Happy Holi!

So today we celebrate the festival of colors! What a way to herald the arrival of Spring. There can be no  better way to welcome another season than to celebrate with colors and warmth.  On this day of Holi, I hope your life and the coming year is full of color and the old faded memories get a fresh coat of warmth and happiness. May this Spring also mean a spring in your step and a smile on your face.

 

Happy Holi!
