behind the iron curtain.
russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. — winston churchill — i have always dreamed of going to russia. i was obsessed with ice hockey when i was growing up, which at the time was dominated by good-looking russian players (ahem, sergei federov, swoon..) and even took a few years of […]
#currentmood: the comeback kid.
i awoke from a peaceful, dreamless sleep. i think to myself that that hasn’t happened in a very long time. i felt at ease, content. opening my eyes i looked around to the world outside. everything seemed so perfect. almost too perfect, if that is even such a thing. love notes, flowers, candles, whispers of […]
