A month long vacation is over. I am back in New York, recuperating from the crazy, fun time I had in India with my family. We visited the northern part of India (where I am from) and the southern Part of India (Kerala), where my husband is from. The memories of the majestic mountains and the roaring sea, of spicy food and signature Indian sweets, of bargain shopping and luxe designer stores visits, of crazy traffic and open roads, of late night cups of 'chai' and endless chatting, of jaw splitting laughter and bitter sweet parting tears - I have it all boxed up in my heart to take comfort from when the time gets tough and I need solace.
Family. Home. Relationships. The stuff worth living for.
|Resort Alert: If you are planning to take a vacation in this part of the country, a great place to stay is the Moutnain Trail Resort|
The two week stay in my husband's hometown was heavenly. The fertile land of Kerala has tropical flowers blooming everywhere, the coconut trees dancing in sea breeze welcome you to the lush land often called 'God's own Country'. A must visit place if you are planning a trip to India.
|Lucky to live just a few hundred yards from this sleepy beach. Bliss.|
Fashion wise, it was a comfortable, casual, easy-breezy kinda vacation. I made use of my colored denim and lightly layered them for the early spring weather. Who knew back home I'll be greeted with dipping mercury with wind chill that makes it feel in the 30s!! Good thing I have the warm memories of my vacation to see me through the chill of New York!
Here is to great vacations and warmer weather! Has spring arrived in your neck of the woods yet? Share your thoughts and connect with me on
