Anniversery & Healthy Snacking - Event & Giveaway

    It's still a miracle to realize that  she (my blog) has crossed an year!!  I am very happy for the support I have received from you guys and thanks a ton!!  My darling will continue to do her work again  :)  :)

   She has played an important role in my life!  Apart from providing an awesome company to an hopeless home-maker :) she has taught me many technical stuffs online, which otherwise would have been unknown to a lady from biology background :)  I like her and adore her a lot.  Infact, I consider her as my unborn daughter because I spend more time with her caring n fussing  with ultimate passion.  Day by day, I am seeing her grow up from an infant to today, an standing toddler.
   This growth of hers is remarkable, but, I had to admit that she had a lot of helping hand.  First three special mentions goes to Aarthi of yummy tummy fame, Swathi Iyer from Zestykitchen and Shama, my very husband.  Newly married, I used to browse through Aarthi's page, and she also became my friend.  I, even called her several times and she used to talk with me.  We shared an good bond.  She was an good initiative to me, even an role model, I presume.  Thanks Aarthi!  Swathi Iyer, helped me on technical part, though she didn't know who I am.  I can still rewind the moment, where I used to have late-night chat with her.  I love you, Swathi.  I know that somewhere in future, we will definitely meet or catch up!!  <3  <3  <3  And finally yes, credit goes to Shama too!!  His support and encouragement drew me more and more of blogging.  And to top that, he even gifted me HP  laptop, thanks a ton Shama!

   And such thanks goes on to lots and lots other viewers,  thank you to make her grow!!
