This year I’m a bit sad on Diwali because we usually celebrate the Indian festival of lights with our friends Rishi & Meredith, and their two beautiful daughters. Since we’re now 3000 miles away, it’s not so practical to pop over for a delicious Indian meal & share in this lovely tradition.

Instead, I’ll be lighting candles, perhaps doing a craft or two with the kids from years past, and listening to some rocking Bollywood tunes. Oh, and I think I’m also going to have to break out our Indian gear.

Tonight will be SPARKLY in my house.

PS: if you live out on Long Island & know of a good place to grab some Indian food, please let me know! We miss our butter chicken, naan & papadam!!

(great, now I’m maudlin AND hungry!)
