My name is Samira. I was born in the Chicago, but it’s in Georgia where I have planted roots. I’m an English teacher who has 2 kids, a Palestinian husband, and a Persian family. I started this blog in 2014 with my biggest goal in mind: to write so I don’t forget. I was forgetting what is was like to do things with my kids even though the events happened just a few months before. Over the years, this spot has become less of my children’s chronicles and more of my own. Family life is intertwined, but I’m still in pursuit of understanding my own roles, my own views on life. You’ll find here that I’ll share moments of beauty and challenges that I find in unexpected places. I hope you’ll join me for my monthly figuring-it-outs.
