The festive season starts in less than a month and everybody is excited about it. This season gives us an opportunity to indulge in shopping, endless treats and family get together. Sweet aroma floats in the air, people look happier and there’s so much joy everywhere.

And when it’s celebratory or a happy gala, the rice is uplifted with whole spices, nuts and raisins.

Did you guys notice the url? YES, it's now sunshineandsmile.com :) Isn't that cool ? I wanted to do that for a while now. But then, life got busy and I wanted to be sure if I was enjoying blogging. Finally, Arvind realized that I am not only enjoying blogging, but kind of getting addicted to it. So, he spent his entire evening yesterday working on my site and changed it to the new url :) The other url is still active and it will redirect you to this site, but eventually it will stop.
