Silver Lining

I have something to share today. As you know I blog when I feel like I have something to share, some thing to write about. I can’t just put up ten pictures and call it a post. It has never been like that on this blog and will never be. Anyways, so back to the topic. My last post might have come across as angry or maybe even sad. But that is not how I am feeling today, or these days. I have come to appreciate some good things this pandemic has forced us in to. For instance –
I have not missed a single day of my workout since the social distancing started. I am beginning to see the fruits of my hard work now. Patting myself for the effort and determination.
I have eaten 95 percent of my meals at home, all home-cooked. Initially, when all this started, I used to miss going out and eating at a nice joint and not having to cook something. But those cravings have subsided. Ofcourse, we still do take-outs once a week, we are no saints! 😉
I am on top of my laundry game. Who doesn’t like clean, folded and ironed clothes!
My sleep schedule has improved SIGNIFICANTLY. 9 pm is bedtime now. You’ve no idea how big of an achievement this is, for us as a family! 😊 Dark circles are a thing of  the past now.
I get more work done from home. Yes, thankfully I am still employed and lucky (and very grateful) be able to work from home. Cutting down on ‘travel to work’ really gives me an extra hour and half during the day to get more work done! No complaints here.
These are just few things which feel like blessings to me. I know all this may not apply to everyone, as these trying times are testing all of us. But my point for this post is to look for a silver lining. This is my silver lining. Hope is the only way we will get through this.

Also today we are celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary. Thought of dressing up in this red lace saree which I teamed up with a crop top for our Italian Lunch take-out. 😛

Indian Glitz & Glam

It was quite a month long break! What say people? Did you miss me? Did you miss my posts? I surely missed you all my lovely readers, but then I was enjoying my vacation way too much hence I took a little break from the blogging community. However, I am back now! My vacation is over, and the routine life is back in place. I am back in States. To all my Indian readers – how were your holidays/festivals? Did you have loads of fun? Did you have a blast? Because I did! Being in India during this festive season is the best decision ever. No one else celebrates their festivals like we Indians do! We eat, we gift, we travel, we buy, we give, we celebrate, we literally have a blast (specially on Diwali)! What say??
Anyhow, I must get over my vacation days now considering I don’t want you guys to feel J or anything 😉 (specially my Indian readers/bloggers/friends who did not get a chance to visit India this year)!
Today I am sharing a very few pictures from the main festivals/ceremonies I celebrated during my visit to India. This time I was totally in to Saris. Here’s the proof..

P.S. Shall post more pictures from my visit in the coming posts! So stay tuned 😀
