I am not an American but still I do celebrate the 4th of July. Why? Because it is my birthday!
I spent the day with my family.
There was nothing fancy or grand. We stayed at home, had some special food that me and mom prepared for the occasion, drank Cinzano Rosso and enjoyed the company of each others. As I see them all only once a year it is nice to spend time together like this. I wore this chiffon dress. The neck line is decorated with sequins.
Mom's flat is on the seventh floor. I like to come on the balcony and enjoy the panoramic view
My mom is 69 and she still likes to dress up
My brother likes to cook. He is especially proud of his potato pancakes and sushi
My nephew Yan will turn 5 in October. He is very cute and often says something funny. For example, when his mom wanted to cut his nails shorter he said: "No, don't. I want long nails like aunty Olga has"
My birthday cherry cake
Flowers and Cancer sign pendant from my brother's family
A gift from mom - a handmade bracelet with a natural amber stone
I hope you're having a nice time
