I spy RED! :)

 

Hello Beautiful!

It’s that time of the year where all you see are hearts, hearts and more hearts! Small hearts, big hearts, pink hearts, red hearts, glittery hearts, matte hearts. An extra special day designed just to celebrate love! Yes, it’s Valentine day! Back when I was younger, we used to play these little games where the entire class was given this color code:

  • Red: You have a Valentine and you’re in “looooooove”!

Before I begin, thank YOU for being here. This is going to be a fairly long post! You might want to stock up on some hot chocolate and cookies! πŸ™‚

Last year brought on many many changes in my life, mostly positive but some did not look as bright. Sigh! I started a new phase of life with someone I’m completely in love with (happy happy)! Left behind my family, my doggies and my friends to move to Beantown (Boston!) from Bangalore in May and boy, was Boston beautiful when I first saw her. Beautiful Boston, forever and for always!
