Peer Recognition

Peer  Its time to say thank you again.

The past few weeks have been very kind by way of recognition from fellow bloggers.

I possibly owe Rashmi of http://soulnspiritblog.com/ an apology for acknowledging it a little late. Rashmi and I go a long way and I still remember her as a chirpy bride who came to our unit. A lot of water has flown under the bridge since then and I have seen her grow personally to the delightful “Soul” that she is now. Her blog has helped me get to know her that much better and it has shown a facet of her vivacious personality that is not always evident. May you grow some more Rashmi. And thanks a ton for nominating me. I have already accepted this award once before – It can be seen here https://ripplesnreflectiontimes.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/one-lovely-blog/ Continue reading

To me,  green is the color of soothing nature which never fails to calm you … the giver of life itself.  Here are my entries to this weeks challenge on a recent family road trip to Ooty …the queen of hill stations.
