Happiest of birthdays to my favorite Russian sister, @anechka161!  Crazy that it was SIX years ago that I was first celebrating your birthday with you on my very first time to Russia… I am SO thankful that God put us together from that very first summer and the bond that formed then has not been broken… Look how much we’ve grown up!  To many more years to come!  С днём рождения, милая русская сестра, Анечка!! Я ТАК благодарна, что ты есть и что ты в моей жизни… желаю тебе и твоей (новой и старой!) семье счастья, здоровья, и любви!! #birthday #friendship #sisters   (в Greenville-Rostov 🙋)

Still and always will be captivated by this…

You look ridiculous if you dance.
You look ridiculous if you don’t dance.
So you might as well dance.

Метрополитен

for years i sat across from you

or stood close to your face

never occurring to me, ‘til now

your thoughts are just as long as mine,

your journey as rote

your love as severe,

your sacrifice, deeper
