Creations – 2018

This year has been quite a creative one for me. I have mentioned time and again, how my hobbies keep me sane. I remember my childhood days, how distracted I used to be during studies, would feel hungry, thirsty, visit the loo, pester mom and so many other things. But when I sat down, painting…

Travel Diaries – Dubare-Ranganathittu

After two trips consecutively, in months of December and Jan, I’d decided not to plan any travel for a while. With everyone saying, “How can you travel with such a small baby?”, we decided we’ll travel when he is a little older and things are more manageable. Little did we know, things are best managed…

I dream about

Having my own business. My creative and artistic learning put to use. Turning a distant passion into an everyday reality. A beautiful space, called home. Adorned with hand-crafted stuff. Peaceful and inviting. A shelf full of books, a seat by the window, a cup of tea and the time to enjoy a good read. A…

July – Book Review

Talking to the old self

I was reading the posts on my old blog and read the first post I had written 8 years back. 8 years, is quite a long time. When I started off, I never thought I’d last so long. The blog, my writing and I as a person have evolved so much over time. My posts…

The Birthday Bash

We had the birthday celebration for Gundu last Sunday. We had organized a Pooja, which was followed by cake cutting and lunch. I had a great time planning this first birthday for my darling son. I know he won’t remember any of it, but then what are photographs for? What started off with a discussion…

Catch up post!

It’s been a year since I am on leave. The time to get back to work is close, I report next Monday. I feel so bad when I think of being 8+ hours away from my baby. It is so hard for moms. They have to choose between their career and being a mother. If…

Me Time!

Music is food for the soul. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a leisurely hour to listen to music or enjoy it. At times I am so tired that any background music also seems like noise and irritates me. Long baths, with my favorite music playing in the background is something I used…

While winter strips of the trees, leaving them bare, it is during summer that you will find the trees dressed in their best green, blooming with the prettiest…

V – Vintage
