Goodbye 2017

It is that time of the year, when you invariably look back at the good and bad times of the year gone by.  This post talks about, just that.

- I have read a lot of books this year. Some of them have definitely left a lasting impression on me. To name a few - 'The god of small things', 'when breath becomes air' and '10% happier'. Though I could not complete the 'Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy - a trilogy in four parts', I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing style is so unique, simple and just plain funny.
- We drove our car to places this year. Diveagar, Temgarh and Vadgaon.
- We started morning jogs, in January. It went on pretty regularly for around 45 days. After that we only continued our afternoon and evening walks. We had targeted a distance of 1000 kms for the year, but we just reached the half mark.
- We went for another night trek, this time to Rajgad. It was a tougher trek and we have improved our stamina a lot, since the last one.
- My cooking has improved a lot. We have also started aligning delicacies made, with the various festivals.
My younger sister got married this year. It was an emotional moment for all of us. She is the youngest and still very much a kid for all of us.
- We now have one more nephew (Aman) who is super curious!
- We planned plenty of vacations and enjoyed a lot this year, with friends, with family. We've also made some trips to spend quality time with each other. (The diwali vacation with Ayaan and Aman and our anniversary trip to Temgarh are the memorable holidays of this year)
- This year also records our first (though minor) car accident. Luckily, no one was hurt. It still gives me nightmares, sometimes.
- I have not written as many blogposts as I should have. As you can see, there were many trips/events that I could have written about.

Thank you 2017, you have been memorable. Looking ahead with hope, at the new year. May it bring with it joy, happiness, contentment and new beginnings :)
