Life in a family home

Random Talks

Hi guys! I think taking long hiatus from this blog is becoming my style. Its not for the lack of words or ideas or things to share though. But only for the lack of time and my general laziness/busyness. I have always loved coming to this space with a chaye on hand, hanging in my…
