Had a quick sit down with the boss lady after today’s @wendyshow
! She play too much! LOL! Take a look!
While summer holidays and sunny 🌞 weather are finished for the majority of us, this hasn’t stopped us from planning ahead to 2019. What destinations are on your bucket list for 2019? #FamilyFLY
💥 rare sighting of me, out in public 💥
Almost every other night at bedtime he tells me that he misses Disneyland 💜
When he’s watching the Halloween parade and I’m doing a secret photo shoot ☺️
Happy Birthday to the guy who lets me warm my cold feet under his legs at night, who brings me Biryani as comfort food when he knows I’ve had a rough day, who never complains about taking care of his family, even if he’s stressed out about deadlines, who is always present & always positive. Has never disrespected a single woman in his life and treats me like an equal , yet makes me believe I am more capable than anyone else! Who takes the time to edit my poetry when I’m scrambling to finish a piece two minutes before performing it!
Yeah, he does a lot for us , especially me and I don’t know any other man like him and I don’t know how to be like him.
Here is to trying harder and appreciating this FINE human! .

I knew from the moment I decided to study abroad things would never be the same. I met my beautiful wife. I made countless friendships with people from different backgrounds. And, I experienced enough beautifulmemories to last a lifetime. This didn’t happen by accident, it was written. What’s one life changing thing that’s happened to you while traveling?
My two year old found a broken toy and brought it over to me to state the obvious- “mommy, it’s broken”, he said. I looked at it, half paying attention and replied, “ Yes baby it IS broken. To my surprise and not realizing how much he picks up from me, he replied “Mommy , I fix it? “
No baby. Not everything that is broken needs to fixed by you.
Lessons keep repeating themselves until you learn from them and this time I am finally learning to let this sit with me and let go. ▪️I’m releasing the need to pour into others MY precious energy to no return ▪️I’m releasing the misconception that when genuine love is rejected, by those who only wish to take, then I don’t need to do anything more. I am not lacking, they are. ▪️It is possible to fill our lives with others who give as much as we do. We just need to make sure we recognize who they are and let them in, keeping the rest out. ▪️It is okay for some people to transit through our lives, not all relationships need to be long term, we cut our losses and move on. ▪️I am the most genuine person I personally know, I and the people who love me are enough. ▪️Our time here is too short. We need to make sure we live authentically, love without an agenda, be intentional with our company and make everyday memories.
Here is to the coming of a new year, family, the anticipation of going back home to India in a few weeks , loving without conditions and accepting oneself.

Embarrassed that the last time I washed her was mid-August 🤦🏾♂️... Took my time today and washed her and waxed her... 2 hours later she was pretty again 😊... Don’t think I ever went that long without washing my car 😩🤦🏾♂️
It’s so important for our children to see themselves represented in the world around them 🌎. Thanks to Iyla’s school for providing her her the platform to share her #Diwali
celebrations with her reception classmates 🎉 🎊 🔥
will I ever not be inspired by mother monster, @ladygaga

diwali has been one of the most significant holidays in my life since i was a kid. it’s commonly known as the festival of lights here in america. in india, it’s lights, fireworks, prayers, family gatherings, the whole shebang!
my first trip to india with my family was during diwali. it was the craziest experience! it sounded like a war zone for the two weeks we spent there. fireworks went off at all hours of the day, people partied until the sun came up, kids skipped school - a whole celebration! i met cousins for the first time and we instantly bonded over sparklers on the rooftop. we got in trouble for lighting fireworks in the street close to cars (whoops). i had never seen my parents live it up like they did then.
after my father passed, diwali took on a different meaning for me. it’s not just “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.” it’s a reminder of the special time i spent meeting my dad’s family for the first time, them meeting my mom after nearly 20 years of my parents being together and discovering a part of myself i never knew existed. it’s a time of deep gratitude for those moments i shared with my father.
what’s an important holiday for you?
happy diwali, friends. ✨
