Love is waking up to a scarlet hue


It's been long.

A new job, new perspectives, plenty to catch up on... and the blog suffers.

But finally there is peace in the mind, there is happiness in the heart. There always was. But for now this feels better.

I still recall writing the last valentine post, and here I am, a few days later, writing another one. Or is it really a year later? Such is the way I am riding on time.

It's been a lovely day. My man made me breakfast. Yes, it's something to gloat about after days of slaving away. The maid's on long leave and forgotten to come back. The usual surprise flowers woke me up. I got lovely additions to the wardrobe.

And finally, a lovely dinner, wearing new clothes from head to toe. Must admit I turned quite a few heads as I walked.

Coming up in the elevator, I sighed and planted a sleepy kiss on hubby. "Another valentine's day over... it's been lovely..."

"Ya, baby... hey what's this? OH MY GOD! It's the price tag on your shirt! You have been walking around with that thing hanging behind you!!!"

Stone: :) How you doing?

Abhishek: He couldn't believe I was so careless!

pixel8: Yup, you are right!

chakra: Thanks. I was wondering if I became a beauty overnight.

atul: Thanks and are you suggesting I am giving Govinda competition? I think he's an amazing actor.

sheriff: Hey thanks. The tag's off now, and with my memory I will probably forget it next year and repeat it again.

Ardra: Hehehe...! So glad to find another woman doing the same thing.

Alapana: Hey how have you been? Thanks for the wishes. You have 'monogrammed' clothes? Wow! As a kid, I always wanted a tshirt with my name on it because my friend Chetan had one.

Aditi: Really? Thanks thanks! Others are saying, "how stupid, how dumb"!

Swathi: How goes life in foreign?

Melody: Would you? My office colleagues think me strange as I think a big deal about romance.

paddy: I am not giving reasons, just stating the sequence of events :)

venkat (o): Thanks for pointing this out. You have hereby been rechristened venkat (O) on my blog. :)
