St Petersburg. City’s Diary

Knitting Blog. The Gift Of Knitting.

My trip to the favorite city didn’t go exactly as planned, but these 3 short days were filled with dear friends, magical places and good food. This post is a collection of random moments caught here and there, each of them holding a beautiful memory about this place that will always stay in my heart.

I hope you will feel, through these simple phone photos shot on the go, the atmosphere of this unique city – magnificent buildings that make you stop and stare; cozy little cafes filled with smell of freshly baked bread and deserts and book stores hidden behind city’s doors; that distinct city’s voice made of traffic, announcements of the current exhibitions and excursions, street musicians and the mix of languages on the streets; the “texture” of the city made of colors, buildings, canals and people.

Gifts Of Life – Marina Walk

Knitting Blog

At sea I learned how little a person needs, not how much” – Robin Lee Graham

 

Knitting Blog

When I need to think and get out of my routine a little bit, I get into the car and drive to the nearest place where you can hear the sound of waves crushing and the air is filled with salty drops. It brings me back to myself, to life and lifts me up no matter what.

In this post I would like to share a special to my heart place – a marina, found a little bit outside of town. There is something soothing about walking in the sunset light, listening to seagulls, looking at boats and wondering where they have been and what they’ve seen. I bet each of them has a nice story to tell.

Please, join me for this little walk. I hope you will enjoy.

Birthday Gifts of Life

Knitting Blog

Happy Wednesday and Happy 2018! It feels so good to be back to this space – I haven’t been exactly away, just a little bit behind the scenes – I’ve been knitting non-stop these days and also working on some website updates that you will hopefully see soon!

Today I am celebrating my birthday just the way I love – waking up at dawn, working, calling my dear ones to say “I love you” and “Thank you for everything” and slowing down today, just a little bit to feel grateful for one more year in my life – I do not take it for granted!!

Also I want to share with you some special for me images from my lonely December walk, when the wind was blowing, the sky was gray, but the ocean was so beautiful that it took your breath away – this is truly my happy place…

The Gifts Of Life. Sunset Hike.

Knitting Blog

Happy Sunday! If you are watching my Instagram stories, then you already “hiked” with me yesterday and saw this breathtaking view from the hill… Today I would like to share with you the images lit with the sunset light. Hiking is one of my favorite activities, it’s been forever since my last one, but yesterday I made myself put away the to-do list, got my tennis shoes and went up the hill to say goodbye to the sun. I hope you will enjoy this little photo story today and have a wonderful Sunday!

Summer Gifts + Free Wallpapers

Happy Friday! This week I was going through summer photos and found some hidden treasures from our August road trip. As hot and humid summer is gone, I wanted to save these images that remind me of salty air, hot, almost burning wind and the sound of waves crushing… I hope you will enjoy this little visual story today. I also prepared for you a set of downloadable wallpapers for your desktop and a phone. I wanted to do it for a long time, please, let me know if you like the idea 🙂

And now, off to California west coast… You can turn on Sigur Rós for the perfect mood.

Gifts Of Life. At Dawn

Knitting Blog

I love routine. Love waking up at the same time every morning while it is still dark, lit up a candle, stretch, knit, go to work… Love this familiar rhythm of days filled with simple little things that warm your heart. But sometimes there is nothing better than to wake up on your day off and decide to chase a sun. Jump in the car, turn on your favorite music and climb in the darkness up the hills to meet a new day, be in awe with nature and infinitely grateful…
