This is probably the concluding post of a decade, and a wonderful year, where I have learnt a lot, I have grown up from a kid to a gal to a teen to a young women from 4 feet 8 inchs to 5 feet 7 inchs from 10 years to 21 years, to a better human being, a better friend, sister, best friend, daughter and grand daughter. This is the decade that I welcome many more nieces and nephews, lost many people i loved, made many more friends who i love deeply who i adore and cant live without, fallen in and out of love, made people laugh, cry, grown up with and grown out of, from frocks to gowns, from Salwar kameezs to Chudi sets, from Bangles to bracelets, from a point and shoot to a dslr, from a no no at art to some know in art.

Cheers to everyone in my life, thanks for being a part of my life, I love you all deeply, xoxoxoxo

To my dear family if any of u see this, I love u guys a lot, you have made me from a kid to a young women in these 10 years, you have brought all happiness in my life. I cant thank you all enough for it.!

Lots of Love

Deepa
