so hot it berns

Today we rushed into Bern to go to the Russian Embassy for our Russian Visas.
oh by the way, we’re going to St. Petersburg in August with my in-laws.
With our 40 pages of required documents in hand, we made our way to the consulate.
but they closed… at 11.  
they work 3 hours a day! 3 days a week. that’s a job i can handle.
We made the most of it before JB had to go to work though… 
it was hard not to, the day was absolutely beautiful and bern is enchanting.
and of course, i made my way to the flower shop.  
we bought rose and grape jelly even.  
and now I am home and just finished watching pride and prejudice.
ohhh for the millionth time.
best movie ever. 
(still wiping tears away)


-the necklace is from h & m  …the shirt is an old navy but its worn backwards.  
Come on over here to Kit’s blog for a chance at a photo (:

{congrats to kELLO, you won a canyouhearme print made by Sam

    can i just say that doesn't surprise me at ALL about the 3 hours a day/3 days a week thing? i mean…at this point, i've learned not to expect any more than that from any bureaucratic establishment in the tri-country area.

    congrats on the application completion though! i've heard that russian visa is a biiiatch.

    Every post of yours adds another entry on my "places to see" list. Now I've just added "Bern in spring time." Lucky lucky lady! And that's fabulous about Russia! What a trip that will be.

    Squeee! I'm so excited for August when I can see your Russia pics! Taras moved from St. Petersburg when he was 14 and we haven't been able to visit yet (but we officially can as of next week when he's old enough that we can go without draft concerns!). Anyway, your future photos will be a treat!!
