Patiently waiting for Diwali…

Less than 2 months and I will be returning to India and my husband.

I am so unbelievably excited, I cannot wait! It is going to be amazing to share my first Diwali with him! I really do not know how I will contain my excitement on that flight back to Mumbai. Just thinking of hugging my Husband again after so long brings tears to my eyes. I miss his warmth and the way he smells; you cannot experience those over Skype. I’m so over waiting for Diwali now!

My two-week return to India will be so refreshing as work is really tiring me out at the moment especially when I miss my Husband dreadfully. Not a single second with my husband will be taken for granted, especially as I would do anything now for just a single second in his embrace. Thankfully, we will be reunited for Diwali (even if for only two weeks) so this year of training will be semi-bearable. I cannot imagine an entire year without holding his hand.

Diwali is the celebration of the return of Lord Rama to his kingdom, and this year (for us) the celebration of the return of my Husband to my arms. I am so thankful I will be spending this Diwali with the light of my life.

UpdateNo Diwali for me: my water damaged passport


  1. Tell me about it… Such heartache being continent apart. Hang in there, hugs… 🙂
    I used to celebrate Diwali (mostly the eating portion of the celebration, haha) with my indian best friend that I’ve known since 10 years old… (wow time flies, that 29 yrs of friendship) when I was still in Singapore.

    Such a beautiful couple 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy every bit of your move to India. My boyfriend wants to visit India someday, a place where his grandmother/grandparents used to live.

    ” Love is the most powerful force in the universe and I feel so blessed to have a love so strong that it pulls me half way around the world…” Well said. I agree.

    Happy weekend! Take care



    • Hii Jenni. It is heartache definitely. I hope you have an amazing time when you visit India with you boyfriend!! Thank you so much for your lovely comment. Have a beautiful Sunday, take care x


  2. Best of luck. Diwali is exactly reunion of people and families in India. I guess for you it will be one of the best. Beautifully expressed emotions in the post.


    • Hello!! I was in India for 5 weeks, going for 2 more in October/November then next year forever!! My husband is still in India (sadly 😦 ) so we have this separation at the moment. He has a good job and is working there. I am just so excited to be reunited with him!!


    • Awww thank you so much Amelia!! You keep in touch too, I am sure we have a lot to talk about! So nice to have met you!! I have ‘liked’ your facebook page so I can keep a track of you.Take care huni, hope to hear from you soon!


  3. I just read this one. I’m sorry you have to go through this. When my husband and I met for two weeks(here in India) about 5 years ago, we kept connected after separation through chat and email for about a year. We weren’t in a relationship but our connection was undeniable and I missed him. When I moved to the US a year later to be with him, circumstances led us to be separated for about 2 months, and it was horrible. After that we have been inseparable. We are together 24/7 and couldn’t imagine living in a different place than him. Hang in there! And thankfully you can be together forever next year. 🙂 p.s. Neither of us are Indian, but this year will also be our first Diwali together! haha.


    • Awww yes. We are going to find a way for us to never have to leave eachothers side- hopefully he can work from home or something. Even when he goes to work whilst I was in India it was too much separation so living thousands of miles away is just tooooo much! I cry every day about it. Less than 11 months now and seeing him next month!!. I am soooo sure you will have an amazing Diwali!!! 😀 Yay! 😀 Looking foward to seeing your diwali photos 😀 x
