A New Years Post

“This is a new year. A new beginning. And 

things will change.” 

― Taylor Swift

Welcome to 2013. 

A totally new year, filled with new people just waiting to meet you, places ready to be explored and new opportunities.

This year is filled with so many new roads for me. 

I'm wrapping up old journeys and starting new ones that'll last a while. 

And as excited as I am, there is always a fear of the future. 

A fear of entering something so trustingly, without understanding it fully.

A fear of the new people, places and opportunities.

So much will happen this year.

Headlining this new year, 2013, are:

-Possible Europe trips
-My first year of High School
-My 8th Grade graduation
-Mom and Dad's Holy Land trip
-Visits from my grandparents

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year and a belated Merry Christmas.

Much love,

and yours.

German Fest 2012

Okay guys. Here goes..

I am sorry again.

But in between studying for my entrance exam, science fair and everything else, this blog post just seemed to get wedged in between everything.

So, in case you were wondering why this post date is the 28th of December, it's because I have more posts to write and I wanted to have them in a timely fashion.

So here it is, the long awaited, German Fest 2012

German Fest (or Christkindlmarktis held in Chicago every year, and this year we made a big day trip down there to see it.

We decided to take the train there and back and that was loads of fun. I actually didn't have my camera until after we had left the German Fest area, so that should explain the lack of photos of German things.

This is Kiren looking outside from Dad's office on the 39th floor after returning from  Christkindlmarkt in downtown Chicago

The view from the 39th floor.

 Okay, so it wasn't the most entertaining post ever, but it is a blog post!!

Love you all!!

Until next time,

Thanksgiving and My Birthday

So, I know that you all hate me for not uploading and slacking off on my blog, but I hope that you'll forgive me because I have so much stuff to tell you.


I have just lost touch with my blog in between Thanksgiving and Christmas and studying for my High School Entrance Exam. But in the next two (or maybe even three!) posts, I will chronicle everything that occured while I was absent from my blog!

So, here is the first post, THANKSGIVING and MY BIRTHDAY!!

This is Neil and Kiren eating popcorn and watching a movie on the laptop while  Mom was cleaning up. I thought they looked pretty cute, all cuddled up under the sheets!

So, Thanksgiving was held at my house this year, so we had pretty much EVERYONE at our house, which is always loads and loads of fun! The day before Thanksgiving was my birthday, so I had that to celebrate as well. 

Mom made dinner the day before Thanksgiving to celebrate my birthday, the day of Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving, so she was pretty tired afterwards! 

I made my Chocolate-Nutella Macarons for my birthday, and I took a lot of mouthwatering pictures as well!

Nutella; The filling

The macaron shells!

The finished macarons.

A few of the macaron shells didn't come out right, so I had to eat them instead!
Here's a portion of the gang that came for my birthday:

We ate Polenta Sausage Lasagna, bruschetta and blue cheese apple salad. It was so delicious! My birthday cake was Tiramisu, my favorite!

From Neil and Kiren I got a Chicago Bulls jersey that I love!

I don't have any pictures from Thanksgiving, (Don't ask me why :) but I can assure you that it was loads and loads of fun. The turkey was perfect, and we enjoyed each other's company. 

Here are some pictures of the day after afterwards:

All of us dancing to Just Dance 3!

So, I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving! Comment below on what you did!
