"Take me back to Renfrew Valley 
Where the Bonnechere winds away 
Through the perfumed fields of clover
 And the scent of new-mown hay;"

Feeling kind of nostalgic today! Nostalgic for 2011! I know this is weird! It’s already 10th of Jan and I am still talking about 2011.Yes…I am …coz I am weird… I am moody… I am an emotional fool! But who cares!!

This is the year in which I became wife, I became life partner, I became cook, I became home maker!!
….even…Daughter in law—sister in law – and the list continues!!

This is the year when I saw my parents last time on march 1st ! (hope to see them next month again!!)…o yes I am not talking about skype! …And so….this is the year of Vonage and Skype ! 3 cheers for them!

This is the year when I came to USA for the first time …and that also with my husband! And yes also after 10 days of our marriage! Is this my dream honeymoon which is still continuing?? !! Ummm…may be may be not!!

This is the year in which I went to my office only for 2 months! …first time after getting into professional life ! Did/do I like it….of course not! But being on H4 visa I do not have work permit in US! So what !?!...it was my resolution that I will be with my husband for this whole year …at least!!

This is the year in which me and Avijit ( my husband u know) was in same continent(not like 2010…me in India/he in USA)…same state…same city(not like 2006-10…me in Kolkata/he in Bhubaneswar)…same community….OMG…same apartment…even , same room too!! Oops …so much for “us”…how did we manage ?!?

This is the year in which I saw not-so- friendly behavior of some my close friends. And bla bla bla…which I should  not talking about here….not for them…for me ofcourse…they are not that important u know…so……should I delete them from my friend list ? Aahhhh….not fromFaceBook …from my life actually! What you say ?
Also, this is the year in which I met few precious friend of my life…hope to be with them forever!

And also…I started blogging this year…which is my latest passion and hope will be through this year!!

Below are my honeymoon destinations of 2011…yes there are many…coz it was not honeymoon you see…it was/is long extended honeymoon!
March – Connecticut (First time in USA and I live here )
April – Boston
May- New Heaven (CT) & Rhode Island
July– Niagara Falls
August- Long Island
October – New York City and New Jersey
December- New York City, again!

2011, you became most important chapter of my life…will always cherish you!!
Love you!
