Hello, there!

Updated: Apr 23, 2020

It’s been a long long time since I wrote/posted anything on my blog and I feel so pathetic for ignoring something that holds importance as massive as this. I intend to mend my ways and be more regular at writing andddddd…. Posting.

So, there’s been a lot going on with me.

I got married. I moved to Austin. Settled into my new home. And I fell in love.

It was in January mid that my visa arrived and I moved to Austin in March. Getting a US visa is not an easy job, I tell you. Especially in the mid of all the wedding preparations, it was hell of a task and not to say an added tension. But all’s well that ends well.

There were a lot of new things to figure out, mundane chores to pick up and a different lifestyle to adapt. It took us a while but having an understanding and loving partner makes the journey worthwhile if not easy. And it was fun doing it all – learning how to cook food (on a regular basis), cleaning not just my room but my house, doing grocery and other household chores and the list goes on. I feel so liberated as I say that I enjoy doing all these things now. It might sound weird to some but yes I do. I never did them before in my life because back in India, you have more servants than family members in a well-to-do household. And the credit goes entirely to my husband who is truly my partner.

I didn’t realise when I became friends with him. Friends who share secrets, friends who bitch, friends who binge watch shows together, friends who shop and select outfits for each other, friends who disagree with each other, friends who fight and then make-up in no time, friends who look forward to doing and trying new things with each other and friends who happily accommodate and adjust to each other’s wishes.

And it’s not over yet. We still have a lot of things that we need to sort out, vacations to plan, shows to binge watch, weird things to try and journeys to embark upon. But I am no more scared and I think he isn’t either. In fact, we together are looking forward to all the surprises that life wishes to throw our way.

So turns out it’s true that it’s nice to have a partner and even more important to find just the right one for you.
