Being an outsider in Washington DC is not that uncommon. in fact, almost everyone living here came for a specific reason - professional career, master's degree, political interests, or similar. People spend one, two, three years max in here to achieve their goals, and then go back to their countries of origin feeling accomplished.

I came here for unlimited time and a crazy reason: to chase love. As cheesy as it sounds, that is my reality. The good news: I’m extremely happy here - the most I have ever been! The bad news: my family and friends live far far away - and it gets very complicated to share life and good things with them.

December is an especially tough month. You know, all the celebrations, twinkling lights everywhere, christmas gatherings. It’s just too beautiful not to share it. That’s why I decided to write about what inspires me - what makes me happy. This is my personal celebration of life - that I would like to share with you. Splendid living that I hope you enjoy as much as I do. 

This is my blog. Welcome!
