Welcome to Dee-Day: Inviting Guest posts

Here's the thing....

This wasn't really meant to be a food blog. When I wrote my first post on this space, I was upset....and hurt. I had never been a traditional, adhering person. But the day I missed to observe a yearly ritual; I  felt wounded; a little shocked. Traditions brought back memories of family and togetherness....of meals meant to be shared with love. The wounds of loss were still raw. Writing seemed to ease some of that pain. To me; meals and memories are sides of the same coin. In good times and bad; food brings families together. And so, over time, My Life & Spice became a majorly Food blog....with memories thrown in.

 Through my writing, I want to inculcate some of that old way of life in the minds of my two young daughters. To introduce them to my life as a child...
...I want them to see tradition through my eyes; live it as I lived it many years ago....
...I want them to experience tradition with me; as I have been able to recreate it for them - through  fragile, quickly-fading memories....
... some day; I want them to establish their own traditions....and hopefully include me in them. With a little sprinkle of memories that they will create with me in their growing up years.

But their horizons are broader than mine. They are so much more exposed to diversity than I was at their age. I am still learning....
