Old Quebec City is like no other place in Canada. It seems like a place out of an old book. Or a town transported from Europe. On a mini vacation two years ago, I discovered the beauty of this French city, the marvels of its cuisine, and the absolutely lovely people.

It was inevitable. It was fate. No matter where I was and where I was going, one day I was going to end up in Rome. Because as they say, ‘All roads lead to Rome’, right?
Have you ever missed a place without having actually been there? That’s how I felt about Rome my entire life. I have missed it as if in another lifetime, I had lived there for a lifetime. So you can imagine my exhilaration and anticipation leading up to that flight. Continue reading
Every time this year, when I am falling hopeless in love with spring all over again, I try to photograph the spawn with the magnificent apple blossom and magnolia trees that are breathtaking this time of the year.

I am an accountant.
It’s an exhilarating and exciting job. Everyday, I have key decisions to make like what color to choose for my spreadsheet report. Which file folder do I use? Which color stickies do I select? It’s almost as unpredictable and creatively satisfying as being Beyoncé. Continue reading
My husband and I are Canadians of Pakistani origin and have lived most of our lives in Canada. However, we still have extended families back home so this past December, after almost a decade, we decided to make things interesting and book a 14 hour flight with a flu-stricken child that took us half way around the globe to the land of tandoori chicken, chai, and at least half a million relatives.

When I am not mommy-ing, accounting or writing, I am photographing. My camera is my first baby and I have a trough of digital images that I have seldom shared so this week when I stumbled onto a photography blog (Cee’s photography: https://ceenphotography.com/cees-challenges/fun-foto-challenge/) that posts weekly photo challenges, I thought why not? Might as well air out some of these digital babies. The challenge this week is “Looking up on things” so here goes nothing. Continue reading
