    love the fact that you are so regular with yoga Parul. And the general up feeling of your post, makes me happy for you. I had a busy May and have been late to the gratitude link. Wish you a very happy June and enjoyable moments with parents.

  2. Glad to hear May was good for you. So much to be grateful for. May was a bit crappy for me and I suspect June won’t be any easier. Who is Junie btw?

      Take the time you need. Hugs!
      My apartment guard has a pet, Junie. I live on the 2nd floor and he with his family and Junie live on the ground floor. She is such a sweetie!

    Wow I loved your post dear; especially the cycling team reminded me of how I enjoyed borrowing cycle and secretly riding in the neighbourhood as I was not allowed in my growing up years. The cake looks very tempting and nice to know that May was peaceful and you have spent time, reading, yoga and workout. I took a short break for a while away from home and am glad to get back to my routine… soon I will get back to walking and yoga, wishing you a blessed June and happy time with your parents.

    This was such a happy post, Parul. I love reading these kinds of posts as it spreads a good feeling on to the readers as well. Great going with yoga and cycling. You are right, health and fitness is an addiction once you start enjoying your workout. I do yoga and some dance workouts these days. As Kanna is having his summer holidays we both dance together and the baby enjoys watching us busting the moves. When I’m too tired dancing is the first thing I do to garner some energy. Like a painkiller giving relief for a few hours, working out gives me energy enough to go on for a few hours.

    It sounded like a wonderful May for you, Parul. Good on you for getting fit and also embracing change at work. New perspectives and new plans often bring out the productive side in us. Your healthy cake looks amazing. I want a slice 😀 May was amazing for me – it was my birthday, work was great, went to a concert, and looking at other work-related development opportunities too. Hopefully it works out but if not, I am glad I tried. Wishing you a wonderful June 🙂

      Thank you Mabel. Come over to India, Mabel. I will get you a big cake and pack some for you too 🙂
      Yes, trying is the most important thing. Have a good June!

    I love reading these kinds of posts! It definitely motivates me to reflect and find things I’m thankful for, no matter how simple it might be. 🙂

    Such a happy, healthy post this is 🙂

    I managed to read five books in May, take health seriously and look at like a new way. Look’s like May’s been awesome for you too.

    Happy belated love anniversary. You can always celebrate it later. More grander. I’d like to meet Junie one day 🙂

  10. Health is all about routine and staying committed. And after a point of time it does become an addiction.. Great Going PArul!!!

  11. Lovely lively post! Happy to know you had such a wonderful May. It is indeed great to have friends and family nudging you and nurturing you. Stay blessed.

    How nice to stick to a fitness routine. May for me was hot and busy tying up loose ends before travelling .

  14. Glad to see so many highlights… personally, May wasn’t too good for me but hope to turn it around with June in some form or the other. Need to find some motivation to start exercising, I guess.

  15. So happy to see such a joyous post, Parul 🙂 Workouts are fun when you have a team to motivate you and I am glad you have such a good one. Your post this time is truly ‘happiness and food’ 😀

    So good about the books reading, isn’t it? I wish we all made time to read more. It would help us as well. Congrats on 11 years of togetherness. May it only become better as the years roll by. Have a lovely June!

    Congrats on 11 years, wish you many many more years of blissfulness and joy! Cheers

    Hi, loved reading your gratitude list…reading books and working out are two things even I miss if I do not do it for a long time…gratitude lists are a great way to stay positive and happy in life. Loved reading it

    It’s lovely to know you had a wonderful May, Parul. Well done for keeping to your routines and achieving your goals! It can be a tremendous boost to the morale when one does that. I’d like that for myself too. Hasn’t happened for me during this month as it has been a mixed one. Wishing June turns out as super or even better for you. As for me, I’d love to get back to getting back into my writing groove and settling into my work routine, finally.

  19. Junie? Who’s Junie, Parul? (Fingers crossed to hear that you and VT are now pet parents!)

  20. Such a wonderful May, Parul. I always love to know about your work. It nudges me in some way to keep at it. I hope you have a wonderful June with your parents.
    As for me, May was hectic but not complaints. On the work front, I’ve taken on a new portfolio and it’s challenging but I think I enjoy it too. Reading has not been at the pace I would have liked but that’s okay. Looking for a better June in terms of reading. S and I took a day off and went for a movie after 6 months and that was one of the best, laid back days of May which I loved.
    Oh and happy anniversary 🙂 With time the comfort in a relationship is the best aspect about it.

  21. Rachna says:

    That is a blessed May for you, Parul. A big yay to your fitness routine. You did so well! Happy to hear about your work, team, love Anniversary and of course book reading. Junie is a dog? I know exactly what you mean about a post blessing your life. I know your June will be wonderful after all parents are coming over.

  22. Ramya says:

    More me time deserves celebration. Good for you. May is positive for ne too with many books, library visits, gardening and a family vacation.
