The Smile Makers

Sometimes it sure can be hard work To make somebody smile.” By: Shel Silverstein I’ve been smiling today, […] Continue reading →

Weird Questions Meme

(click here for a raw shot) Before I start with today’s meme, I wanted to talk about the picture.

My SL Movie Poster Challenge!

Before I start talking about today’s Monday Meme I just wanted to address something. Every week I have someone messaging me saying that what I’m doing every Monday on my blog is not a meme, it’s a blog challenge.

For you, my love is selfless…

I was listening to one of my favorite bollywood songs while working on this: mera ishq sufiyana which translates into “my love is selfless” and the rest of it is just as poetic, if not more. It’s an absolutely beautiful song. Today was the last day of school, so I’m off for the summer. However, […] Continue reading →
