Highlights of 2014 – Pictures from my life
Happy New Year!
As we get into the new year, I looked back at 2014 and realised that this has been a very eventful year. Here are the highlights of each month 🙂
I had a Chinese themed birthday party where both my and my daughter wore matching Qi Paos and posed together. Was loads of fun.
Early in Feb was my daughter’s Sport’s Day and they had a story themed sports day. Here are the girls getting ready for rabbit race. They had a crow and stone race too for their class!
March is when she graduated from play school. They had an elaborate celebration peppered with performances from students and teachers. Each child was described by a teacher and then called on stage where they were handed a graduation cap and a certificate along with a few gifts. Proud parents we were!
It was vacation time and we took a day off. A movie date in the morning for the parents and then sight seeing to Gateway, Marine Drive and Chowpatty.
My first formal blogger’s meet. This was the Dove Indiblogger meet. I met Suma and a whole lot of other beauty and lifestyle bloggers. Made new friends like Anuradha, Disha and Suman. You can read more about the Dove Indiblogger meet and see pictures of the fun filled day.
My baby started school. Proper Big School! Can you imagine how emotional I was on her first day? She looks all grown up here.
My first solo international trip. All others before this have been with family or colleagues. This trip in July was all across the world. I went first to London and then to 3 cities in the US. Met old old friends, made some new ones and left with a longing to return 🙂
The Monsoon warrants a trip to Lonavala. Does it not? Here I am goofing with my baby against a backdrop of waterfalls.
My daughter turned 4 and I threw the first kids-only party this year. It was a Chhota Bheem theme that she chose since that is her favourite cartoon. We did DYI birthday invitations, custom decor and a pinata. I had as much fun shopping and filling up the pinata as the kids had in picking the gifts 🙂 I bought Chhota Bheem party supplies online from snapdeal and gave out story books as party favors.
October was festivals, festivals and festivals! Had a fantastic Navratri with Dandiya dancing and then Diwali with the entire family aster a long time.
November started with a trip of the Orient. I spent a few days in Singapore and then in Hong Kong. This was my first time in Hong Kong and I enjoyed the trip to the fullest!
December was another month of firsts. I went to freezing Europe! Was in Germany for the first time and I experienced my first snowshower!!! I even did a travelogue post about Munich sightseeing.
