One day you'll meet a guy
And ultimately he's going to find out,
How you chew, how you sip, how you dance,
How you smell at every point of the day..
How you look without makeup, how you love chocolate,
how you don't admit you get scared watching horror movies,
how you can be hyper at times, how certain things make you really happy,
how you can bully him to get things done, how cranky you get when you are tired,
how you think you look bad in all the photos,
how you cry in the movies, how you act silly when you get drunk....
He's going to know your deepest fears and your fondest dreams
He's going to know everything about you.
And you know what?
He's still going to love you.
I met that guy seven years ago and never let him go :-)
Happy Valentine's day Sudheer Tenneti,
It will always be you that gives flight to the butterflies inside me..
P.S: People who don't believe in Valentine's day, you have every right not to celebrate it. But the ones who complain, please stop whining about it. Showing love on V'Day doesn't mean not loving on other days. Only someone with the cognitive faculties of a brain-damaged person would think that V-Day excuses them from year-round acts of love. And yeah don't worry about the greater good of human kind, you don't have to fall for the commercial ploys of Hallmark and make it sound like a manufactured holiday, even a simple love note will do.. Have fun spreading love, it isn't a bad thing after all..Happy Valentine's Day everyone :-)

"Only once in your life..you will find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you've never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can't wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or a walk, silly talks become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it's like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life. In their presence, there's no need for continuous conversation, but you find you're quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like the rain drops, a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there's a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that's so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life"... I am so glad I found you Hubband :-)

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills...
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust...
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home...
Cause, I built a home..for you..for me
Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it's knees
By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me......

Happy Second Wedding Anniversary
It feels like just yesterday that we got married..Time just flies, ain't it?
One more Anniversary without you Mr.Hubby:-( some how all my India trips happen during summers.. I think it's time to break the spell.. Blow me a nice, loong flying kiss, that shall work :-)
Thanks for sending the cake Hero, loved it!! And that message of your's put a mile-wide smile on my face. Thankooo :-)
I received four really adorable hand-drawn cards for our Anniversary today. They are gifted by the seven and eight year old's in my Apartments. I was absolutely delighted. I am surprised that they remembered the day so well. The sketches are real cute.
- One card has Meera bhai on the left page, and star lit amoeba, smiling really wide on the right page :) (On second guesses, I think the amoeba is a star too, somehow it looked like amoeba to my pea-sized brain)
- Another card has lovely floral sketches and reads
"Wish you married life to Suddier Uncla and Rohini Akka"
Hahahaha Mr.Sudheer Uncle, dig it!!! :D :))))
- One more card has lots and lots of colored hearts and the biggest heart says
"To lovely Rohini Akka & Sudhier Uncle... Happy marriad life"
- Last card is a paper craft which says "To Sudhier Uncle and Rohini Akka"
Three things here
1. All the kids in my Apts call you UNCLE
2. None of the kids could spell your name right
3. I win..Muhahaha...Loser!!!
Anyways, the main reason for writing this post is to tell you this
"Happy Second Anniversary my dear lovely Sudheer Uncle, You are the best thing that ever happened to me" :-)
See you soon :)
Current mood: Lovey Dovey :D
Current song :Dream a little dream of me

Dream a little dream of me..
Stars shining bright above you..
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you?
Birds singing in the sycamore tree...
Dream a little dream of me...
Say nighty-night and kiss me..
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me..
While I'm alone, blue as can be..
Dream a little dream of me...
Stars fading but I linger on, dear...
Still craving your kiss...
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear...
Just saying this...
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you..
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you..
But in your dreams, whatever they be..
Dream a little dream of me...

