I’ve been married for 3 years. THREE YEARS!
It’s been pretty amazing. Often, it’s been even more amazing than I imagined it would be. Obviously, everyone has their share of fights and differences, and I am glad to report that no life-shattering discrepancies and disagreements have shown up in 3 years of co-habitation. Phew! We both seem to have settled well into our unique Couple Rhythm (everyone has them) and while we are still figuring out “how to be good at marriage” one step at a time, we’re pretty calm and content most of the year. Which is the ultimate marriage aim, isn’t it? Calm & content, honey, let’s just focus on remaining calm & content.

It was the best, and worst, 6 weeks of my life.
Let’s get the worst out of the way first. Continue reading “A New York Summer: Part 1”
My husband & I left for Singapore the next morning after breakfast. We lost a couple of hours to the time difference, so by the time we landed it was already dark. The 2 hour flight delay didn’t help either. We reached our hotel at 11.30 pm, tired and hungry. So I quickly ordered for dinner in the room, and while we unpacked for the 3rd & last time on this trip, I made it amply clear to my husband that I wouldn’t be able to (read: flat our refused to) get ready at 8 am the next morning for the city tour. It may also have had something to do with the fact that I’d visited Singapore on a family vacation many years ago, so I decided I’d rather sleep in than end the honeymoon on an exhausted note.
The next morning, Continue reading “thedelhibells: Singapore aka Honeymoon Part 4”
We landed in Sydney at 8 AM and headed straight for the hotel. The check-in was uneventful, for which I was truly grateful. Yes, we’d requested an early check-in in advance! Lesson learnt! The hotel was nice Continue reading “thedelhibells: Sydney aka Honeymoon Part 3”

Day 2 in Australia. My husband and I woke up early to get ready for a day of touring Gold Coast. We threw open the curtains, and what revealed itself was a very pretty view from our room! Continue reading “thedelhibells: Gold Coast aka Honeymoon Part 2”

I know, I know. You are expecting the Honeymoon post. I began writing this with the title “thedelhibells: Honeymoon” but the story of the first 48 hours of our honeymoon is so intimately tied up with Karva Chauth, that I can’t possibly talk about it without mentioning this first. You know me, I must give you ALL the details and so – here’s the story of my first Karva Chauth. Continue reading “thedelhibells: First Karva Chauth”
