My Leading Man and I just returned from a perfectly blissful honeymoon (or “mini-moon” as he preferred to call it). We enjoyed a lovely weekend in Monterey and Carmel along California’s central coast. Super romantic, totally indulgent and thoroughly relaxing. We discovered fabulous central coast wineries, ate the best crème brule outside of Paris, perused beautiful coastal boutiques and indulged our eyes with antiques and household treasures from the world over. We enjoyed the sunshine, the ocean and the day dreams that follow being hand in hand with the one you love.
Even while minimooning, I was thinking of TNIB. My readers joined me on the road from Miss to Mrs with more encouragement and support than I ever imaged. The last few weeks I have been contemplating the future of TNIB and even solicited your help. And help you did! TNIB readers voted overwhelmingly for me to keep writing TNIB (57%) and many asked me to start a new blog (35%). Your comments, emails and personal conversations were inspiring.
Apparently, nearly 6500 hits to the blog do not lie.
You like what I have to say sooooooo I am pleased to announce that I plan to keep saying it! I will chronicle my life as a Newlywed (being a daughter in law, learning to make prontas, decorating our home, unpacking wedding gifts and dealing with all the ups and downs that are sure to make up the first year of marriage). I will also continue feature new, unique and economical twists to the typical Indian wedding. I am on the quest to change the landscape of Indian weddings from the over the top, ostentatious displays we typically see to the more personal, more elegant, simplified weddings that I love.
I hope you will continue to join me on this journey! To keep up with TNIB please either subscribe to the blog (see link on the right side of the home page), follow me on twitter @newindianbride and on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/The-New-Indian-Bride/137879446232424?ref=sgm.
As My Leading Man says, we are just getting started.
