From Last Year.


So I know that 99.99% of the people that know me do not understand, but the fact that I have this simple blog is unbelievable for me – it is a dream come true. I am very happy and proud that I finally found the courage to post, to write and to take photos – even if the last part is still a bit difficult for me.  I just really hope that I will be able to post more often. I haven’t done any pics this year (I have no clue how most people take blog pics in this cold weather – it is almost torture to me due to the cold). These pics were taken during a Saturday with Dorel.

A cool thing about having a blog is that you get to learn and explore things that maybe you haven’t done before – for me there are many such things, almost everything I do for the blog actually. I will explore most ‘discoveries’ I made in future posts.

One of the things I am very happy to say I did due to the blog is to explore streets I have never walked on in my own city! And I walk a lot – I don’t even have a car, so most of the time I walk. These streets are in the old part of the city, really close to the city center, and I was very excited to admire some amazing houses from the interbellic period. I didn’t even know these streets existed, let alone the buildings. The TV from the pics must have been a bonus – we found it in our walk. Last time I saw such a TV it was in a museum.

All I Wish.

All I wish I had in Winter is good weather, which means average temperatures – certainly not the freezing cold we are blessed with these days. Every time I have to leave my place or my office or whatever indoor heated space I am at, my bones literally hurt at the feeling of the grueling cold. And I don’t even live in Russia!!! I have no clue how that people survive.
But I have to make myself clear – I hate being dressed like a person from the North Pole. Nothing is more uncomfortable than having 6 layers of clothes. It is way too much work to get them on/off several times a day, plus somehow I always manage to wrinkle my main outfit, which is usually under two sweaters, one scarf and the coat. I admire and love to see [on others] layered clothes – I am certain that not everybody has that skill, and by that I mean the skill to masterfully mix textures and colors in order to have a perfect outfit in the end.
I am not saying this is a typical outfit for me in December, but I wish it was, so it was a pleasure to prepare and get these pictures done by Dore.
