I don’t really know what made me come here after all this time. In fact, with the way my 2013 has been, I’d almost forgotten that I even own a blog. I happened to come across another WordPress article, and about fifty minutes of browsing through the travelogues and ‘guesstination’ photos, I realised just how much I missed writing. There’s still another forty eight days to go before New Year’s Eve, but I’ve already made my resolution – I’m not abandoning SeamlessStyle.
My 2013 has been blessed – I’ve gone on five to six holidays, met some incredible people, and crossed some important career milestones. But all that’s for another day. Today’s post is dedicated to my beautiful mummy (I might be 23 but that doesn’t mean I have a mature /adult way of addressing my mother) who turns 50 today.
For the first time in 12 years, the whole family is back in Bangalore, India. We spent the weekend in Bandipur, a small town around 200 km from Bangalore, well known for its peace and quiet (as well as the wildlife safari. Not something you’d associate with peace and quiet, but that’s how it is). The safari was fun – the highlight was a baby elephant, just one month old, following the mother around and not daring to step out of her shadows. How adorable! And how fitting.
We’re not the type who do grand celebrations. Being Bangalorean has something to do with that, I think. So this is how the day panned out – late breakfast in bed, chocolate forest cake, a volunteering session at the local blind school, an Indian takeaway of her two favorite dishes, and an old-time Bollywood movie.
Below are some of my favourite memories with my mummy. Happy birthday!
