Another Birthday

I turned another year older (or say another year wiser) this Friday! Birthday’s do not excite me that much anymore. Though I am VERY grateful for all the wishes and blessings (birthday or no birthday..!!) that my family and friends shower on me! Your blessings mean a lot, and that’s all that matters.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that now I understand why my parents never used to be ‘super excited’ about their birthdays (unlike us kids). I am not against celebration or anything.. I am just saying that in the past decade or two, all this ‘birthday’ thing has been hyped way too much!

Anyhow, I spent my day low-key with my family, baked a cake for my own birthday (which I also cut).. then went out to surf Boston downtown. I try to enjoy all the small-happy moments that life has to offer! 🙂

Beachy Feeling

This whole month just went by so fast! That’s how it is, good times just fly (on a jet speed).. Nonetheless, I am simply living in the moment.

Since we moved to this city, we have spent most of our weekends simply walking in the city, visiting museums and national monuments. With Mom’s arrival, we thought of finally breaking the chain and going somewhere else. The Sun is shining pretty nice these days. Some cringe about it, but I don’t complain. Why would I, when I waited and prayed for it!

This is what I wore to the beach. Kept it light and played with the accessories a little.
