In The Writer's Closet, apparently, shares a birthday with Leo Tolstoy - how encouraging. :)
Yep, I posted a couple of my very first posts exactly one year ago (you can say hello HERE and HERE). Time flies! I'd like to celebrate my little blogoversary with probably the last summer dress of this year.
The dress is from Chico's (crazy crazy sale, as always). It may very well be the best summer dress ever - fun, comfy and sexy. The orange accents are my favorite, though I wore this dress with blue/green and with silver accents too. This bead necklace was made for me by one of my coworkers right before I left Russia. I adore it! I don't think I showed it on the blog before.
The earrings are hand-made Turkish copper, a gift from a friend years ago.
This blog has brought so much joy to my life. Quite honestly, I would never have guessed I'd go so far.
THANK YOU for your universal acceptance and encouragement, amazing ladies!
It's so much fun and such an honor to be a part of this very special, very unique, very warm community of women. You are kind, compassionate, brave, bright and beautiful, and also super creative!
And to those readers who only think about beginning their own blog - dive right in! There are no rules other than BE YOURSELF (oh how I love it!), and you have everything you need to make it happen!
I would also like to thank my beloved one, Justin for all the pictures, all the giggles, all the trips and all the love and support, and for holding my hand when I need it. :)
Here's to one wonderful, colorful, filled with light, joy and creativity year of blogging. It is quite a milestone for me, as it's the beginning of my writing in English.
Let us see what's next, shall we?
