Crisp Mornings

Who ever told me that Florida does not experience Fall season, literally lied. On my face. Ofcourse we are not talking about leaves shedding or turning orange, red and yellow. All I’m saying is the weather has changed. The wind is crisp, the mornings and evenings are very, very pleasant. You can still do without layers and have fun out in the open. That’s all I ever wanted. A break from the heat. And now I have it. Thank you God! Β πŸ™‚
After spending major part of my pregnancy during the hot and humid months, this pleasant change in the weather is a big relief.

No Autumn in Sight

Autumn is no where to be seen. Who am I kidding! This is Florida. We will be lucky if we experience autumn for 5 days straight! Again, it’s my first year in this state, so I’m yet to experience it myself. The locals say that the weather stays warm till October and then suddenly cools down (skips to winter), which again would be very mild.
When I left Boston (this February), I was SO over snow, and I secretly wished to never come back to snow. Now look at me, hoping for the autumn season to arrive and waiting for the temperature to cool down. Frankly, I.m secretly missing the colder weather, and have no shame in accepting this! The leaves changing color, the weather cooling down, change in wardrobe, the beginning of festival season, the pumpkin spice coffees – ughh.. I’ want it all! NOW!!!  😦
P.S. 29 weeks pregnant today. 3rd trimester is hard (like really HARD). More on that in my next post!

All Basic in Chicago

Comfort was my main concern for this vacation (considering the pregnancy). I simply wanted to be able to walk comfortably and not feel out of breath, or care about the shoes hurting my feet or not supporting my back and legs with enough cushion etc. Hence, I packed my reliable white pair of shoes. They are trendy, they go with everything, and kept my feet (and back) happy.
Being 7 months pregnant has literally compelled me to dig my closet for loose fitting blouses and swinging dresses. This dress is an year old (or more I guess), and was perfect for my vacation day out. The weather in Chicago was perfect. No humidity, no heat, just perfect Fall weather. The mornings and evenings were a little chilly and the days were not that warm – just perfect. It reminded me of my Boston days. I miss that. Le Sigh..!!
Oh and I finally entered my third trimester (feels like an achievement to be honest!). The baby has become more active and keeps kicking all-the-time. Sometimes the kicks are so strong, they make my belly jump! Specially, when I sit down to eat, I constantly feel the kicks. It feels quite unusual (rather weird) when you are eating and something someone is kicking and moving inside your belly. Oh the joys of pregnancy..!! It never ends.

Blog turns 4

My (cute little) Blog turned 4 last week! Yikess!! I celebrated that night. At home. Cooked Pasta. Husband and me devoured. Clicked zero pictures. Sorry, no proof! πŸ˜›

Now that another milestone has been achieved, let’s move on! It was a bright Sunday morning. After gulping a huge/delicious brunch at an ocean-view cafe in my city, (can’t you see I love Florida??) we strolled on the ocean-walk, clicked pictures, spent an hour or so just talking, and admiring the view and weather. Such Sundays are the best, I tell you!
