Hello and Salam,

I’m Amnah.  Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m a pure Cali girl.  Mother to three little girls. Wife to a hubby that came to this country over 10 years ago from Jenin, Palestine that has built himself up and makes me proud of him everyday.  As a Muslim American Mom, I hope my blog will banish stereotypes and misconceptions.

I love to bake though not every batch of cookies or cake is a success.  I’ll sew any pattern I find online that seems manageable for me - the more straight lines, the better!  I enjoy crafting with my kids even though sometimes my girls don’t enjoy crafting with me.  I’m embarrassed when someone refers to me as a “photographer” because I feel like I have sooooo much to learn, but I do get a good kick out a of a great pic I’ve taken.  Living in a rental house, I do my best to make it feel more like a home with random home projects here and there.  I love entertaining and will jump at any chance for a party.

Here on my blog, you’ll find all sorts of ramblings about this little life of mine.

Glad to have you here. Do sit and stay a while.

      Salams Nuha! Just checked out your blog and I absolutely love it! Yay for new blog friends. I’m so glad you’ve come over from Iman’s blog. That reminds me to thank her for the shout out. I hope you find something of benefit here. Do sit and stay awhile…

    Salam Amnah…love to see all your pics. May I know what camera are you using? TQ

    • Amnah says:

      Glad you enjoyed the pictures. I own a Canon Rebel XSi. I shot all of the pictures with my kit lens (the lens that came with my camera). The Canon Rebel line is very user friendly.

    Salam Amnah,

    i absolutely love your blog. it gives great inspiration to take on tasks and projects that i would normally steer away from. Like crafty eid projects and simply baking with my 5 year old girl.

    I love how you incorporate eid traiditions and create wonderful memories with your kids. Mashallah, what you are doing is amazing.

    i love the idea of the gingerbread house in xmas but i wanted to adapt it to eid. I was wondering if you could do a post on your take of a Kaba gingerbread house – if you don’t think its too tacky???? :)

    • Amnah says:

      Thank you for your kind words :-) I’m glad that you enjoy my blog so much. I think a gingerbread Kaa’ba or mosque would be a fun idea. I didn’t get a chance to try any new crafts or recipes for this Eid since I was out of town. InshaAllah I will attempt something in the future as it seems like something my kids would enjoy.

    You’re “little life” is an amazing one! I stumbled on your blog while looking for ideas for my sons Monster party at the end of next month. You’re not only extremely charming but hilarious too. I was literally LOL-ing in my living room. I can tell how much you truly love what you do and for that I LOVE this blog. I’m in Berkeley, it’s so nice to have inspiration just over the bridge :) Good luck and blessings to you and your family. And much love to your new edition!

    I somehow stumbled onto your website while researching about Ramadan. I would like to ask for you assistance, I am a room mom to my daughters 3rd grade class. For the holiday celebrations we are doing them based on celebrations around the world, so we can learn and share with the children cerebration that are different from there own,

    We need to do a brief overview and history, a craft, and have a snack so I am trying to find out what the best ones to do are, and learn as I go along. Any info or feedback would be great.

    Hello Amnah,

    I coincidently came across your blog via Pinterest while I was looking for Ramadan ideas for kids to put on my new blog. I must stay your blog is AMAZING!! I’m a British Muslim mom and I have started blogging recently about my Muslim lifestyle and discovered my dream blog here! Your blog is so much different than many other blogs I came across because of its simplicity, very good photography and nice sincere humbleness I saw in the posts I read so far.

    I followed you on all social media. I hope you don’t think of me as a stalker when you see me everywhere haha.

    Good luck to you.
