This past May, I visited my family in Ukraine and attended my nephew's wedding. It's been a long 6 years since I visited my former homeland. There was nothing better than just chatting with my dad about life, enjoying talks with my mom and feasting on her exceptionally yummy Ukrainian food, which of course was made with Love. Fun times were enjoyed with my brother and my nephews. My daughter Olena also arrived from her travels to attend the wedding so it turned out to be a really special family reunion. 

Check out some of the architecture, lifestyle, my mom's gardens and more in some of these photos from my trip.

I just LOVE the city of LVIV and highly recommend that you go and visit this wonderful city if you haven't yet.
