This weekend was nothing short of fun!

On Friday, we had dinner with Samir and Roshni (and her brother and sister-in-law).  Even more than the delicious RPM food, we really loved spending a few hours with them talking and laughing (oh the laughing!).

On Saturday, we woke up bright and early to prepare for our short trip to St. Louis.  Adarsh’s parents hosted a post-wedding ritual in the local temple and invited all of us to join them.  In short, the drive down was quick and fun.  Aek drove and I kept her company by keeping the conversation flowing. The boys slept for most of the car ride.

The religious ceremony was a little long but good.  Dinner was delicious (as was every other meal we ate).  The late night conversations and shenanigans were the best.

Before we knew it, it was Sunday and time for us to drive back to Chicago.  I drove for a couple of hours before Adarsh took over.  The drive up felt a lot longer than the drive down…probably because we were all exhausted!

Overall, our time in St. Louis was absolutely wonderful.  It was so great to spend time with everyone, including my parents, Vishnu’s parents, and my cousin who lives/works in St. Louis.

So thankful for all these wonderful human beings! 🙂

  1. Such a wonderful weekend indeed. Also, the drive down MAYBE felt shorter because AEKTA was driving in her smooth, efficient, and calming fashion… Just a theory 😛

  2. Great family photos!! Your sis’s comment below makes me laugh- the joys of having a sister ;)! I’m not sure whether you saw it on Snapchat but the best thing I had over the weekend was a warm chocolate tart with vanilla bean ice cream–> it was exactly what my raging chocolate tooth needed!

  3. I’m glad you had a fun weekend! I’m sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet! Between the sessions for work, networking, dinner and taking my coworkers to some of my favorite spots downtown, it seemed to pass by so quickly! I will absolutely be back to the city of course, and likely before the summer is up! 🙂 I hope we can meet then!!
