My Favorite Person Ever!


My Babushka (grandma) is the greatest. Tougher than a Soviet tank and sharper than a scalpel, my Ba always tells it how it is and takes no BS from anyone. She loves to fatten me up every time I visit for the summer and always makes sure the cellar is filled to capacity with her home made wine. Yes, she makes her own wine (see pic). My Babushka thoroughly enjoys a good girl gossip over a few beers and is famous for her solid, fail-proof advice. I wish I could see my Babushka more often, but she is very far away in Southern Russia... I woke up missing her very much and decided that I will do everything in my power to see my favorite person this summer!! So, I'm putting it in writing... right here, on my blog :)) 


Babushka and I, en route to the Black Sea :)
Who is your favorite person ever?


bisous,

  33. Awww...you and your gram are so cute together! My favorite person ever...hmmm...tough one. I've been blessed with many amazing people in my life. Although, my mom has to take the cake. She's strong, generous, kind, and gives great advice. And she also doesn't take *&%$ from anyone! :)

  34. What a beautiful tribute to someone who is obviously a remarkable lady. I always say something helpful in achieving your goals is to share them so its great that you have :) My favourite person was also my Nanna (& Pop) but they sadly passed away within a year of each other last year. SO with that in mind try with all your might to go and see your Ba as its important to relish them while we have them.

  38. make sure to see your dear babushka this summer, she seems wonderful!
    and it's so funny to read that she's making you gain some when you see each other, because it seems like it's the grandparents role to do so haha. they always want you to eat more!
    you look so lovely in the car!!!! /Azure

  41. I sometimes feel sad that I never got to meet any of my grandparents. You and your grandma must have a great relationship from what I can see from the pictures. By the way you look absolutely gorgeous.

  55. That was such a wonderful post! :))
    Я тоже очень люблю моя бабушка :)) Maybe she is my favorite elderly person in the world, who taught me a lot about the world of arts, culture and education. I hope all of our relatives can actually FEEL the love and appreciation we have for them, although not always expressed on the outside.
