Aditi says, “Happiness! It’s always the little things & walking barefoot, feeling the earth, the dappled sun on your face, a surprise basket of fruit on your dinner table, a cycle ride, the sound of the ocean, the wind in your hair, a tight never-ending hug, smiling faces, food fresh from nature, dolphins in the ocean, rabbits peeking from behind the trees, the belief that everything is always magical, always!”
