Events, Awards and some Fun

Hello my dear friends..

Yes, i am popping in again today! What a great day right?

This post is a personal one, i wanted to NOT be lazy and also spread some blogger love. Awards are a special way of telling bloggers that they are read about, waited for and inspired from. Sometimes money and gifts cannot buy life's little treasures like making someone happy with a kind word, a sweet gesture or a pat on the back..

So without much ado i am going to carry on the rules of the Liebster Blog Award i had received from the lovely Anna of Hindustanka's Sunny Days and also from dear Garden Chef.
