So, finally the day came and brought too much excitement. Unfortunately, lot of girls couldn't make it due to prior commitments or last minute plan changes. We missed them very much.
Few days ago, we had decided to meet in a common and comfortable place for all of us, which happened to "Rajdhani" Restaurant in Artesia (Norwalk, CA). I am sure, people living in LA area, who are fond of Indian food are familiar with the name of this restaurant. They serve mouth watering, all vegetarian, Gujarati, Sit Down Buffet. Yes, little different and untraditional for American culture, but pretty common per Indian traditions. It is kind of all you can eat buffet, but you nicely sit in comfort of your chair and they serve you whatever you need from the menu of the day.
Anu, Divya, Priya, Shubha and Hetal all showed up almost on time. It was surreal to meet everyone finally in person. We had talked a lot over emails and some even chat. But, to meet in person, was just wonderful. We met, talked about ourselves, our blogs, gossips and then of course food. All over a wonderful lunch. We talked, talked and talked. The only person who didn't talk much was Divya and we will make sure next time, we reserve some time for her to open up further and talk more... lol. Divya, next time you better talk more girl :)
Anu and Divya were really sweet to bring the rest of us some wonderful and of course delicious gifts. Thanks guys :)
We separated promising that we will soon meet each other. After all, the blogging is all our "me" time and we love and cherish the friendships we have made through this passion of ours, food and blogging.
Love you all girls and hope next time all of us can make it and we have even more people joining our group.
Note: I am trying to upload pictures, so please bear with me.
