Happy New Year!

I know! I Know..it has been a million years, but I am back. I hope you all had an amazing 2017 and start to the new year so far. One of my major resolutions for 2018 is to start blogging again. Life got the best of me last year, and between moving and facing new challenges in my life I just lacked the inspiration and time to blog. One of the things I like to do at the end of each year is to reflect on what I can do better or be better at in the next year. For me one of the things that I really missed doing was blogging, because it was a way for me to create and share as well as show my creative side, and a fun way to write and interact with the world.

So hears to all of us doing our best to fulfill all of our resolutions for the years as best as we can. I know that life happens and sometimes it can be hard but if we push through we can achieve all of our goals! Cheers to the new year and I hope you all have a great 2018!

Happy Diwali!!

Happy (indian) new year everyone!!

Diwali is one of the biggest festival that Hindus celebrate with great enthusiasm and happiness in India. The festival is celebrated for five continuous days, where the third days is celebrated as the main Diwali festival or “Festival of Lights” Different colorful varieties of fireworks are always associated with this festival. On this auspicious day, people light up diyas {top right hand image in the picture above} and candles all around their house. They perform Laxmi Puja in the evening and see divine blessing of the Goddess of Wealth. The festival is never complete without exchange of gifts {I gave everyone a plate filled with Indian sweets and snacks), to all dear ones.

The top left picture is not something i drew, but the two bottom left and right hand corners are the two rangoli’s I drew in front of my house of a Peacock and a Ganesh!!!
