These are my favorite days. I love receiving my postcards and surprises! I also received a lovely letter and some ephemera from Olga in Russia.
Olga was just getting ready to celebrate the New Year and Christmas. They celebrate their Christmas on January 7th. They typically do not exchange gifts but instead have a family dinner. I imagine it to be something like our Thanksgiving. I love it when people send me extra items with their postcards. So exciting.
Side note: Given my fascination with everything Russian I have decided that I am going to attempt to teach myself the language. Can’t be to hard right?
A dear friend that loves photography and really has an eye for beauty took these photos of Grandfather Mountain and it’s inhabitants over the snowy weekend. Enjoy and thank you Monty!
