One Month of Togetherness

Last Sunday(17/June, 2012) we celebrated our 1st month anniversary with my no bake mango cheese cake. We had lots of fun that day. He took me for a long drive to his uncles house, we also went to one of my friends house and had a nice lunch. We enjoyed a lot on that day. I still can't believe that this is our first month, it feels like yesterday we got married. But one month has passed away, time is running so fast.

I want to thank my sweet hubby for making my life so special for this whole month and  certainly he is going to do the same for the rest of years..I am really really blessed to have him as my twin soul. Thank you god for gifting him as my husband..I love you dear..

Finally We Are Married!!!

Its been over a month since I touched this blog. I miss blogging a lot. I have slowly started to catch up my food blog YUMMY TUMMY. But I am finding it difficult to post here. And finally I found some free time of mine and here I am with the wedding update. Lately I have made so many changes in my blogs, I have merged my "Colours of my life" and "Aarthi's Collection" as "Love of my Life". Because I am finding it really really difficult to maintain those two blogs. So I have converted it to one. I hope you all will continue to visit me here.

I am sure that I will update this regularly starting from now on.Ofcourse you are going to get all new updates of my newly wedded life and my sweet hubby. I am getting lots of emails from my sweet friends  to post my wedding pics as well as wedding update. So I thought to share with you all about the big day.

Early morning of the big day was like a miracle for me. I was not able to imagine that this could happen in real this soon. I was so thrilled and excited about the day. I got ready and we all left from my home to the mandapam. Everything is nicely decorated and chairs were arranged. I went into the bride's room and beautician started to show her skills on me. I was thinking and getting so scared that how I am going to handle the day,this definitely put me in the pressure.

Finally all tradition got over and the muhurtham time arrived. The moment he tied the rope around my neck, I felt like flying in the sky, getting to the roof of the mountain and shout over, yes WE ARE MARRIED. My hands were kept over his hands. I still remember how tightly he holded mine, and he told me that I won't leave this hands untill I am gone. That was so touching. I felt like holding his hands and flying all over the world. Hmm..

Its going to be a month now that we are happily married. And I am enjoying each and every moment of my life. I am still learning lot about him, which is making me quite surprised. Because till my wedding I thought that I know everything about him. But there is a lot more to know that I have thought. I am planning to celebrate our first month anniversary with a little surprise for him. I will post the updates soon.

For now I am leaving you with a couple of our wedding picture. I will post more of them in my coming post.

To Make My Little Sis Happy !!!

This is not really a post, but i wanted to share this image so badly (Read further). I used to tell my little sis that she needs to improve in taking pictures a lot..The reason is she won't focus on the object which she takes and click randomly.So the result is blur images... I think she took is so seriously and was taking pictures of each and everything...One day she came to me and showed me this image, i was really impressed with that..And i told her that she is getting better and better..She was so happy and she insisted me to post this picture in my blog and share her joy..Hence this image..

I hope that after seeing this she will be happy..

What do you think about this??

Poori masala remids me of so many memories from my childhood. Amma makes this only during weekends..And we as a litte kids will be waiting for weekends the whole week. Amma’s method of making poori is entirely different from mine. It was not the traditional one but taste so good with poori. She makes the masala little runnier, so that everyone gets a little of the gravy..

One more weird thing which she adds in all the korma is MILK..Yes, Amma adds milk in all the dishes. This gravy can be done in very less time than anyother curry.
