Hello 2018!!! Our Holiday Adventures


Hi my dears! How is your 2018 so far?! ;o)

I am still under absolutely wonderful memories and emotions …and have a bit lazy day. Tomorrow I’ll be back to my lovely work, but today I decided to share with you some pictures and videos from our such exciting, enjoyable and full of surprises holiday season.

This is perhaps the first year when I finished all scheduled projects until December 20; my husband took a mini vacation, – and we were able to fully enjoy almost two weeks of our friend’s visit from the CA.

Christmas was absolutely awesome! In the morning, friends invited us to join ride on their yacht. Afternoon, it began to snow, which is not typical for Seattle, but certainly added a festive mood! Plus we hosted a party with our lovely friends – what could be better!


And here is that moment, when you ask husband to share a photo from the museum for your blog post, and he sends you a link to the entire album:


Afternoon, it began to snow, which is not typical for Seattle, but certainly added a right mood! Plus we hosted a party with our lovely friends – what could be better!

Last week of 2017 was extremely busy and exciting: such fun with lots of friends, Summit ski resort, Leavenworth Christmas lights, Flying Heritage & Combat Armor museum on one rainy Seattle day – just to name a few Winking smile

I even managed to avoid the holiday’s cooking – we were at a New Year’s show. But I think I was probably the only one who cooked breakfast on the January 1st, but, crêpes with red caviar is one of our favorite dishes!

OK, that’s all! Looking forward for my very first working day tomorrow!! ;о)))
