Welcome Spring – New Life, New Beginning

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.

Euromaidan in Kyiv Ukraine – Fight for Freedom, Human Rights,Democracy

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.
