Giving Thanks!!

I know it's Thanksgiving and most of you must be celebrating it with your families,loved ones and friends....

Being away from home I do miss my family and my friends back in India but over the past 2 years I've made a family of my on here.. with some lovely friends and cousins who might live a miles away but are still connected!!

This Thanksgiving we are celebrating with my sister (cousin) (Nidhi and Munish Jiju).. who just moved to the west coast and I couldn't have been happier as she is just 5 hrs away from us and we can visit them whenever we want to.. Play with my niece and nephew (Rohan and Disha) whom I love and miss dearly!!!

But before we start the celebrations and eating huge amounts of food... Me and Hubby decided to do this post together by being thankful for a number of things this year :




Life:



  • Our wonderful friends (Yuthika and Barun) for being there for us always.


  • We would like to thank Arthur Murray Studios for introducing us to one of the most fun hobbies: Ballroom dancing.


Technology:

  • We are most thankful for tablets and smart phones which our parents have finally adapted to...
  • For skype so that we can connect to our family everyday.
  • For whatsapp which made messaging and sharing pics with our family and friends sooooo much easier.
  • For Instagram which gave me new wings to show my photography talent and make new friends.
  • For the blogging world for keeping me up to date with the fashion world and giving me a new platform to share my thoughts with the world and for helping me meet like minded people I can connect to and for the amazing friendships.
  • For Google making the world searchable, accessible or Googlable.
  • For Youtube for making POP pilates, yoga videos and all kinds of workouts available at the comfort of your home.
  • For Netflix for hours and hours of in home entertainment.
  • For Pinterest giving us access and ideas for absolutely anything.
  • For Groupon that saved us money and introduced us to Ball Room Dancing, Yoga classes, Paint Ball, Trampoline arenas and lots and lots of yummy places to have gourmet food.       
  • Birtchbox for sending me samples of brands I would have never heard off let alone trying.
And the last but the most important...



Family:
  • We are thankful to our parents for giving us a good education and helping us become who we are today. 
  • For being a strong support our entire life and source of inspiration and motivation. 
  • For providing for us and teaching us valuable lessons for life. 
  • We are thankful to our brothers for being our best friends even though we sometimes ignore their advise ;) (e.g. getting my hair cut. Sorry Suki ;)).
  • We are thankful to our grandparents for teaching us some useful skills such as knitting and for all the 'masalas', 'chutneys' and all kinds of yummy stuff.
Thank you God for a beautiful home, a wonderful family, amazing friends and filling our lives with laughter and happiness. This is all one could ever ask for....

What are you thankful for today... ??? !!!
