Happy Thanksgiving :)

10:54 PM 2 Comments
For me , Thanksgiving is all about being thankful for the simple everyday things and people that we sometimes take for granted yet they make our life special every day of the year ..
It's about family , friends and loved ones and there is no greater joy than sharing this and every festival with them - and that's precisely what I am doing - celebrating with family and friends on a trip to Zion national park .. but it would be incomplete if I did not thank you -my lil family here , for being there always to laugh , listen , share and care.. You make the blogging world a better place :)
I wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving :)

Love in the Lone State ..

10:58 PM 6 Comments
I've had a lot of time this past week - one of the perks of accompanying the husband on work trips ..others being relaxing , eating out , shopping , catching up on sleep and conversations , also bringing myself upto speed on all the writing and reading I've been missing in this bloggy world and speaking of which I read this great article on love and marriage last night .. part of the Modern Love column series published in the NY times.
While you can read the entire article here , I'll just share the part which reverberated most with me ...

"My husband and I don’t have a great “meeting” story. We met in a conventional way and had a conventional wedding. And in some sense, we lead a conventional life.
But my husband has seen me at my worst, at my most vile. And he has seen me at my best. He knows the things I don’t tell anyone, and the lies that I tell everyone but him. I have made sacrifices for him and been angry about it. Sometimes his flaws are so egregious, so blatant, they are all I see. And sometimes his kindness is so stunning that I am humbled.

And that’s love. Big, epic, fairy-tale love. The kind of love people write about. The kind of love that could inspire a poem."

The kind of love that for me could inspire the next blog post maybe :P
-a blog post on my one week's epicurean lifestyle in this city of Texas called Houston ..which btw lasts another 2 days so if you've been here , share some wisdom on the best of the best , will you :)

Where does one begin and what does one say when someone's been as bad as me and not penned down a single word , thought , happening these past 2 months .. I guess even sorry doesn't cut it :( .. 
The worst was when my own flesh and blood , my mom ( et tu Brutus ) commented on if I planned to resuscitate the blog in February with love bytes .. come to think of it - it wouldn't have been half as bad if this were the month of February instead of November ..after all love conquers all , right ?

So where have I been and what have I been upto .. lets just say ...

Couldn't resist sharing this forwarded message I received the other day , it really made me laugh out loud , but the truth be told ( with all the awesomeness ;) I can muster ) is that I've literally been all over the place with both good stuff and not so good stuff happening in plenty but I'm alive and kicking and grateful for everything .. infact couldn't sum it up better than this status message I posted on my wall the other day ..

" Sometimes things have a funny way of falling in place , like when you least expect them to , but then , just maybe , that's how its supposed to be .. "
and if they don't , bring out the lemons , the salt and that shot of tequila ;)

Have a great weekend.. Much love :)
