follow along the loop and post your own purple shots to help raise awareness! #ENDALZ

How refreshing it must be to have seaweed in your 8-month old fingers rather than plastic... While not an everyday occurrence for us, I look back at this moment compared to what my son plays with on a day to day basis now and wonder how I can bring this into his life more. How do you bring nature into the house? #momentexchange

There was a sock hop at school today and our sweet Finn was pumped! He told us he danced with his girlfriend Harper lol. I said “Did you hold hands to dance?” “No, I put my hands on her hips and she put her hands on my shoulders.” 😂😂😂😂 oh we were laughing haha. ❤️

Ok so we’ve been checking out lots of orchards and farms the past 2 weeks. I need all your fav apple recipes. I just made the most amazing smoothie the kids and my hubby devoured. Apples, ripe bananas, kale, almond milk and cinnamon 😋 #hello_henley
THE GROUND IS LAVA
A game I never get tired of playing when it’s with 2 out of 3 of my main inspirations.

All the holiday shots needed tonight, it’s been a tricky week and I’ve got some serious holiday escapism urges...
Have you booked any 2019 getaways? And if so where are you off to?
Son zamanlarda yaptigimiz en guzel sey bugun ki ormanda yaptigimiz yuruyustu💚Hele ki yaninizda 2 yasindaki bi bidik varsa herseyi sil bastan yeniden kesfediyosunuz!🌿🐛🦎
This kid has grown so much since she turned 4. I’m blown away by the way her mind works, how thoughtful she is, and her unique sense of humor. Parenthood is such a gift.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t think that there’s a more comforting place for a baby or toddler on the spectrum than the sling. Two years old and still taking sling naps ✨thanks @wildbird #mywildbirdcotinga
I am definetly going to miss this view as of next week!😭😭😭
Goodnight everyone! And good morning to my friend from the other part of the world!
‘Happiness is like a butterfly...’ Happy friday!Bedankt voor deze prachtige schmink en gezellige middag @plukandpaloma

I'm over a month late on posting her birthday, but my little girl is
TWO YEARS OLD.
We had a blast at her party and are blessed with so many amazing people to love - - also check out the awesome cupcakes my sister made for her!! 🌵💕
Why are you on Instagram? I often ask myself this question and just can't seem to find a good enough answer.
I started out of boredom and loneliness when I suddenly found myself staying home with my first. Somehow the little mom community on here helped me be a part something.
When I was no longer lonely, I convinced myself that I will start a blog but that quickly failed as I just couldn't keep up.
And now I just have this new obsession with taking pictures of my family outside and seeing how others capture and edit their subject.
I am still not sure what I want out of this platform or even if I want it. But since I am here and you are a part of my journey (thank you by the way) here are a few things about me:
1. I am a pretty private person and thus find it extremely difficult to ask people personal questions.
2. I have a million and one hobbies. I just love learning new skills. Currently it is photography and videography. But I have also dipped my hands in and fell in love with decorating cakes, cooking, baking, sewing, scrap booking, journaling, coding, photoshop, and graphic design.
3. I have this deep love for exploring national parks and hiking mountains. .
4. I have no sense of style and dread shopping - online and in store.
5. I have a Masters of Teaching and teaching continues to be my passion even though I am not teaching right now.
6. I am from Afghanistan and married to a Bengali.
7. I love feeding people.
8. The hardest thing I have ever done in my life is to raise my two little ones.
Today actually feels like the first day of fall! And it feels like love! Ask anybody that knows me well enough and they’ll tell you I’m a summer lover and not your average pumpkin spice latte craving white girl. In fact I’ve never even had a pumpkin spice latte because I’m not a fan of pumpkin anything. Fall has never been my thing. But I’m so over the equator temps and humidity at the lake this year. And maybe it’s because I’m carrying around a lot of extra weight in a placenta and baby all of a sudden. But this weather of ours today. It’s giving us all the feels over here😍
