The Day I Have Been Waiting For!

Wonderful things happened today! Some things that I have been patiently (well, sometimes maybe not so patiently) waiting for years to happen! Today is the day that finally came. I passed my citizenship appointment and the date for my inauguration is August 13th (yep, Friday the 13th I will become one of you people! :) )AND we got our wedding date - August 22nd! In 3 weeks! We better get moving, you think, well we are loving but humble people and are not planning to have a big wedding, in fact we are keeping it all for ourselves. So we are almost ready!

When I got home, I felt tiered, so I turned on my favorite Yann Tiersen through my cute penguin speakers hooked up to my ipod, and made some yummy blueberry cake using this deliciously illustrated recipe - check out the website, it is the best cooking place ever - I love her blog, love her photos, love her son, and it's just an amazing source of culinary inspiration!

It was a joyful activity, I mean listen to this music...

...now imagine the sun shinig through your windows, a nice apron and the smell of vanilla, bluebrries, butter, orange rind... eh, I love theraputical cooking!

Here are some pictures from the process...

I have been reading my fellow bloggers' impressions from attending the Renegade Craft Fair and it made me want to make something with my hands worth buying even more then before. I realize that mainly it is all in the idea. I mean look at these shoes.! They sell them in Europe for $250! They are about $10 to make. A GREAT idea though! I want a pair!

So I keep brainstorming and thinking weather I can some day be a part of this very appealing to me group of successful bloggers/Etsy vendors/just plain interesting people... Well, I got ways to go, but I got time too, the earlier you strat the better you get, right?

Well this was a relatively long post, but I just wanted to share some things...


  1. Поздравляю с получением гражданства!
    И с намеченным днем свадьбы!!!
    Congratulations on the great news about your citizenship!
    And the coming wedding day!


  2. CONGRATS! I'm very happy for you and I'm sure as you mentioned....you're extremely excited! I think listening to music with the cute penguin and good food was quite a good way to celebrate. Plus, you take really good pictures! I love seeing them. :) Best wishes!

  3. Thanks Michele! I love your pictures too and it means a lot to me that you say that, cause I don't feel like they are that good. :))) I sure hope everything goes well with the wedding... :)
    И спасибо Соня за поздравления!


Thanks! :)
