Sparkle #135: Amazing Waffles at Virginia Beach

I have mentioned a couple of times how much I love fall and winter. I am also equally fond of spring! However, I don’t like the hot season much. But the one thing I do love about summer is the beach. If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I had a fabulous beach vacation at Virginia Beach in May this year. It was the perfect weekend getaway with my wonderful sister, brother in law and amazing niece. My super smart niece has her own blog and she even wrote a post about our trip here! I know I have promised you…

Week 39: Dragon Tales

Title: Dragon Tales Location: South Extension, Delhi, India Date: 27 September 2015 “The Dragon thunders in the sky with the sound of compassion that awakens us from delusion and increases what we can know through hearing. Dragons have the power of complete communication. Just as we do not see sound, we do not see dragons – at least not usually. Displaying a dragon banner is said to protect one from slander and enhances one’s reputation. It’s main quality is power, dominance over the sea, and the water element.” Source: View on Buddhism

Sparkle #122: Dr. Seuss Quotes

Happy Monday bright people! I am back after another week of traveling, and cannot wait to share vignettes and stories from my trip with you. Travel last week was focused on learning and development, as I took time off from work to attend a soft skills training. The training was geared towards introspection and cultivating awareness of different personality types – our own as well as others. My top takeaways from the sessions – be mindful, listen more, respect time and do more of what makes you happy! But let’s save more on this for another post and get back to sparkly Mondays on the blog! I am feeling super charged…

We Will See You Next Week!

Happy Monday all you beautiful people! If you have been reading this space, you know by now how much I love to travel. I am lucky that I get to do it often, sometimes for work and sometimes for leisure. While each trip I take might not end up being fun, it almost always offers it’s own adventures and learnings! This week, I am off again for some business travel within the country. It’s a short trip packed with lots of work, but I am sure I will have exciting stories to share with you once I return this weekend! As much as I…
