MY FIRST AWARD -S!!!!!! It's RAINING AWARDS....(A peek into my journey)

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can not believe that I'm being appreciated with awards....

I still remember the day I started with my blogging activity.... My inspirations were several blogs, whom I visited frequently for recipes..... Eg., Mane Adige, Aayis Recipes, Veggie Platter etc., I was really impressed by comments & exchange of views & appreciations....

I'm a Leonine.... and Leos crave for appreciation..... I love to be appreciated for my work... for it's worth.... It keeps me going...motivates me to go further.....No man's perfect... but we all can try to be.... If not perfect, we would surely be able to reach a step near it... No harm.... !!!!!!

After I quit my job.... I was idle & relaxing for months...just being with my hubby every moment, cooking for him...loving him all the more....going through the success of our love story... watching my wedding snaps & videos..... etc., etc., As I went through these above mentioned blogs, a light lit "ting" & mere bhi man mein laddoo phoota..... & I thought why not?????? I would be able, tooooooo....!!!!!

So started off with it.... referring other blogs & other related info on the net.... I gave it my very much loved name.... "ASRA" which is a combo of me & my hubby's names.... ASHA + RANJIT...
Since my name was all about hope...& my achievement of that of my marriage to my Love, was all based on that...... I thought "ASRA"...ASHAON KA would be apt.

It started off as a try...which went on to be an improvisation...which is now I feel a habbit....

And Habits, seldom DIE....
You remove a H, 'a bit' is there.... You remove the A, 'bit' is still there....You remove the B now & 'it' is still there......... THAT IS THE magic of HABIT!!!!!!!!

I hope it does not turn, to be an addiction....

After starting off with my "ASRA", I was all alone with it for quite a few months...Then peeps started joining me one in 2 months, a comment in a month was more than I expected... but I still held on to it. I started loving it... And as days passed.... I started visiting peeps at their blogs & peeps started visiting me...

And here I am celebrating my first award-s.... I wanted one & Indu & Priya conferred 6 & 2, on me respectively..... I am so honoured with these kind jestures of appreciations. I wanna thank them, from the bottom of my heart..... THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It means a lot..........

I've also been appreciated by Sushma Mallya & she has shown her appreciation through an Aired 'Bare Hug'..... ;-)

Indu has also passed, an overwhelming 'Inspiration Award'..... I do not know if I inspire her or not....But for sure she has inspired me.....honoring me with my blog life's first 'Blogfare' award......
And I promise Indu, to touch another life.... by tagging a new blogger, who has just started off with her life here.....

It feels gr8 to be appreciated by the who's who of THE 'BLOGGY' WOOD!!!!!!!!!
