Hello?  It’s me…

…I’ve been gone for a while but not intentionalllllllllllly!

You guys!  I unintentionally checked out most of last week and this weekend.  I was looking at my Instagram profile this morning and realized that I haven’t posted any new pictures since London.  The only social medial channel I’ve been active on is Snapchat (@myinnershakti).  Life lately has been lots of fun but not picture perfect.  And honestly I’m trying to be more present and in the moment which doesn’t lend itself to snapping lots of pictures and posting updates [hence the lack of pictures in this post!].

I shared in a previous post that my sister was flying down to visit us in St. Pete last week.  She got in on Monday evening, and it was fun and giggles the whole time!  We ate a LOT of good food, watched movies, explored our neighborhood, worked out, etc.

This visit was extra special for me because it’s likely the last time she’ll be staying with us before the wedding.  And she wasn’t consumed with school/work stuff making this visit stress free and really relaxing.

On Friday afternoon, the three of us packed up the car and drove to Atlanta.  We told my in laws that we were driving up on Saturday morning because we wanted to surprise them.  They were so confused (and happy) when we showed up on their doorstep on Friday night!

Our weekend highlights included more good food (via my MIL), a nice long run with my sister, Bajirao Mastani, and a dinner party.

I’m OBSESSED with this little dog.  I want one!

This is the first time I’ve spent an entire week at just my in laws house.  My parents are still in India, and while I miss them a lot, it’s nice to stay put and not think about splitting our time.

We’ll be in Atlanta through next Sunday morning.  We plan to squeeze in as much family time as possible as well as a few visits with friends.  NYE will likely be spent playing games at home with my in laws, BIL, and his girlfriend.  I also have my friend Monica’s baby shower on Saturday in Augusta – can’t wait to celebrate her and her little princess!

Well, that’s all for now!  I hope your holidays have been amazing so far!  I’ll be back later this week with some fun posts. 🙂

  1. Welcome back!!! I think it’s kind of nice to disconnect sometimes 🙂 This was my first christmas with my in laws and not my parents, but they’re so welcoming, it was fun! It sounds like you had a good time, too! 🙂

  2. I totally feel you on the disconnecting- it’s so necessary sometimes for the sake of your sanity and really just being able to be present in the moment! Have a blast with your in-laws this week–> love the sound of your NYE plans! I’m still in the midst of figuring out mine :)!
