Hello 2020 & Word of the Year #WOTY

..and just like that, another year has come and gone! I still remember coming up with a Word of the Year for 2019 in all excitement and writing a blog post about it. I was swamped with ideas and had a lot of expectations from this year. Before we get …

Letter to My Teenage Self #WordsMatter

20 Years ago, I was a teenager. And this letter is to that girl who has had her heart broken, had trust issues and moreover, feared for her Mom’s life. Dear Teenage Me, I know you are going through tough times. But I promise you, Mom will get better soon. …

…and she is Six! Happy Blog Birthday!

Today, the first of September 2019 marks the sixth blog birthday and I can’t be any more excited. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you’d be well aware of my blogging journey. From a hobby blog sharing the recipes I tried in my kitchen, it has now …

Outside my Window #WordsMatter

Right outside my window, I see these gigantic hills, now a bright shade of green, thanks to the non-stop rain since the last week. Shouldn’t this inspire me to write a few words or come up with a beautiful poem? I wonder. Alas, no! All I do is take it …

Six Months, Already?

I can’t believe six months have already gone by, in 2019. Where did time go, I wonder. It sure wasn’t an eventful year uptil now and I didn’t do any justice to my Word of the Year. If I have to rewind and review the last half-year, I would probably …

Hello February!

Hello February! One month has already gone and I’ll tell you how! I had a bad start to 2019 even after all the planning and thinking! Towards the end of January, I was seen flustered and God knows I wanted the month to come to an end. ASAP. For starters, …

Hello 2019 and Word of the Year

Every year-end I could be seen swamping with new ideas and also fear about the future. It has got more to do with having a lot of expectations for the new year – hope, belief and wanting to do everything that would, in turn, bring me happiness and a sense …

November Ketchup With Me

This month has gone by so quickly and I can’t believe we are already in the last week. Needless to say, with the festivities and the launch of my YouTube channel, things were pretty hectic this side. Yes, on my last Monthly Ketchup post, I had mentioned that I was …

Making space for silence #FridayReflections

Music is an essential part of my life. No, I cannot sing (though many say that I definitely could after hearing my not-so-hoarse voice. I simply thank my genes!), but I spend most time of the day, listening to music. My daily chores – be it cooking, doing laundry, walking, …
