Blogging Marathon Meeting : One year gone by, but memories still fresh...

Just a year back, a group of bloggers from across the country decided to meet in person and have some good fun, sharing love and knowledge. So the plan was to meet at Ahmedabad and hence our journey began. We got to meet the faces behind the blogs that we visit daily and interact over the various technologies available. Today each of our day starts and ends with this wonderful group of ladies from across the globe. One thing that brings us together is the love for cooking and trying various recipes from around the subcontinent and the globe. I am very very proud to be a part of this group. I must also admit that though I am not a regular blogger as compared to all others, they serve as inspiration to me in more than one aspects.

Let me refresh our memories with some photos that I clicked during the trip. (I was the official photographer of the whole trip)

Loads of goodies that I had got from my very sweet and thoughtful friends

Pretty faces early in the morning. Oh how much I love this group. We did not take even a minute to  mingle with each other.. Felt like we knew each other for ages only

Like real crazy people, we stopped a amla vendor to click and smell the fresh fennel he had. 

All decked up with our aprons. thanks to Vaishali. I treasure that apron a lot .

At cream and crunch, where we learnt to make chocolate cigars and wings.
