2008 was Very Special

This has been a year full of mixed situations, good and bad. The year is not ending on a high, but I am making it a point to not think about anything but the positive that has come out of this year. So I am putting in this post highlighting why this year is the most special year in my life.

This year is the year that me and my sweetheart got MARRIED!!! and for this reason alone, 2008 will always be cherished. Weddings are supposed to be a happy but tensed time. The girls side running helter-skelter, catering to the wimps and fancies of the boys side and the girl all shy and demure, anxious about her new life and the new family.

But my wedding was totally the opposite, my In-laws arranged the whole wedding, and I wanted my mom-in-law and sis-in-law to pick out stuff for me. In fact they picked out all my clothing, my jewelry everything. All I did was show up !! Fantastic.

I am blessed in so many ways, my MIL and FIL are like a second set of parents to me, and my SIL is like the sister I never had. I was so relaxed during my wedding that I was up on stage waving and blowing kisses to people who i knew, while my sweetheart was paying attention to the ceremony. I was far from being a demure bride.

Another cherished thing about 2008 is that I got to see people very very dear to me. My college buddies who I hadn't seen for 10 years, dear dear friends who have been my rocks for all these years, a very dear professor ho has been a friend and a mentor, and people I had only spoken to and had grown fond of.

Can life get any better than that? Surrounded by family and friends on the best day of your life, getting married to the love of ur life! I think not.

Let me thank everyone who has been a part of my life. I am truly thankful that you choose to be part of my life. I am truly blessed. So here is wishing you and your loved ones a very happy new year and may you be blessed with tons of love and happiness in the coming year and the many more to come.

See you all in the next year and God Bless!! Cheers!!

and then Happy New Year :D

You are a very pretty lady!

BTW.. you look pretty familiar too - very familiar! Are you from Madras?

Vidooshak said...

Am glad you confessed. I was most taken aback by the bright, jumpy bride waving at us from the stage. I urged Abha to hurry for lunch coz i was sure your ma-in-law would be calling off the wedding before we reached the basement! Luckily, your sweetheart seems as much under your spell as Abha's me. She was so cheerful at our wedding, I show her movies from the 70s to explain what I was really looking for in a woman...

Jokes apart, am sure 2009 is going to start on a happy note for you. With your personality and talent, things will fall into place soon. Smile and keep sharing!

Btw, we enjoyed meeting you on the wedding day too. Plus, it is special for me too-- I was born that day :-)
