For the first time it was just the two of us for Christmas this year. Tyson didn’t have much time off so we decided to stay home. On Christmas Eve we did some Bulgarian traditions like having an odd number of meatless dishes. One of them was bread with a coin in it, and whoever gets the part with the coin will be really fortunate in the upcoming year (I was the lucky one). We went to Leavenworth on Christmas day just for a little bit we took a walk in the snow, visited some of the shops, and took some pictures. We had really good Christmas this year but we did miss our families a lot, but we were thinking of you and hope you had a great holiday and hopefully we will be together next year.

My sister got married on Saturday the 22nd in California. I was there for the wedding and had really good time. I got there on Friday and we were able to talk a lot and see each other. They got married at San Diego Temple it was beautiful and she looked gorgeous. I was so proud of her and was so happy to be there on this special occasion. There are a cute couple and I wish them all the happiness in the world.

Today Tyson and I decorated our Christmas tree for the fourth time together. I always love decorating the tree because it brings back so many wonderful memories of home. I also love this time of year because of the lights, the snow, the Christmas songs, and the presents. I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Today I had my first talk in church in America. I know for all of you it is not a big deal, but for me it was; it is surprising that after 4 years in the country there are still things like this that I do for the first time. My talk was titled “Live by faith and not by fear,” it was nerve-racking and I shared the story about my conversion and started crying, which was the last thing I was planning to do, but it was all well and everybody said they liked my talk so, it turn out great.

My sister arrived in L.A. Tuesday night; I am so excited that she is here, even though she is not close to us. I have talked with her a few times and she is doing really good she is getting used to everything and getting to know Eric’s (her fiancé) family. Its lots of fun talking to her and asking her what she thinks of everything, I do know it is overwhelming. I can’t wait to see her at her wedding and to spend this special time with her.

We just got home and we already miss Bulgaria; but we still want to share some memories from our trip. The day before we came home we went to the Village again with the family. We had an awesome lunch with my grandparents, which consisted of Bulgarian salads and baked lamb. After lunch we rode bicycles to a near by river to swim; after that we just sat around an listened to my grandma tell stories about me and my little sister, I think that was the best part for Tyson because he is still teasing me about some of the stuff my grandma said.

On Aug 12-13, Tyson and I went to the Black Sea on a romantic vacation. We haven’t been there in four years, so it was nice to get back to the sea to get some sun (which Tyson badly needed, as you can see). We didn’t really do much except swim and eat. Anyways here are some pictures, will tell you more about it when we get home.
On Aug 11, Tyson and I attended my sister’s engagement party; like any Bulgarian party there was plenty of food, dancing, and booze. It was really good to get the Bulgarian family together to catch up on each other’s lives and just to get to know each other a little better. I think that by the end of the night Eric (my sister’s fiancé) had officially become a part of the Bulgarian family. It was a good party and it brought back many memories of when Tyson and I got married in Bulgaria.

On Aug 10th, Tyson and I went to a traditional Bulgarian village called Etar with my sister and her fiancé. The village depicts Bulgarian life in the 19th century; we thought it was quite interesting how things were made over here during that time and how the same things were being done in America. The most interesting thing about the village was that there were people actually working and selling homemade items just like they were doing it back in the day. Here are some pictures from our trip.

Last week my sister Desi and I went to the Black Sea. It was great. I love the sea and Varna is really pretty city. I got sunburn, but other than that everything was fine. We did many things mostly swiming, tanning and window shopping. I just feel blessed to be able to spend this time with my cute little sister.
