Our next door neighbors quickly became friends we see everyday. They moved here from Southern India last year and the kids play together almost everyday and quickly became like siblings (bickering and all).  We were invited to celebrate their little girl turning 2 and I finally got to wear my sari from Varanasi which I completely forgot how to actually wear correctly but luckily there were many ladies to help me get my fancy on.

Happy Birthday Vinnu!

Their family in India “attended” the party too thanks to Skype (they got up at 5am their time to see everything!)

My blinged out self and my boo. I might have been barely able to walk but I still managed to eat 3 plates of the amazing food!!We are grateful for our friends and to have been included in their community celebration.
