Taking a timeout!

How did you like the last post by Soma? Yup, I knew it! I love her too! And I hope that you didn't miss me either because I had left you in good hands. Well, I'm going have to leave all you lovely readers of Indian Simmer in a few more good hands for a while since I will not be around for a little. A month to be specific. I'm going to India!



After more than three years I'm finally getting a chance to visit home again and you can only imagine how excited I must be. I can't wait to go back to the streets where I grew up, sit with mom and talk for hours with cups of chai coming one after the other and relive all those little moments of the past with my brother and old friends. But the part that I'm looking forward to most is introducing my daughter to all of that! Can't wait to see the look on her face when her grandpa puts her on his shoulder and goes for a walk or when she sits with her grandma for pooja (prayers). The bags are packed and ready to go but the idea that we are actually going is yet to sink in. Maybe it will by this evening when we board the plane and fly thousands of miles away from a home that we made to the home that made us!

Spring

I'll miss you guys, but try not to have too much fun when I'm not around! I'll be back soon though with tons of new memories and zillions of photos to share with you. Ciao!

  8. You have a fabulous time in India. Enjoy your family, friend and also presenting India to your daughter. Can't wait to see the pics.
    Our cherry trees in SF don't have stunning blooms like the ones captured in the shot. This is one thing I miss from the East Coast. What is the aperture on these pics? Beautiful focus.

  15. I love the gorgeous pinks in these photos! Great shots!!

    I visited my hometown in Canada a couple of months ago after not having gone back for over three years too. It was incredible to go back to spend time with friends and family I hadn't seen in years!

    I hope you have a wonderful time and look forward to seeing some of your photos from the holiday upon your return!

  20. The feeling of pride and excitement of bringing my child, especially my first born, home to my family of origin and introducing her and watching herinteract with those I love is something I will never forget...I am so happy you will experience this. And also watching your little one experience a whole new world. How exciting! And the pictures of those little flowers growing out of the trunk was amazing (not that the first one wasn't breathtaking!). Have a wonderful trip.
