Taking a Break!

Hi Friends, We are moving to Chicago in 2 weeks so will not be blogging for I don't know how long. Will truly miss blogging and talking to you all. My Brain has constantly been thinking on Packing, cleaning, my son's new school, new place, new people, cleaning up the fridge and getting rid of frozen stuff and so much more. I am going to miss New Jersey so badly. Will miss all my friends here.

I wish you all a very Happy and prosperous Diwali! I wanted to cook and post so many different sweets for Diwali but now it is not possible. Will check all your posts once I am settled.
I will miss a lot of events too:(

Take Care and Enjoy the festivities!

Sharmi.. you will be sorely missed. All the best in your new place. Am sure you'll settle down soon.
If you think of everything to do at once it will be overwhelming.. divide and conquer. Just a little friendly advice.. :) Good luck.
Happy Diwali to you and yours.

Good luck with the move, Sharmi! Chicago is a great place (only cold in winter).

After the move is over and you've settled in, remember to ask me for a few tips of places to go and things to do :-)

The kiddo will love Navy Pier, and you will love Devon street.

TBC said...

Hey Sharmi,
Happy Diwali.
Hope you have a safe and incident-free move. Moving can be pretty stressful no matter how hard u try & plan things ahead of time. We moved a couple of months back and I went through the same thing. I'm still in the process of getting used to life here.
I am sure you'll grow to love Chicago. All the best and come back to your blog when you can.
