Well there is less than a week until it’s time to leave for India. I’m so happy! I got the chance to spend time with my family and best friend. We went to the Kansas City River Market, had coconut water, sugar cane juice and fresh smoothies. We also went shopping at a local Indian grocery store, where I helped everyone buy something and we got some samosas. I was shopping for bindis there. My favorite kind being the jeweled bindi, but to my pleasant surprise, I also found these normal bindis which are even harder to find here. (Pictured above)
After that, we had an early dinner at our local Indian restaurant, Korma Sutra. One important member couldn’t make it to the occasion, a good friend since childhood, but to my surprise she sent some of my favorite treats and a sweet note. ♥
I’m so happy my friends and family can still be so loving and supportive, even when I have had little or no time to spend with them.
People are so generous. Before I left, fellow blogger Nothing Is Exotic sent me a few books to read, after expressing my desire to read Dreaming in Hindi. Which due to work, I have yet to read. I’m saving it for the long plane ride. 😀
Last week I received a donation from a reader, and several gifts from my friends and family. Thank you so much! I’m writing to share my world with you, and I can barely express how much it means that you are, in turn, showing your support. Finally, if you haven’t seen it, Lauren from English Wife, Indian Life has shared my story on her website. It’s very kind of her to share my story. It has helped people on a similar journey find a story they can relate to, and ultimately touched the hearts of her readers and followers. See my story here, and while you’re at it, visit my friend Larissa’s story.
For everyone reading, everyone sharing, everyone cheering me on as I live my dreams, everyone asking questions or even silently supporting me… To everyone supportive of me and DN’s love story… Thank you!
