Yet another Chocolate Cake…Completing 5 years of Wedded Bliss

So, we completed 5 years of wedded bliss last week. My marriage was arranged by my parents and we got married 3 months after our engagement. And since he was working abroad, we had no opportunity to meet before the wedding. Since he was from Kerala and I was from TamilNadu, the language and the cuisine were  very new to me.  So this 5 years has been an incredibly adventurous journey of discovering each others’ likes , dislikes and also each others’ level of patience and I loved every moment of it. And I still love and I will continue to love this journey of togetherness. Happy Anniversary, Sri. Here’s to our years of togetherness, happiness along with our Big Lion , Niranjan.
