Spring is my favorite season of the year.
It wakes up Mother Nature from its winter sleep, brings back life, hope, and beauty of nature.
Spring inspires me to spend more time outdoors, walking, gardening, and enjoying nature.
Spring also brings Easter; a very religious holiday for me, filled with Ukrainian traditions, including Traditional Ukrainian Easter Baskets, and Pysanky.
I would like to inform you about my intent to take a temporary break from posting to my blog, due to the current unrest in Ukraine.
I am following the old saying: “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”.
I am “getting out of my kitchen” , since I am totally consumed by the current events in Ukraine, a country of my ancestors, and current motherland of many of my relatives and friends.
I am so thankful for living in a truly democratic country, where my human rights and freedom of speech are not violated.
Christmas celebrations are just beginning for all our family and friends who follow the Julian Calendar, and are awaiting Christmas Eve holiday on January 6th, and Christmas Day on January 7th.
Christmas holiday is followed by New Year celebration on January 14th.
