I am a sucker for any kind of personal posts. So, when rads has this tag up on her blog, I knew I would be doing that too. The tag is to post a picture from your wedding album and write about it. Considering I love looking at my wedding pictures once in a while and have even watched my wedding video thrice in the 8 years we have been married it is no wonder I had a fun time looking through the pictures before finding one that would be ‘blog friendly’ in rad’s terms.
This picture was taken at the ‘Oonjal’ of our wedding, an hour or so before the actual wedding ceremony. As K and I sat on the swing with elders in the family taking turns to feed us milk and bananas and throw colored rice balls in all directions to ward the evil eye, I remember enjoying the moment. I also remember being anxious not to spill milk on my lovely silk saree. I remember being very conscious of K being seated by my side. I remember the heady scent of the jasmine strands that adorned the oonjal. I remember Akay standing by the side handing me tissues and reassuring me all was well. I remember being surrounded by family and friends and felt an aura of love and happiness. There is so much of positive emotion whenever I look at this picture. I think some of the happiness is evident in the way my eyes are smiling.
I’d love to see many of my blog friends take this tag. If you do, leave a comment and I will peek in to check.
