Easter weekend in Denver

We are heading out to Denver this evening. Short weekend break to spend Easter with Paul’s family. Denver is a cool city. And Colorado is simply gorgeous!


I woke up earlier than usual.

I think I could get used to waking up early just to enjoy the early morning sun at home.


No, seriously. I  think I would really enjoy it.



Done with the last of my packing. Clear ziplocks filled with as many under-3-oz- travel sized bottles and tubes as it can hold. If there is one thing TSA regulations and annoying checked bag fees have taught me is how to pack LIGHT. Especially for shorter trips. Huge bags with half of my closet and heavy lotion and shampoo bottles, 6 pairs of shoes, any anything else I might need… not anymore! Say hello to the new-and-improved-packer -me! Now – its just 2 pairs of footwear. AND I’m even sharing the carry-on luggage bag with Paul!  Impressive, right?

I decided to come in to work early so I can leave early. National airport is a short and convenient metro ride from my work. Actually our work – our offices happen to be in the same building  :-). Lets hope the security lines aren’t too bad. Stay tuned for some Rocky mountain high-lights.

I just noticed that Les Indiennes have new items in their online store.  Hope they have a sale soon.









This one is for Rohini, baby Z (Misha) and baby A (Anjali).


Happy first birthday baby Tullah.

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

“When Mary Mulcahy first developed an interest in Indian textiles, she wanted fabrics that were as she envisioned them – fresh and simple, authentically Indian, yet pleasing to the western eye.”

Mary together with Indian designer Srinivas Pitchuka design eco-friendly fabrics using the ancient art of Kalamkari.”Kalamkari is an intricate process, requiring 40 days, great skill and untold patience. Sun bleached naturally dyed cottons are hand-blocked with carved wood dipped in Ayurvedic dyes derived from plants, roots, earth and rock.” Isn’t hand-blocking fun? I think I will plan a hand-blocking party soon. I wish I hadn’t changed my mind about picking some hand-blocks up in Delhi or ABC store in NY. Next time then. 🙂

I am in love with their bedding. So Summer in India. If you are familiar with FabIndia and Jaipuri prints you will love their collection. I have been meaning to feature decor8 for sometime and when I saw her post on my google reader today I felt this is the best post to introduce you to decor8 and Les Indiennes. Holly, thanks for introducing them to us. I am addicted to decor8. Read decor8’s post and flip through Les Indiennes collection on their website.
