A Sari Party

A few weeks ago, we celebrated my aunt & uncle’s 25th wedding anniversary. My two younger cousins threw a fabulous surprise party in honor of their parents. I glammed it up for the occasion; it was a “Sari Party,” as my friend Robyn says!

This particular sari was given to me by my aunt in Australia when I was visiting in May. I was happy to have a fun occasion to wear it to!

The girls went all out for the party:

Memories… We were unable to attend the actual wedding back in 1987, but we visited my aunt and uncle in London a few weeks afterward, during my winter break from school. I remember being excited about the plane ride and meeting them both for the very first time. I have vivid memories of reading my travel journal to my new uncle – it was an elementary school assignment since I was missing class for a few days! I wish I still had it; I can only imagine the things I would have written back then!

  2. you looks great… I love Sari, almost buy one when I was in Mumbai many year ago… but change my mind because the seller auntie told me that it is hard to put on. I end up buying set of colorful and shiny bracelet 😀

    • haha I think you made a good decision… I had to enlist my mom and aunts to help me drape it correctly! I’m sure you get a lot more use out of those bracelets 😉

    • I’m sure you’ll have another chance soon 😉 I always think back to the time we went window shopping on Devon Street in Chicago!
