littlelifeofmine On my wedding day, #gardenia scented candles were lit at the head table. Any time I smell the scent, I'm instantly taken back to that memorable day.
I was feeling nostalgic, so I ordered this gardenia candle from @zakiyahcandles. I was blown away by the strength of the scent. I could smell it in the WHOLE house.

Thank you JuaShaunna for creating such quality handmade products. Customer for life.

littlelifeofmine Huge crowd of people in #FremontCA, aka #LittleKabul, raising awareness and demanding justice for #Fakhunda. May she rest in peace and may justice be served. #solidarity 1d

littlelifeofmine I had some inquires about the box I displayed my #99NamesOfAllah card set from @creativemotivations. It was from Morocco, but I found the perfect local alternative!
These are available from @homegoods! They have little dividers that can be shimmied out with a little pressure.
Seriously in love with this set. Makes a great gift (hostess, Eid, just because).

littlelifeofmine Sleepless nights, runny noses, meal time struggles, crayon on the walls, crumbs in the car, sibling squabbles, none of it is in vain. Legos are not the only thing beneath our feet, if you know what I mean

My latest article,"Finding Beauty in the Struggle of Early Motherhood", is now up on The Muslim Observer. {link temporarily in profile}

littlelifeofmine I've been having a particularly stressful time lately. So naturally, I've been reaching for chocolate. Except I didn't have any actual chocolates on hand, so I've been popping @mrspatels truffles each time. This explains my increased milk production. #eatallthechocolate #makeallthemilk 4d

littlelifeofmine When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I craved askadinya (loquat) in the craziest way imaginable. So much so that I made Rami pull over on the freeway to pick some. (Okay so first we passed it and had to exit then come back around. The tree was huge!! Couldn't resist.) Full circle moment, right here. Jenin went into the neighborhood and picked all this for me. 6d
  •   therealrohinabasiruddin Thank you thank you!!finally found out what loquat is called in English!!!😀😀 6d
  •   maahumc My mother in law has a loquat tree and it's been fruiting beautifully lately! We always have lots, if you're ever in SoCal I'll give you a bucketful iA! 6d
  •   nursobah.oumiworks You shd come over to Singapore. Loquats and its 'cousins' are plenty. I'm always envious of ladies who get cravings during their pregnancies . I had no cravings AT ALL in all my 4 pregnancies. No chance to bully the husband, heh. 5d
  •   maahumc Actually, do you have any good ideas/recipes on what to do with an overflow of loquats? They fruit all of a sudden in abundance and would love some suggestions on what to do with them so they don't go bad (besides sharing of course! ) 5d
  •   zubaidahsaloojee @fhragie @miss_katy07 there are other people that eat this!!! @miss_katy07 might be too young to remember, but @fhragie,do you remember them lining the driveway at 16 Crow? And do you remember the day that they were chopped down? :( 5d
  •   nomadic_chica Ooohhh I love that fruit!!! 5d
  •   eulzk They're $1 a piece here in Cleveland 5d

littlelifeofmine From this angle, you can't see the 27 napkins, spilled cup of water, or half a plate of rice on the floor.

littlelifeofmine Be yourself. Unless you can be Iman, then be Iman.
Inspired by @thefoleyfam's scarf tying trick to create a cute vest. Made me feel all stylish like my big sis @imansalam. #imangene (Obviously, I'm poking fun at Iman's signature pose here. Wasn't taking myself seriously.)

littlelifeofmine Shout out to my good friend since jr. high school, @tea_loves_cake. She created this beautiful #peacock cake for my little cousin's bridal shower. The red velvet cake inside was so moist.
It's so cool to see what we grow up to become.

littlelifeofmine The very first word ever revealed from the #Quran was "Iqra". #Read. Our #IslamicHeritage values reading, books, and knowledge. The Librarian of Basra tells the true story of how Alia Muhammad Baker saved books from destruction during the war. This is the respect we want to pass on to our children to have towards books. 1w
