The journal of an American expat in Russia
My dad had purchased a rose for me.He gave one to my mom as well, as he does on every 18th of the month.In the evening, we went out to dinner.Here I am with Anastasia (left) and Louisa from Nigeria, who is staying with us.This is Nastia explaining to Dad how she wants a "non-traditional" wedding song for when they're walking in together. He's listening and processing this information.Here is the group: Shawn (Nastia's fiance), Nastia, me, Louisa, Emily, Mom, DadI decided to have a strawberry dessert since they're in season and I don't get fresh strawberries much in Russia.I can't photograph all of the e-mails, phone calls, and other messages. But they were appreciated. Thanks, everyone!
Looks like a nice time.
Congrats!You guys all look so great!I have a question though, what does your dad's "Happy 430th!" signify?Oh, and c'mon, Liz, there are plenty of fresh strawberries in Russia!
Belated Happy Birthday, dear blog friend!You really enrich my life.[OK - every 18th of the month? Why? Whatever the reason, your mom is very fortunate to have such a thoughtful, romantic husband.]
Thanks!35.something yearsx12months=430They were married on the 18th of the month!
С наступившим днём рождения! :)
