It's been such a long time since I wrote my last blog! Between these years, I have grown and learnt, traveled that I now feel like I am ready to share 2.0 version of me now! I think I needed this time heal, grow and learn more about myself.
I lost my grandmother in December 2017 which was the most heartbreaking thing I have experienced till date. She was my anchor and a true confidante all throughout my life! Sharing one of our "moments below. Thankfully, I was in India and reached within a few hours to bid her my final adieu
So, You also might wonder what happened in the past couple years while I was away.... I took Yoga teacher training inan Ashram,Practiced meditation,Taught Yoga to young and old alike in the Bay Area, Moved to India for a year where I am currently writing this post from! Also, Healed myself from a fatal knee injury and several emotional roller coasters in between & finally got my Cosmetology License after H4-EAD law was passed and I could give my state board! I am going to be vulnerable in my posts as I share pieces of my life that has helped me steer my life towards being better than what it was yesterday in hopes of adding value to your life!
In this particular post, I am sharing "My Home". The Home where I have made several memories before we moved to India on a sabbatical.
This is the place where I made many memories with my boys! It was a small patio and everything here was mainly bought off Craigslist and DIY'd except the swing that I picked from Hayneedle. It was my happy place during spring and summer and even on winter nights where I decorated the Christmas tree and relished melted chocolate and smores!
Here's a better overview of the space! A place to wind down with a cup of relaxing tea with your spouse. The twinkle lights lit across the space enlivens the space even further at night! I have had neighbors/passerby ask me if they can peep into my patio and get similar ideas to bring similar warmth to their home! As,always happy to share.
Moving on to the Living area!
One of my most cherished pieces of furniture is my uber comfy colorful couch from Crate & Barrel! It's is not only a statement piece that totally brightens up my living space but also bring rest of the family to laze around on a lazy weekend watching Netflix! Accessorized with sunflower pillows from TJmaxx and Ikea! Pretty minimalistic according to my standards.
Last, but not the least is my Beloved Bedroom that is my oasis of Peace and Calm!
Piece by Piece everything pictured in this room came together! I needed a space to work and relax and I did not have a special "home office" like I do in India right now... So I used a clear chair from World Market to make it appear more seamless and clutter free. Adding a couple more pictures of the room below.
Feel free to ask me any questions in the comments below.
Already, feeling nostalgic, But I know I needed to upgrade my current bedroom in India and bring it to a similar level ( Future blog post perhaps ? ) Also, the other the side has my little woman cave where I unleash my creativity in Makeup artistry!
I feel that whenever in Life, If I am uninspired, I look around my sorroundings, If it is clean and orderly, My mind immediately becomes much more at ease and restores a sense of calm. I feel like our physical space have a lot to do with our inner state. I encourage you to take care of both of them.
