This time last year...

Dress - Trashy Diva
Do you ever have one of those moments where you stop and think back to where you were and what you were doing on that exact same day last year? I've been looking through a lot of old photos from last year that I never got around to posting, a few snapshots from a beautiful summer day when I picked bluebells and blueberries in the forest.

All of these photos were taken about a five minute walk from where my family lives and where I used to live, in a Moscow suburb about half an hour out of the city. The green domed building as you might have guessed is a (Russian Orthodox) church; the bells used to wake me up every Sunday morning and it's a sound I'd give anything to hear again even though I always complain about the noise when I'm there.

  1. Beautiful photo's, my dear. If I think back to this time last year I was working my butt off in a pretty awful job trying to save money to go overseas! Much prefer my current situation!

  12. I always find my thoughts wandering to those days. I am constantly saying 'Oh this time next year' Or 'This time 5 years ago!' I love reminiscing!
    Thank you for my comment- I love that you've come back to visit my blog. It is the same blog, but it has had a little re-design or two.
    These photos are so pretty!

  15. I do think this way very often, especially in summer, June always meant to me something good, I have a lot of great memories from this time of the year, too bad nothing from that time survived. I love how you look on those pictures, they look magical!
