Best of 2011



This year is almost over and I’m excited to enter into the new 2012 with a Big Smile on my face. This coming year would be a change for me and I love the Change. How Bob Proctor  once said~ you can not progress until you are comfortable, get out of your comfort zone to achieve more. That’s exactly what I”m going to do. I’m moving to the new city of Barcelona and I am going back to school!

 Barceloneta

Casa Batllo, Barcelona

This year was pretty special to me. Most of it I spend in breathtaking scenery of Costa Rica with my friends and really special people. Some moments I would never forger, some moment will stay in my heart Forever!  That was a great time for my soul and spirit and made me realize and discover many things about myself and who I really am. 

Jaco Beach~ Costa Rica.
Photographer~ Me

The second half of the year I spend in the other part of the world in my Motherland~ Russia. A lot of quality time with my Mom. Honestly, I can have the best time in the company of my Mom. She is this type of person who understand and never judge, just give you a good advice and direct on the right direction. If you are reading this Mom~ I love You!)  


I had a lot of sex in the city type of get together with my adorable girlfriends and a lot of wine and dancing afterwords. Love my group of friends~ they always there for me. In October, I had an amazing trip through Spain with my girlfriends. We rented a car and went from Madrid down to south of Spain and then all the way up to Barcelona. What a fun trip. We had a real blast!

 Spain Trip


Moscow

 That’s funny how life can change in such a quick period of time… Totally different setting and absolutely different experiences…life is beautiful I can absolutely tell you that LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!
And now I’m ready for a new challenges, new experiences and new success…..that’s a great feeling to be excited!
