The thing I absolutely love about my relationship with Vishnu (and always have) is that I can be myself around him 100% of the time.  I’m never ridiculed or judged for acting goofy or saying something silly.  And the same goes for him.  I actually love goofy Vishnu – always cracks me up!



So the other night, I brought up a topic that we’ve discussed a few times before – soul mates.



You see, I’m a pretty spiritual person.  On the other hand, a lot of Vishnu’s beliefs are rooted in scientific theory.  Not all, but some.  Even with our different views, we agree on a lot, and at the very least, we agree to disagree.



I honestly didn’t know what would come of this conversation but here’s how it went…


P:  Do you believe in soul mates?
V:  …yes (as he shrugs his shoulders a little)
P:  Do you think we’re soul mates?
V:  …yes (as he looks at me with an uncomfortable look on his face)
P:  Well, I honestly believe we are.  I don’t know what it is but I feel connected to you…always have.  Know what I mean?
V:  I feel connected to you too, Par.
P:  No, I’m talking about the kind of connection that links us together for eternity!!  You’re stuck with me, babe!  I’ll hunt you down if need be!  (Laughing)
V: (holds my hand and continues to watch TV)


This is pretty typical for us when it comes to these types of conversations.  But I still love that I can bring up the topic and state my view.



This past Saturday marked nine months of marriage for us (credit goes to my mom for actually remembering – Vishnu and I didn’t even think about it), and once again I was reminded of all the reasons why I’m one of the luckiest people in the world.  With the #1 reason being…



…I married my soul mate.

  1. Awww so cute! I don’t know if I believe in soul mates, but I do think that there isn’t anyone better for me than REB. He doesn’t believe in them and kind of acts the way V does haha. But I know we have this connection and this weird understanding where he can read my thoughts or know my actions translate to something. It’s so important to be able to be yourself around the people you love and love you!

    P.S. Love the pictures you used in this post 🙂 So beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Par! And yes, you summed it up nicely. Whatever you call it or not, it’s that connection that goes beyond just being husband and wife.

  2. This post was so beautiful and so are you (and all those FABULOUS saris!).
    I feel the same way about Tom. He lets me be 100% myself and I believe we were fated to be together. I have issues with my faith in certain areas, but I have no doubts about that.

    1. Thank you, Kacy! And yay for you and Tom – y’all sound like such a fun couple! And I’m the same way…I’m not sure about much, but when it comes to Vishnu, I know that we were meant to be together.

  3. I tend to believe we can have more than 1 soulmate, and by that I mean have this undeniable connection with someone who just gets you, and all other connections too. That would be depressing if it is just 1 person out of almost 7 billion people, right? You’re lucky to have found that. You guys make a very cute couple, and he gets you. 🙂

    1. Thanks, N! And you’re right, maybe we do have more than one. Who knows!? I just feel a super strong connection to Vishnu that’s been there since I first met him. As silly as it sounds, it’s like our souls were meant to be together.

  4. Awwww.. That is so cute! Loved the pics too. And i love how moms remember these sort of things. I would never think about a 9 month anniversary. You guys are super cute together. Loved the pics.

  5. Very beautiful pictures! I also believe in soulmates, although I believe we have several that we will one day be lucky enough to run into one.
