8th of March

It's Friday and the current forecast looks very promising for a pleasantly warm weather this weekend, so excited not to wear my winter coat anymore! Plus today is March 8th (International Women's Day) which is a huge holiday back home and I have a fresh bouquet of flowers on my desk to celebrate this special day. You will not believe the amount of flowers you would see on the streets of Russian towns today! All the boys (dads, brothers, granddads, boyfriends, husbands) give flowers (gifts are optional but flowers are a must!) to their girls on this day. The air is infused with the gentle scent of freshly cut tulips and roses anywhere you go, can you imagine that? I truly miss this beautiful holiday every year so much. 
Happy 8th of March, lovely ladies! Wishing you a beautiful day and a very relaxing weekend! xo

Пятница, 8-е Марта, прогноз погоды на выходные выглядит наилучшим образом, и у нас сегодня праздничный ужин. Вот оно - состояние счастья, обычного человеческого счастья от которого так тепло и радостно на душе. Очень-очень скучаю по тому, как мы отмечаем 8 Марта дома, в России, т.к. в Америке его не отмечают совершенно. Но мои американские подруги уже знают об этом особенном дне, мы с моей сербской подругой Тамарой (которая тоже знает и любит этот праздник) проводили ликвидацию безграмотности несколько лет назад по этому поводу :) И ещё у нас дома свежий букет, и вы ни за что не догадаетесь из каких цветов (нет, не пионы!). 
С 8 Марта, дорогие мои! Желаю вам чудесного весеннего настроения, любви и добра! Отличных всем выходных! хо

    I'm such a baby about the winter...I live in the south US where it doesn't get super cold, and I STILL can't wait for warmer weather. And of course, that first batch of peonies.
