Feminine March

I was so busy yesterday that didn't post anything, though it was a birthday of my always young Mum. It's been so many years that I'm not able to be there with her, same as to be with my Dad on his birthday. But  those we love are always in our heart and on our mind. 
Happy birthday Mum, you are my love and my strength and support! I'm so grateful that you brought me up a strong and independent girl. I'm grateful  that you always respect my choices, including the one to live in India, far from you, I know. So I wish you and Dad health and love... The latter we, your children, always are ready to give you. 
My parents loved India a lot during their first visit, and they dream of the day they come here again and see more of this country. I'm grateful they support our marriage too and love my D so much, and call him their son :)
Feminine March - it was always a month of the first sprinkles of the Spring after a long winter. The month my Mum was born just before International Women's Day, which is today, on the 8th of March. I remember first Spring flower sold in the markets, everyone was gifting them to their women, be them their colleagues, mothers, daughters, grandmothers. A great day to show your love to those who gave you life and celebrate womanhood.
So I wish you all, my dear female readers, a happy Women's day, filled with love of your close ones, your men, and your children.
Here is my Mum in Agra two years ago :) Cute Mum in white top, I love you! And here are the flowers from my parent's dacha, my favorite marigolds, for you, dear friends.

Happy International Women's Day! Shine on!

  3. Happy women's day to you and belated Happy birthday to your mum!:)
    I had been to Taj some 4 years back. I have also seen its replica in Aurangabad known as ' Biwi ka makabara' . It is smaller than Taj but has the same architecture.

  13. Hi Anna, I loved seeing the photos of you and your lovely family. It's so nice to put a face with the name. :) We loved visiting India -- several years ago now, and hope to go back some day soon. My husband lived there and in Pakistan in the 70's and there are still places he would like to see. Happy belated to your mom and happy women's day to you. Best wishes always, Tammy
