Looking Back

"The past is a good place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there."  ~Author Unknown

Can you believe.....half the year is already over. We will be stepping into the remaining 6 months of the year 2011 on the 1st of July. So how has the year been so far? Did you do some (if not all) of your New Year Resolutions? Or did you at least try?
It is time to take out the list we prepared under the title "My New Year Resolution". If you don't have can always make one now. Resolutions can be made any time of the year (this line is borrowed from my sister) go ahead and make one if you hadn't.

Pretty Women!!

"You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen.  But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing."  ~Marie Stopes

When you become a mom there is one thing that you tend to neglect and that is your looks. If you are a well organized mother who has time to put on clean clothes, makeup and look like a million bucks then please do send me your tips on how you do it. But as of now I have a few of my own which being lazy as I am I manage to follow some how on most days.

My Son's Dad!!

"It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons."  ~Johann Schiller

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear 'Father's Day'? For most of us we recall our dad and remember that this day we should wish him or gift him and make it special for him in some way for being a great dad. But what about my son's Dad? He too is a DAD and as a wife I think I need to spare some though about this Dad too.

Making Traditions

"Family traditions counter alienation and confusion. They help us define who we are; they provide something steady, reliable and safe in a confusing world. "~  Susan Lieberman

I read a nice post from Prerna of 'The MOM Writes' on having family traditions that will make life 'as a family' special.(Read Prerna's Post).
This got me we (our threesome) have a family tradition or traditions? How or where should I start? Did we have family tradition before when I was a kid? Ok! my mind works like that....crazy right.....but when you read nice stuff you will think about it right? So after some pondering I decided that I should have family traditions too. But what I didn't realize then was that I already have some of my own.

Make your Bed

"Your bed in the bedroom is what the sink is to your kitchen."~ Kelly (from FLYLady).

My bed is my favorite spot in my room. It has been so for a very long time. In my college days my hostel bed served as a multifunctional unit. Apart from sleeping I used to study, read, draw, write, pray, play, dine and relax on it. So you see I have a soft corner for my bed....and I still do. Today I will tell you a little (too much) about making your bed. The why? the how? and the why not!!

Gifts for Dad

"A hug is a great gift - one size fits all, and it's easy to exchange."  ~Author Unknown

I love giving gifts to people and receiving them too. I am quite good at selecting gifts for women....I hardly take time to select gifts for my girl friends, my sister, cousins, mother.....or any lady who I have known for a while. But when it comes to the men....I have to admit I am pathetic (or so I feel). I get confused, I don't know if what I get will be valued, liked or if it is the right choice. 
What do you do when you want to gift a man? A special you dad?
In today's post I will be telling you a little about what I would and would not gift my dad.

D for Daddy!!

"A father is always making his baby into a little woman.  And when she is a woman he turns her back again."  ~Enid Bagnold

June is a very special month for me.....from a religious point June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and even though I am not much of a religious person I do have a special relationship with my Jesus. Apart from that we have the Father's Day falling in this month too and last but not the least my dad's birthday also happens to be in this month. June for me is thus a very special month. As you all might have already guessed today's post is dedicated to my dad.
