#MerryMonday India, 2010 and 2011

Countdown previewing past Christmas vacations, in preparation for this Christmas’s reveal!

It’s the last #MerryMonday post of 2015! I would have posted this next week, but there are quite a few blog posts scheduled for next week—get excited.

I’m pretty happy to be closing #MerryMonday2015 with this one.

Episode 3, The Final Episode- INDIA


Home. A confusing word for a third culture kid like me, who was born and raised abroad. The word may mean a lot of different things and different places to me, but India is the “simple” answer I give when people as where I’m “from”. India is a huge part of my life and who I am today, and I miss it every day.

I lived in New Delhi, India for seven years: from 1997 to 2001, and 2010 till my high school graduation in 2013. Our first year back in 2010, we spent Christmas day at home with our beautifully decorated tree.

Decorating our Christmas tree is always a big day for our family. We also kind of, just really like Christmas. Our Christmas tree is always over-filled with ornaments, each with a story to tell and memories had.

Christmas 2010 was a wonderful first Christmas back home in New Delhi filled with family, a few exciting firsts, and lot of Christmas music.

The day after Christmas, we jetted off to Goa, located in Southern India and known for its beaches.

Kind of felt like an extended Christmas in the sun filled with family, some more exciting firsts, and a lot of beach Christmas trees.


2016 is going to be a big year for the blog, I have decided. There are a lot of exciting things coming in just the beginning few months of 2016! One of the new series I will be launching in 2016, is #IAmMultiLocal.

The #IAmMultiLocal series will be all about my upbringing, and the places I call home.

Get excited, because the next #MerryMonday (on a Wednesday thanks to my arrival date) will be the big reveal and an early start to a wanderful 2016.
