This Holiday season is going to be very special for me. Its not a secret that my whole family has been scattered across the world for many years. I am in Italy, mom in the US, my brother in Germany and dad in Ukraine. Talking about International families… But it just makes every moment together that much more special. And this year, for the first time in over eight years, we will be celebrating this holiday season together!
-Guys, I cannot have another bite. I am stuffed!
Sounds familiar?! Happy upcoming holiday season! This is truly one of the most magical and wonderful times of the year! The sense of celebration is palpable everywhere! You get to attend lots of parties, spend quality time with the loved ones and of course enjoy some delicious food that, lets be honest, you wouldn’t necessarily had during any other time of the year.
-Anastasiya, did you take my shoes again?
My mom wasn’t happy. I took her shoes and long dress again to practice my red carpet walk. How else was I suppose to get ready?! Somehow I knew that one day I would leave this small town in Soviet Union that most maps of the world wouldn’t even show and move far far away.
