First of all, woke up to an adorable 50 year anniversary picture from my grandparents. I miss them so so much!!
After a long day at work, I headed to the flower shop to pick up a pretty bouquet for my date of the night: my best friend’s mommy Ms. Marina. 🙂
I felt so happy to be back in that familiar and cozy apartment, with my best friend’s beloved cat and her sweet Mommy. We had Elena’s favorite tea, and delicious chocolate cake. For the next few hours, I learned so much about Ms. Marina’s amazing life experiences in Russia, her immigration here, and her students. It was amazing.
Its always so unbelievable how much we can learn from our parents. Sometimes, it takes years to truly appreciate those lessons.
