Because it’s summer and the memories are just waiting to happen.
So it's 10th day of my year long sabbatical and to tell you frankly, I have never been busier than this before! Few told me that they will expect me to post more recipes as I will have more time on hand to cook, photograph and blog the recipes! I just smiled and looked at my lil one who was sleeping in my arms, the only quiet in our home :) Once he is up, there is no way I get to do things I please ;)
Now after all these days, there is not a moment I can call my own. But I am not complaining! I feel blessed to wake up every morning and not worry about meeting project deadlines at work and other hundred things that revolves around work. I wake up with a smile on my face and look forward to spending many happy hours with Lil Dumpling. We colour, draw, learn our numbers and letters, talk non-stop about bugs, dinosaurs, go for long walks, play hide and seek, laugh more, sing songs, read stories, make our own stories, dance silly, cook together, talk a lot, make bubbles, splash water and create many happy memories! I am eternally thankful to get this chance to relive my childhood through Lil Dumpling.
Today I am going to share with you today few snippets of our life as we enjoy the high temperature, bright sun, clear blue skies, colourful flowers, white clouds and gorgeous weather! I will come back with a recipe post which has been sitting in my draft for two weeks now. So be patient with me as I live my life little more, smile and laugh little more, make new beautiful memories and love my Lil Dumpling a lot more!

How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
~ The Eagles,
So with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
Every summer has a story.
Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.

Summertime is always the best of what might be.

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.

Sweet, sweet burn of sun and summer wind, and you my friend, my new fun thing, my summer fling.
~ K.D. Lang
Summer’s filled with breaking the rules, standing apart, ignoring your head, and following your heart.
Summer is where the girls go barefoot and their hearts are just as free as their toes.
If you are not barefoot, you’re overdressed.
It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.
~ Maud Hart Lovelace
Some of the best memories are made in flip flops.
