You wouldn't believe what I am going to tell you. But I will tell you anyway! Because it is just so incredibly special to me.
This cardigan that I am wearing in these pictures; by the way the pictures hardly do it any justice. This creamy white, warm, soft as cotton, timelessly designed, such intricately detailed cardigan was hand knitted by my mom some 30 years ago! She made it for herself as a part of her wedding trousseau and has kept it in the best of its shape till now.
When I saw it on my latest trip to India, I knew I had to have it. And here it is keeping me warm in Seattle on those grey rainy days when there isn't a hope of sun.
Also, I did not have to think about twice it, but this cardigan is totally going with me to Paris tomorrow; to the land of art, history and fashion!
Au revoir Seattle! You better be good and show some sunny days when we get back!

Hawaii was an incredible experience. Even if its been around 3 weeks since we got back, I can still kind of 'transpose' myself back there and imagine the winds rustling palm trees. Or the feeling of coolness rendered by shaved ice down my throat. Or maybe the grainy-yet-soft sand between my toes.
But out of all these images, what hold prominence for me is the vision of that big fiery red/orange sun just sitting quietly above the horizon and slowly making its way down. Accompany it with the sound of waves and I am in bliss!
I have countless number of images of sunsets on different days that I want to share here, but for now, these will do!
You can be anywhere on the island and not miss a sunset. Just make your way towards the water and there it is!
Watching sunset together was one of my most favorite moments
After long active days that consisted of beach time or hiking, these few moments before dinner were my own and were immensely cherished!

Hope you are having the best day ever wherever you are!

This is what Hawaii has been all about for me!
Cool sea breeze in your hair, nice blue water as far as you can see, most beautiful sunsets on the horizon, that salt water taste on your lips all day long, wind ruffling your dress ever so...it was just magical!
P.S. We are currently on our way to San francisco to meet up with family! Yayee! So if you experience some silence around these parts, it is safe to assume that I am having lots of fun with my niece and nephew!

I had been meaning to start this series called 'Travel Tales' for the longest time I can remember. Whenever I come back from a holiday, there is always an overwhelming amount of pictures to sort through. Also some vacations are longer than others, I never am able to justify dumping them all in one post, some not following a particular theme because one day is totally different from other. Hence, you may have rarely, if ever seen pictures from my travels.
What I intend with this series is picking up one outing/restaurant/experience from the trip and talk about that and just that. In doing so, it is probable that one destination may only be featured once or maybe multiple times, you get the drift!?
So, let's take this step together, slowly, and see where it goes, right!? I am always open to suggestions to make it better, more 'reader friendly', if you will.
Past december, I was in Delhi to be with family for almost 2 months. Close second to being with family and celebrating my birthday with them, was food. Be it home-cooked, street food, or as gourmet as you can get, food is always the highlight.
Our visit to Bukhara, Delhi was one such occasion. We visited with family one sunny weekend in december, when the sunlight is still strong but there is a definite chill in the air.
I am not in the least bit apologetic about the lack of any food pictures, because as soon as it came, every bite of it was devoured!
Oh, and you get these cloth aprons to wear and there is not cutlery served. You gotta savor and lick every bite of it with your hands!
P.S. I am still on hawaii time and sipping on pina coladas like its my job!
Have a great week ahead everyone!
