Hello and welcome to Our Story Time, a place to be inspired in simple, purposeful, thoughtful ways. I'm Huma, and I'm so touched you've chosen to while away a little time with me here. 



I write about creating a home, navigating motherhood and living simply and purposefully whenever I can with my husband and kids. Our Story Time is my note to self, to remember to take a moment.

Every Wednesday, I publish what I call a long read, pieces I hope you can slow down in and escape into, away from the noise of the every day. But also, make some sense of it too.

In between my long reads, I also write a couple of short and sweet little series:

Thoughtful Little Things, a fortnightly ode to finding gratitude in the simplest of everyday things

Ways to Strive, essays on navigating the trickier parts of life

Thoughts for the Month, a capture of time turning.

You can browse all my posts, long and short, in the categories below:

Thoughtful Family

Thoughtful Living

Thoughtful Style

Thoughtful Work

So come, take a while and sit with me. It’s good to have you here.
