This is it!

With the world not ending, I've decided I'm going to work towards one of my passions - writing! I've endlessly been blaming circumstances, using lack of time as an excuse. But even I've realized now, that it won't work. I've gotta do what I've gotta do. So here I am making a resolute resolution that I'll be doing more writing in 2013. Short stories, random lines, poems, long paragraphs...everything! So if you're my follower, or if you stumble upon this blog by chance, you can take it as a fair warning...that I'll have a lot to say...on a regular basis.

Even my friends at work are helping me do this - with writing prompts on a regular basis. :D Feels like school again..yippeeee!

Cheers to the New Year, Cheers to writing more in the New Year! 

Here's to WORDS!

Balancing Act

It's been crazy long since I wrote. No excuses! I've just been tied up in more ways than one.

I feel like I have a whole lot of responsibilities now..running a house, cooking, laundry..the works. It's crazy. And between all that I have a day job, try to read (failing miserably!), contemplating a fitness program.

So how does one do it? I don't get it! It's not like I don't have the time. But it's this feeling that if I do C, I'll have lesser time to do A and B (which have fallen into a routine now).

I'd love to hear from people who're experts at this!

Fifth was a quiet one at home. VJ was not well - a viral, stomach infection, dehydration..all together. So it was quiet. The in-laws were around, so it was a big help taking care of VJ.

Though number was quiet..our first engagement anniversary was fun! :D I don't have a picture of that day..but it was a great one! :)

On our 4th, I was in Sri Lanka with my team on an offsite. So, I guess the fourth was our first time away from each other on the seventeenth. Hehe..I love all the numbers in that sentence.

Anyway, our fourth was good on an individual level - I had a fun time in Sri Lanka. It's a beautiful place and I'm definitely going back with V soon! :)

It's been a while since Month 3 of the wedding - May 17.
3 was great! We just got back from Pradeep and Nisha's wedding in Cochin. We had a blast, the wedding was beautiful and all round we were a happy bunch of people!

Marriage of peers, friends, seems to be hounding my life. There are engaged people or married people everywhere. And of course, the on-off baby carrying one too!

Hoping this 3 brings many such happy moments, good fortune and loads of luck!! :)

P.S - Cheers to our first couple picture posted publicly!

The Recent Blessing

This post is long due. Because the last two months have been pure marital bliss for more reasons that one.
With Marriage comes a lot of reluctance to let go of your life before, and the people associated with it. But when you have no reluctance to deal with, it's absolutely brilliant.

I'd say marriage is a blessing for me. Not because V can cook, and how!! (He insists he cooks during weekends, all meals..and forces me to rest!)
V does everything he can to make me happy and keep me that way. He puts up with my craziness, times when I go absolutely quiet, my over-the-top happy times, and just the general me. I've always thought myself to be very low maintenance, but intrinsically, I don't think so. And V somehow manages to keep up with all of my insanity.

He's super observant and catches every mood change. He somehow knows what you're thinking, and just steals the words from your head/mouth before you say it. Sigh -- its true when they say you do find the right person eventually. I hope he understands that in all my craziness, I would do anything under the sun for him because our relationship is the 'truly, madly, deeply' kinds. The kinda ones 'forever' is made of. Because I feel this incessant need to impress him, do nice things for him, cook for him, do everything in my power to take all the badness away from our world. (Yeah, I know you're thinking love-sick puppy, etc. :P but it does get to you...remember that Enrique song - you can run you can hide but you can't escape my love. Something like that!)

Anyhoo..for all those single people out there..who're weary of taking the big leap of faith, I say, TAKE IT AND GO!! It's worth all the weariness, apprehension, tension, stress, nervousness, etc..The goodness comes to you in the smallest, most trivial ways possible -- but more importantly, in the most meaningful way ever!

Go on! Ready, steady "Leap!"

Two months of being married today. The month that was:

2. Finding a house.
2. Buying Furniture
2. Setting up the house
2. Making it a home

It was less hectic as compared to the first, but we were out on our own this time, doing couply things, living a domesticated life. What fun!! :)
