It was my birthday yesterday...I feel like it's going to be a special year...I'm pretty sure it will be.
My birthday starts not at 00.00 06/15 but at 3 pm on previous day because of the time difference with My home - Moscow. so I have a benefit of celebrating my birthday 2 days in a row.
It was nice and cozy and when the clock showed 3pm I've been doing my favorite thing in the whole world (sewing a toy) and eating my favorite food (pasta with cheese)...I just felt myself so special and so be where I am now...
And now about the 15th.
I've never really liked to celebrate my birthday, but at the same time June15th is my favorite day of the year...for sure.
I felt blessed...I live in the US for 2.5 years now and I don't have any friends here. Only my husband and 2 cats. And I was thrilled by the number of messages I got from my friends from Russia. I've smiled the whole day non-stop because I couldn't believe that every single person I wished to hear from - wrote me something...something nice, some words that only we care of, some wishes that they know I wish more than everything in my life...some warm phrases...they did let me feel that I'm not alone in this world...
My friends are my support and my power...
My morning started with a tonn of congratulations (It was evening already in Moscow) and skyping with my them so much!would love to spend the day with them. Then phone calls to my granny and grandpa=)
the whole day was special as well - at UW my class sang to me Happy birthday...and later on I had a nice dinner with my hubby and one of the girls I know.
The perfect addition was a movie - "five year engagement." It was a last moment decision and we went to the movie theater at 10 pm and it was a lot of fun.

Dima surprised me by cooking 22 strawberries dipped in a chocolate=) (I've turned 22) and of course the present. We decided to make ourselves a huge present for both of our birthdays (His was 3 weeks ago) -we've bought a new camera - canon rebel t3i...I can't wait to get it shipped!!!!)))can't wait to try it!

Me with a duck face)))It's probably the only picture I'll have from the day)just for the history
