More Sunshine this April :)

You know the best thing about blogging in this April A to Z challenge? I made so many, SO MANY new friends this month that it is insane! And along with making new friends, I discovered some fantastic blogs, funny, artistic, poetic and dreamy!

Vishal Bheeroo, the young zippy voice behind Vishal Bheeroo, was kind enough to nominate me for this award. Vishal is a dreamer, an excellent writer and an all round amazing friendly guy. Besides, he likes chocolates, books and movies which makes him my new best friend ๐Ÿ™‚

He is also participating in the A to Z challenge, and the theme he chose was ‘college days’ to reminisce and write about the nostalgic college days where everyone sets out to make their dreams come true. To read his posts for the challenge, head on to
