When you live in a great city like San Francisco, you’d do spontaneous mini photo shoots too.

This is from a few weeks ago, outside the Legion of Honor museum. Taken with my Google Pixel 2XL, brightened slightly with Snapseed.

❤️ Happy Anniversary to our lovely Mama and her wonderful husband, Sayed.

Insha’Allah a lifetime of wedded bliss, happiness and love. May God continue to bless your beautiful union for many more years to come. ❤️

What is summer to you? Summer to me is sand at my feet, waves crashing, a light breeze and a warm sun between a few clouds. Summer to me is my nephew’s glee when we bonded at the beach just him and I, chasing waves, picking up shells and laughing our hearts out for no apparent reason.

Here’s to a wonderful season and a happy August, peeps! 😍

Be Like Shabana. Be a Beggar for Life

Be Like Shabana. Be a #BeggarForLife.

Yesterday’s funeral services for our sister and friend Shabana Patel was bittersweet. We gathered amongst hundreds from many communities to support her children and honor her life. We hugged, wept, smiled and laughed remembering her warm hugs, tears, smiles and laughter.

Shabana always deemed herself a #BeggarForLife as she constantly raised funds and volunteered for many charitable organizations. Her reach went beyond Sacramento and the Bay Area when many of us learned she helped found the Ihsan Foundation for West Africa. This project supports a school in Sierra Leone and became her passionate mission. We urge you all to help continue her legacy in supporting this amazing foundation for years to come, Insha’Allah.

May she rest in God’s eternal peace and light, may her legacy live beyond our years, ameen. 🤲🏻

Last night’s view from our home at 9pm. I didn’t even adjust the lighting in any of the pictures, just zoomed in to reflect the lights from the last sliver of the sun’s rays and the street lights by the beach.

Can’t help but love my city! 😍

Quote of the Day

Don’t forget to help our sisters and brothers in Sudan, Yemen and across the globe, even with a small prayer on this glorious Friday.

Happy and blessed Friday, peeps!
