Holiday Cheer

Now that the holiday cheer is over and everyone is back to business, can we talk about how desperately we wait for the festivities to come and how quickly they get over! I feel the same every year, do you too Ha! Just kidding.. ofcourse this time flies by, because we wait for it so impatiently, we enjoy it, we celebrate, we eat good food, we dress up, we party, we get together, we (try to) forget our sorrows and just enjoy the beautiful moments, we make memories – well my list is infinite.. I just love holidays and celebrations way too much. What can I say.. I am a romantic at heart!
In another news, we are traveling to India! Its going to be our first visit as a family of four.. how exciting that is! I just can’t contain my excitement. These days are being spent packing suitcases and making lists of things we don’t want to forget. And I am equally dreading the journey with my two little ones. Oh God, help us.

My little Bumble Bee

This was our first year celebrating Halloween. And oh what fun it was! Technically the night hasn’t ended yet, but the trick-or-treaters are probably off to bed by now (at least mine is!). We dressed our little munchkin as a Bumble Bee and took her trick or treating and also handed out lots and lots of candies to the kids. This was our first Halloween since moving in to our new home. It was lovely meeting our new neighbors and getting to know the neighborhood. Frankly speaking we enjoyed the night more than her. Oh how fun it is to be a kid again! We made so many memories which will be cherished for life. She may not remember these times but we definitely will!
Happy Halloween!!!

Flower Power

Trust me when I say I sat in front of my computer so, so many times to write something but I just didn’t find the motivation. All I could ever think was I would be better off playing with my little one than sitting in front of the screen. These moments are so, so limited, so precious, so special that I simply don’t want to miss even a single second of her childhood. Time is just flying and I just want to be present for her – all the time, in every way I can. And being offline makes me happy, it keeps me sane.
So excuse me while I try to juggle my life while trying to live it.
Oh, what fun! 🙂
Here are some pictures we clicked yesterday early morning before breakfast and grocery shopping at the local farmers market. This blouse that I picked from the clearance section really fit the backdrop. Can you spot me in those bushes? 😛

Zesty

Would you believe me if I say that I still can’t come around the fact that I have a cute little daughter? A daughter who is cute like a button and oh, so adorable. I might sound like a broken record, but that is exactly how I feel. Every night when I put her to sleep in my arms and shower her with a thousand kisses, my eyes tear up. And every night I thank the supreme power for giving me the gift of motherhood. This is the MOST satisfying job in the world. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING else satisfies me more than holding her in my arms. I don’t think this feeling will ever get old. It has been more than 7 months and here I am, still standing in awe and wondering – how on earth my life turned in to this beautiful fairy tale!
In all honesty, every day is not like a fairy tale. Some days are longer (and harder) than others. But such is life – never the same. No two days are same – and that is how it should be.
