HAPPY ONE WEEK BLOGIVERSARY (yes, it’s a word (on Urban Dictionary)) TO ME!!!   I want to thank all of you for your support and encouragement.  It really means the world to me!  I hope you continue to follow my antics and share your thoughts and ideas because I love hearing them!  🙂

On another note, I ordered a new digital camera today (point and shoot)!!!  Guess what color it is??  BROWN!!  It matches my blog! 🙂 Vishnu (my boyfriend) is the BEST because he actually helped me find a really really really good deal (he’s the best for other reasons too, but this was just awesome)!!!

Here's my new toy!

In honor of Vishnu, here’s a pic of us in beautiful Sedona!! 🙂

So, it’s been a week since I started on this adventure, and I’ve received some really good feedback and some questions that I want to address.

1.  I’ve been told that my content and topics are great, but that I need more pictures.  I hear ya!  My favorite blogs are the ones with fun, colorful pictures.  So, as soon as my camera arrives, I will begin adding pictures to every post.  Get ready!  LOL 🙂

2.  I’ve been asked a few times about what my goal is for this blog.  Honestly, I don’t really know yet!  I want to blog about a lot of things, with the majority of the posts focusing on health, fitness, and overall well-being.  Health and fitness will be easier topics for me to blog about, but the well-being part is what I’m trying to define.  I think a strong sense of self constitutes overall well-being.  And a strong sense of self comes from giving back to the community, learning about new and interesting things, and choosing to take on positive thoughts.  For now, my hope is to blog about all of these things and integrate them into my daily posts.  How does that sound?!

3.  I’ve also been asked about the recipe section I added.  And again, I have no real plans for this either.  I know I definitely want to share some of my favorite Indian recipes that my mom and aunt have helped me adapt for the every day cook.  But other than that, I think it will host a hodge podge of recipes from a variety of different cuisines that are fun, simple, and easy to make. 🙂  I hope that helps!

4. Finally, I know that my About Me section is pretty high level, so instead of changing it, I plan on divulging more about myself as I go.  🙂

One thing that I will share about myself today is that I absolutely LOVE quotes/proverbs of all kinds!  Here is one that has really resonated with me lately:

“I cried because I had no shoes, then I met a man who had no feet,” –Indian Proverb

That’s all for today, but I promise some restaurant reviews in the near future.  Roshni and Sweeti (my BFFs from undergrad) are visiting this weekend, and they want the real Tucson experience, including lots of yummy Mexican food. 🙂

Goodnight and thanks again!
