'The City' calling...


I was born and brought up in a big city back in India and I totally am a city girl. But I guess change is the only thing constant in one's life and so here I am, in this country, living in a small town away from the hustle and bustle of the city- life!!













When I first came here I was absolutely mesmerized by the natural beauty of this small town, the serenity and the snow (since I came here in the winter and we never had snow in the city where I lived back in India) and the icing on the cake  was a warm welcome from some amazing friends here.

But, as they say, if it is too sweet it gets bitter, and so it happened to me.After a while, I was bored of the picture perfect scenario and had it not been for the wonderful friends ( who were like a family away from home to me) I would have been bored to death by now! I was tired of the quiet, picturesque landscape and my heart craved for some smoke and pollution, some dirt,some crowd and some noise- in one word I wanted to have my kinda' life!!

Well, lucky me, my husband and I got a golden opportunity to live in New York City for a year and oh boy!  what a city it is!! I felt like I was back home in my city, just that NYC is one hundred times bigger and busier and so much more amazing!!It  is, truly,the most amazing city in the world and I fell head over heels in love with it!!

But, alas, all good things must come to an end, and so ended my life in the city and I am back here in the mid west...It is not much of a regret on my part now as I believe in learning to love the place where you live, but any day, given me a choice, I would definitely choose city life over country!!(Honestly,country, to me, is so synonymous to vacation!)
As they say, you can take a girl out of the city, but you cannot take the city out of a girl!!  So 'THE CITY' keeps calling me, once in a while..........

  4. I agree you can't take the city out of the girl! I lived in Manhattan for 4 years and now I live at the Jersey shore. Luckily I'm only about an hour away from the city so I can visit often :) Have a great weekend, Juneli!

  29. I really like the plum scarf and red pants! I understand the city longing - I would get bored easily as well. Right now I live just outside Atlanta, which is great because there's plenty of beautiful photo shooting locations, but I can drive to downtown in 20 minutes!
