So let me try to fill you in on some background info about the normal everyday me 🙂
My name is Meenakshi (pronounced mee-nak-shee) but if you find that tricky you can just call me Minaxi ! I am a lifetime member of Shopaholic Anonymous and cannot just go past a sale without some splurging 😛 I am also obsessed with smileys as you may have already noticed and I am really trying to tone it down as much as I can 🙂 –ah not making much progress I guess.
I am a girl (I leave it up to you to guess my age) who loves to liven up every moment of her life and goes by the motto- Live Every Moment. Laugh Every Day. Love Without Limits. And that brings me to this amazing guy, exceptionally patient, who showers me with unconditional love far beyond anything I dreamt possible even in my wildest teenage dreams 😀 – Vishnu, my dearest husband.
He puts up with all the tantrums I throw at him, this poor guy, but I love him to bits. ❤ He always pushes me to be my very best and is that someone who makes you even more of who you are. He is indeed quite a catch and how we met and fell in love and got hitched you can read it here –http://www.vishnuplusmeenakshi.in/OurStory.html (the wedding invitation website which was designed by my very own boyfriend oops hubby himself! Did I tell you he is a completely tech savvy guy as well ? )
We are from India but currently leading the expat life in the U.S. Apparently the techie decided to rev up his skills even more and decided to go for graduate studies. I absolutely love the new place and am taking a nice break from the crazy workaholic schedules which I had back in India. Oh and I also like pretending am a wannabe domestic goddess wearing cute aprons and strutting around 😉
P.S. – The truth- I cannot really cook, I clean since I have to, and to top it all I am very easily distracted. Hey but I am trying here !
I love anything and everything in PINK and ooh did I mention I just LOVE LOVE LOVE to shop ? I really think sometimes that Becky Bloomwood is my alter ego and firmly believe that “When I shop, the world gets better, and the world is better, but then it’s not, and I need to do it again.” 😀
I am crazy about Music – read singing along with half made up lyrics till I get shushed up or stared at, Movies(the best part is my hubby is also a movie freak but I don feel quite ecstatic when he gorges on my cheese popcorn :X) and ohh boy do I looove to SLEEP.I could sleep the whole day if someone did not wake me up 😛
My man and I, we both have bouts of wanderlust and just love the road trips feeling the wind in our hair, listening to our favorite albums and taking tons of photos. One of our trips to Europe have made us lust even more for new places and cultures and really hope to see more of the world and make these awesome memories. I guess you would see quite a few travel experiences and tips as well in this blog 🙂
I am a big time believer of fairy-tales and actually am living one, thanks to the man of my “dreams” as cliché as it sounds. I used to and still get mocked at for my belief in fairy tales and was told that love is hard work, not a fairytale or a storybook and the worst of all that being happily ever afters happens only in movies. But you know what, after dating for five years and being married for almost two years now (the same person indeed!), I can vouch that the happily ever afters and fairy tales are far from unattainable and non-existent as they say. We are of course still learning from all of our triumphs, scrapes, and falls -and as we do, I would like to let you in on that as well.
No, it is not an online diary which I have in mind but some candid documentation on the “colorful” aspects of all the hullabaloo tagged to married life 😉
With this blog I hope to hand you some tequila and salt when life throws you lemons! You could hopefully find some helpful takeaways, a little inspiration, and my ups and downs as a rookie wife. From time to time you might also see me scribbling on some of my cherished worldly desires 😀 Thanks a ton for stopping by, all you awesome people!
