My Gratitude list for May 2018

I am late to the party of celebrating 'Gratitude' this time. The reason is valid though :-)

Travel to India:
I was excited about my India trip and I traveled in the last week of May. Planning, shopping, packing, weighing the luggage and managing kids for the long travel - everything has been fun. I took a blogging break and so, couldn't write anything for some time. Meeting the parents and in-laws after 2 years created some guilt in my heart too. I felt like I have missed the family time and affection and now I am afraid that my vacation will end soon even though I have more than a month to spend time with family. I feel that I should visit India every year.

I am very grateful to my close family, friends, and well-wishers whose affection didn't reduce at all due to distance. 

I have never been a fan of shopping but shopping for family members in India is different. Since I don't usually spend hours on shopping, I planned ahead, decided on gifts and completed the task in chunks. I am grateful to my spouse and kids who supported me to make this task easier. 

Meeting close family:
Of course, I have to brag about this. I am on cloud nine to meet my close family. Roaming in the streets of Hyderabad made me remember many happy moments. The love and affection of the family members brought tears too. I am enjoying to the full extent.

I am very grateful that I could take some rest and enjoy my "No cooking " days. I will have my precious more "No-cooking days" in the coming months as well. I am getting a lot of help from my parents too in managing kids. A fun and relaxing family time!

My New Phone:
I got an amazing new phone - Samsung Galaxy S9. This wonderful purple phone is a gift from my husband. I didn't have much time to select a phone but I was 100% convinced that I will like Samsung only. I was using Galaxy S6 so far and I love the camera and the ease of usability. My S9 is looking great with better storage, very good front and rear camera and stylish look.
