Setting up the kitchen !!

There is a famous quote "The kitchen is the heart of a home". 

When we moved into our apartment as newly weds , the first room that was on our list to setup was the kitchen. The reason being that the Kitchen is the Most Important Room in the House.

My day begins in the kitchen with a cup of coffee. We need to prepare meals in the kitchen and sometimes even eat in the kitchen. 

So it is very important that to setup the kitchen to kick start our day smoothly. For someone like me who never knew ABC of cooking, setting a kitchen from start seeming quite overwhelming task.

But over time, with the help from my mother and mother-in-law, i realized that we can setup the kitchen if you have the basic ingredients, groceries and equipment's.

A new beginning !!

People come into our lives for a reason. We may not know what that exact reason is but once those people are in, they help in so many ways, ways that they don't know and some ways that you might be shocked to realize.  From personal experience, there couldn't be enough words to express how i feel about them entering my life, yet the only thing i can say is thank you!

Welcome to my blog, where I plan on documenting my adventures as I enter a new phase of life after marriage through the series of exciting events and challenging learnings.

Capturing the best moments of your life in photos in your writings is the best thing you can ever do.My goal is to keep the blog updated with photos and fun stories at least once week, hopefully more. 

I’m incredibly excited to start this blogging journey! I hope you enjoy my blog and join me in this new journey of life.
