life update: bitter/sweet

 I haven't done a blogpost for some time so I decided to do this one in order to update you guys on what's happening with me and why I've been quiet for a while.

 Sometimes I just like to take a break from the Internet if life gets too busy or overwhelming. Basically the first thing that happened was that my grandma passed away in November. She'd got ill and just a week later she was gone so it it's been hard for me and my family to cope with the idea that she is not with us anymore. I have done a couple of shoots at the studio for these past couple of months but I didn't feel that it was my best work due to what happened so I wasn't in the mood to post anything on here. My grandma was a strong person and someone I've always looked up to. Everything in her life she achieved herself no matter how hard it would become. She went through the world war, through Stalin repressions, though the Soviet Union and through so many other things that would bring anyone down. She was always trying to find the best in every circumstance and that is something I've still got to learn. Due to her incredible talent we have so many memories left of her, like amazing masterpieces she embroidered especially for each one in our family. I've posted a few photos of them on my instagram.

       Dear grandma, I've learnt so much thanks to you and your stories. I'm sending lots of love to you up there . Please say hi to dad and grandpa and I hope that I will become someone you can be truly proud of.

There  are also other changes that have been happening in my life recently and that also kept me quite busy. First of all- I quit my job. It's been more than two years since I've been working there and as much as i loved it there I can't be more happy to be opened to new upcoming opportunities. It was basically my first serious job after I came home after the work and travel program in the states and I can't believe that the time has gone so quickly!

 And last but by all means not least...I'm moving to America! :)

I can't be more grateful for everything that has been happening to me and I feel blessed that now I can be with someone who makes me incredibly happy. 

I'm leaving just in less than a week. It's scares me as much as excites me at the same time. I'm gratefull for everything the universe is sending towards my way. I'm definitely a lucky one!

I promise to check in with you soon, my dear reader.

Happy thoughts and lots of love xx
