Isn't she lovely!

Here it is finally - my sister's 'I Do' pictures. I'm happy for her, but it's still a weird feeling when somebody you still can't stop thinking of as your 'baby' sister is now a married woman. But looking at this picture, I see she is indeed a woman now, and she looks lovely!
Someone I know saw the above picture and exclaimed "When in the world did you get married??!" :P
The many kids in our family. Check out the encircled area, that's got to be the cutest little pair of slippers on the most adorable little pair of feet I've seen in a long time :)And I look at this picture of a Kolasib (where the wedding took place) countryside and all I can think of is how much I miss Mizoram right now. I want to walk on those tiny roads and roam the forests and breathe in that good Mizoram air. In fact, I know exactly what that countryside must smell like - fresh earth and foliage baking in the sun. The type of smell that the most expensive perfume makers will never be able to capture in a bottle. The type that makes you remember warm daddy bear hugs and soft mum hands and cute cousin feet :) I haven't missed home this badly in a long time, and I don't think I'm going to be able to wait till Christmas to get there.

Your sister does look lovely. Congrats to her and her hubby. And the path to the church looks idyllic, charming.
PS: your word verification reads DIREA, misspelt diarrhoea? hehe

diary - I'd love it if Direa was in fact the correct spelling for the word, I have never managed to spell the original right. And thanks for the compliments and wishes for the sis, I'll be sure to let her know!

Jerusha said...

Eva - Maybe I should join you in June, would be a nice way of escaping the heat and all that. Let's see, I may suddenly book a flight I feel super impulsive these days.

Rams - Everyday is my big day! :D

You do sound homesick and Christmas is a long long way. I'm feeling homesick too but no idea of where my home is.

Jerusha said...

zenstar - thank you. You seem to travel a lot so you really should make Mizoram your next destination, you won't regret it :)

Black - back in Hyd as usual :( Well, partyin in Hyd isn't so bad you should come for a visit :) Tell Rods I say hello!

mes - I know what you mean, even though it may be more shallow. But I do. Vaguely. Where is home? I wonder about that all the time.
