Winter Comeback

Ok, this is getting seriously ridiculous! May is almost over and instead of the weather getting nicer with each day, it gets colder and colder! Today I seriously considered putting all my summer clothes away, as I do at the end of the warm season, and taking out the clothes I packed away till the next fall/winter season. Very depressing thought… These pictures were taken two months ago and it feels like it was warmer back then than it is now!
At least there is something very exciting ahead of us – the amazing-to-be three-day weekend! I think for the first time ever I have no plans whatsoever, which means “Watch out Olga’s credit/debit cards!” as having nothing to do means turning to shopping to save me from getting bored. Oh well, whatever works…

Pink Suit

Today marks the official end of my absolutely amazing birthday weekend (phew!). It is a sad moment, but all the wonderful memories make it feel so great! I am exceptionally grateful to everyone for making it all happen!
One of my favorite things to do on my birthdays is dressing up in something new, something I’ve never worn before. While this pink suit has hung in my closet for quite a while, I have not gotten a chance to wear it until yesterday, as I simply could not think of a place and time where it would be appropriate. This weekend seemed like the perfect time to set it free.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mamochka!


To my wonderful, beautiful mommy..

Mamochka,

There are not enough words to describe what a remarkable person you are! I guess I am one of the lucky ones to be able to say that “My mom is my best friend!” Thank you so much for always being there for me, for directing me when I need your guidance, for always looking out for my best interests, for accepting my flaws and embracing my imperfections, for encouraging me to move forward and for always believing in me! Without your love, support and positive outlook I would not be where I am right now! Your strength, compassion and wisdom are inspiring to so many people! You are my true role model and I am blessed to have a mommy like YOU!

Love,

Olga J
