Bride to Be πŸ˜„ Part 1


Hello everyone,
How are you guys doing out there? How is your life, your book reading, hobbies and WordPress blog writing? Hope everyone is doing good and becoming more finer souls with the passing of each day. I have been keeping myself away from posting anything which demanded my creative time. Even this post is not anything fictional yet I felt writing few things about the prevailing things of my life.Β 
So the very first doubt for you will be what has my intro blabbering to do with the first pic. The pic says it πŸ™‚ yeah, this is my current title “Bride To Be” πŸ™‚ Being a research student it’s really tough to take theΒ decision between the profession-personal life priorities. I have been giving more weight to the first πŸ™‚ There came a stage in life where I decided to accept a mirror image for me. I guess life becomes more fun and jovial when we have a PARTNER IN CRIME πŸ˜€ A person who can sense our vibes, emotional graphs and stay patient/tolerant with us even at our worst emotional outbursts.Β 
Being women, most of us would have been in a transition state during the wedding time. It is like uprooting from one place and starting to grow in an entirely new one. Depending on mental states, everyone go through aΒ wide range of side effects due to this change in state. For me too, the scenario is same, but I am keeping that emotional phase delayed by adjusting my focus on work. My work also is at its peak.
Away from home and still managing all the “To-do Lists” from here is also tedious. Oh My God……too many things to be handled. Still tried to manage things done ok for the engagement and wedding. Making invitation cards left me exhausted for a whole day. Printed card design, soft copy designs for both of us all demanded my presence of mind and color tastes.Β 

These were the e-cards IΒ designed for both of us πŸ™‚ It’s my first time doing something like and I did enjoy designing them. I tried to do things which I could manage and do leave a signature style for our wedding πŸ™‚ I had a terrible flop time at the jewelry shop. I was really put down by the sales assistant :p In our place nowadays the ornaments are used only on certain occasions and I can’t escape from wearing them either especially on my wedding day. My routine life has been away from all these and which made my hands so stiff that the SA suggested at leastΒ now onwards please start wearing bangles πŸ˜€ :p By the time I finished selecting bangles, both my hands expressed their strong opposition with reddened skin cuts made by the edges of bangles 😦 Β 

I am an ardent fan for heavy jhumkasΒ (earrings) could finally get my hands on with a peacock motif earring pairs embellished with white stones πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚ Β This is my most favorite among my wedding shopping πŸ™‚ Being very specific in choices, I selected two sarees a golden one for the first session of ceremony and blue Kancheepuram wedding saree ( In Kerala, you could spot all the brides in either red, pink or reddish colored sarees).Β 

It’s really a pain in the ass when I have to restock my whole wardrobe now. One set for personal life at my new home and one for the workplace. I guess this was the only drawback for my bohemian lifestyle. It’s like a shape shifter between work and home life πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€ :p From floaters to sandals, from afghani pants- sleeveless tops to sarees/long tops with shawls, bare neck to gold chain – wedding ring, temporary farewell to my funky watches and nail arts, untied-uncombed messy hair to well maintained socially accepted hairstyles. Experimental recipe attempts and junk foods to typical tasty cooking (I am blessed to have my partner well expert in cooking πŸ˜‰ ) OMG….this list of external transformations seems to be never ending. Anyway, these are just slight external modifications, ultimately I am who I am. It remains unchanged πŸ™‚Β 
Am I happy? Yes, I am really happy for the very special day in my life πŸ™‚ Even though there have been several writing breaks, I will try toΒ pen down my “Bride to be” notions in the upcoming days. I will be off from work for two weeks right after Easter for engagement and wedding. I will try to do a writing series, hope to keep my word.