I was sitting on my couch lazily watching the snowfall outside the window, thinking how the dried tree felt standing in snow. I looked at the tree closely, it stood so peaceful. It was moving slowly to the tunes of chilled breeze. Even after two months of winter, it appeared as if it was enjoying the snow unlike we humans who crib how cold, messy, slippery and harsh the snow is. I then remembered how it felt during my first snow..When a snow flake came dancing and landed on my face, it felt like a soft kiss.
We get busy with life and as the winter gets cold and older, we no longer take time to enjoy snow. We go out with grumpy faces, we no longer laugh about slipping and falling down instead crib and whine.
Sometimes I feel like doing something different, something totally silly and today was one such days. I wanted to experience how the gushing cold wind felt on my skin. I took my cam, went outside in my pajamas and slippers, with a hot cup of chai. I sat on the bench covered with snow in the backyard. The view was beautiful..fresh snow always looks nice. It was -6°C outside.
Snow flakes quietly settled on the tea and melted right away. Tea felt amazing in the freezing temperature. I am not a big fan of hot tea but today I liked it :-) I think more than the taste, it is the warmth that I relished. I could see my hand shaking a little while I took the third sip.
I managed to click couple of photos. And by the end of 5 mins my tea turned cold. I dint complain much as I love iced tea :P.
I tried capturing snow flakes with my cam but in vain. I went for a short walk and after sometime I could not feel my face, hands and feet. It was time to come back. I had fun in the company of snow today.I had to soak my feet and hands in warm water after coming back home but the experience was totally worth it. Sometimes its really important to simply "experience"..and just "be"..
It somehow reminded me the fun we had in Pune..I miss the bike rides with Sudheer in Pune during those rainy days. I miss feeling the rain drops hitting my face while driving at a speed of 80. I miss driving with him to the Cafe Coffee Day in drenched clothes and having a cold coffee watching the rain outside :-( I miss sharing hot corn with him, shivering in the rain.
Hmm..Ending this post with one of my favorite quotes.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a ride!"

There are few words which Mr.Hero keeps repeating every now and then. Meaningless words and phrases sometimes coined by him and sometimes taken from a book. He uses them without any particular meaning, for anything or everything. And eventually even I start using one or two without knowing.
Those words keep changing, they are seasonal..few of them are already extinct. That is the reason why I want to record those special meaningless words here, before we both completely forget about them and the fun moments we had while using them.
"Kimothi Kimothi Kothi"
even composed a song with such words and we are thinking to pass it on
to our next generations as the family song :P :D Hee ha ha...
This is how the lyrics go..Don't ask me the meaning, I have absolutely no clue :-)
And am in the process of choreographing dance steps for this :P
I know what you must be thinking..And you are right! Yeah We are CRAZY! :D
My dear blog get ready to hear many such weird meaningless words in the days to come :P

I know its been really really long since I last visited you..
Been busy with love, life and work :-( I hope you understand..
Well HE is doing good too. Nothing much has changed between us (even after almost 2 years of marriage :D )..
He is being the same ol' adorable guy I met before four years and I am being the same ol' annoying girl teasing and troubling him ;-). I wonder why he never complains :-|
Hmm..anyway in short Life with him is nothing less than AWESOME :-)
See you soon my dear blog. This time I promise I will definitely take time to narrate you our stories..

People say things change after marriage and I don't think I can deny it anymore..Only that it took me soo long to realize that things have changed..
I never knew before if I really enjoyed the kind of work I did..I wasn't even sure if that was what i wanted to do..
Now I realize the joy in doing what I really like..
Now I realized that I can create things I desire..
that I can shape my future the way I want and the way I really like..
It took me 25 years to find out what I really wanted to be..to explore, discover the true me and indulge in the real journey..
I try different things now..Things I would have never dared doing before..Things I thought I would never do..
Be it trying some odd hairstyle...
Be it dumping my high paying career and doing something which I don't even know has any worthy future...
Be it living the life the way I wanted..
What's the reason behind all this change I ask..
And the answer is simple.. The Freedom..
The freedom to be what I want to be..
The freedom to do what I want to do..
The freedom to embrace the result of my decisions..
The freedom to face the fear of doing something different..something totally new..
It is amazing to know as how he helped me find this freedom..how his love helped me see things which I never knew existed in me..how it showed the courage to follow nothing but my heart :) You made me believe that "true love will set you free"
Can't thank you enough hubby for how beautifully you changed the things for me and for how lovely you made this journey called marriage :)
Growing with you together is what makes it all worth while :)

He wakes up in the morning..looks around fanatically as if searching for something..
I, sitting on a chair nearby ask him if he was searching for his Cell Phone..
He nods no..
I ask him if he was looking for his laptop..
He says No..
I finally give up and ask him what it is..
He shows "Me"
Love you Honey :)
