Mother cow with her baby in Sonipat, India


In honor of Mother's Day today, I want to share with you a wonderful video of a beautiful mother cow nursing her baby in the streets of Sonipat, India. Taken in the early hours of the morning, late into the night - cows in India are treated with the utmost respect. This is one of the most precious things you will ever see in your life.

Christmas at the PPG Place in Pittsburgh

The holidays are my favorite time of the year and what better way to enjoy than in the Steel City, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As you are aware, I am visiting my boyfriend Joe who I have known for over 15 years. When it comes to Joe, there is never a dull moment, as he and I always have great times. And today, we had a blast going hanging out in Pittsburgh. We decided to head to the PPG Place to enjoy some holiday fun. Here are some great photos and glimpse of what the holidays are like here in Steeler country. 


The day started with here. This shining yet very stunning immaculate building is home of the Winter Garden and the Pittsburgh Ice Skating Rink provided by MassMutual. The first time I saw PPG Place, it was back in  the Fall of 1999 when I started college. 

Other photos from PPG Place today: 








Overall it was a great day. Happy Holidays!

2013: Farmer's Market in Pittsburgh, PA

Today I decided to go to the Farmer's Market with Joe in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a vegetarian of many years, I truly appreciate Farmer's Markets because I love clean, healthy food. 

When it comes to Farmer's Markets, I find some of the best produce and dairy money can buy, as most of things cannot be found in your local grocery store. Pittsburgh is a big city. Sure there are many cities that are bigger in the United States, but it is one of the cleanest places. The Farmer's Markets here are modestly big and offer some of the best food you can buy. 

Here are some candids from today's Farmer's Market in Pittsburgh, PA:









The Farmer's Market here in the steel city give a lot of samples, which really help. And as a cheese connoisseur, of course I always find myself splurging a little. It also helps too that Joe also loves cheese. Needless to say, it was a very fun day, as it always is hanging out with my boyfriend.

Welcome to Yellowstone National Park 2012


Yellowstone is such a fascinating place. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit, I truly recommend visiting today. You will never see a place like this ever in your lifetime.

I spent the entire day yesterday at Yellowstone

I truly apologize for not keeping you as updated as I should be. Life does get busy, however; in the end, I should always include you in my life. So, as I am off for a few days from work, I decided to take a trip to Yellowstone National Park yesterday. 

I entered the park via West Yellowstone, where they held their "crazy day" event which was manifested with great deals on souvenirs, as well as, food and other fun. I also managed to run into friends and acquaintances when walking through the areas. Despite being relatively scorching hot, I had a great time. 

I didn't see everything (which is truly impossible for just a one-day-trip), but managed to see the things that I wanted to see for quite a while including the Steamboat Geyser, the largest active geyser in the world and at Yellowstone. I am getting a new laptop, so I will post pictures soon. In the mean time, I hope you are doing great and I promise that I will do my best to blog more.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and day.
