I saw several bloggers doing this tag and wanted to do it…. and then Visha put me on the hot seat to take up this tag. I know January has already gone past and I am very late in posting this.

I made a princess cake 🙂
I did river rafting (and that reminds me a post on that is still pending 😦 )

Hmmm… didn’t make any proper new year resolution.
