Happy midsummer!

No Comments

Its midsummer today in Sweden, and it weirdly feels like it doesn’t matter to me this year. I’m usually homesick today – midsummer is my favourite holiday. Maybe its because we just got back from a lot of traveling? Perhaps its all the other stuff my head is currently spinning around. I miss my family, but I do that every day. I’m weirdly feeling totally fine about missing out on the party.

I had a nice lunch with Devika and Diva today, and now I’m back at the office getting a bunch of emails out before the weekend. My inbox is unusually read/clean: is there a long weekend in India too that I’m not aware of? I’m going to check out soon – a couple of more emails and I’m calling it a day.

Other than that I’m feeling slightly off today. Anxious. I’ve made evening plans, but I’m not really feeling like doing anything. Do you also have those days? I’m sure you do. Maybe it’s because I think that I’m not interested in celebrating Swedish midsummer, but I subconsciously feel like something’s missing? Maybe I miss my mom. Maybe I’m feeling bad about something. Maybe I’m just on a low and will swing out of it in 20 minutes. Maybe, maybe.

I think I’m just homesick actually.

Happy midsummer, Swedes!



Time flies when you have fun

Today we’re celebrating one month as an engaged couple. Safe to say, its been one of the, if not THE, best month’s of my life.

So after an incredible ten days in Europe, its time to return to Bombay. We are blessed with a number of trips this year, and I’m really not complaining – that being said, I’m also a bit of a home-rat and nothing goes up against a good routine. Both Saif and I agree that although the trip has been incredible, we also can’t wait to get back to working out, working and sleeping in our own bed. I have been working while we were away, but I also need to get back to things like finalising the setup of my new company’s bank account, have in-person meetings with clients, and of course, figure out when and where our wedding is due to take place. We are set on doing it by the end of this year, but at the same time we don’t want to rush it. If any of you have experience with planning your own wedding, I would love to hear from you! I used to work in wedding planning back in New York City while I was still at Brown, but its suddenly so different when planning your own vs. someone else’s.

As you can hear, you have a lot of wedding chatter coming up. Hope you don’t mind… I promise I’ll try to keep it interesting.

Speak to you from home! I’m going to take this flight to write recommendations for London and Paris. So many of you have reached out asking for our recommendations – well, hold tight, it’s coming up soon!

Thoughts, Travel

A Sunday by the pool

Could life get much better right now? Don’t think so. I don’t think I’ve been this happy or relaxed in my entire life – I barely dare to think or say it because of the fear that I’ll jinx it or something. I feel confident, secure and happy. The last ten years have been an off and on ongoing ‘battle’, and throughout the last 6 months its almost as if the pieces have started falling into place again. Weird, but exciting. Of course I still get anxious and worry about the dumbest of things, but its got nothing up against the genuine happiness bubble I’m currently in.

We’re kicking off this Sunday by the pool at Shoreditch House. It’s 26 degrees at 11am, I’ve just worked through a bunch of emails and 69 (!) unread WhatsApp messages on my phone. This is something that’s been a main source of stress for me lately by the way. WhatsApp. I can’t delete it, but I need to find a better way to mange it so that it doesn’t give me heart palpitations. Anyway – first world problems. I’m going to go back to enjoying my late morning black coffee and my fiancé the British sun. Ha ha.

Have a beautiful Sunday everyone!
