Winter Snow and Tolstoy

Yesterday we just had the first snow in Bucharest.

Although it gave me a boost of energy and a holiday mood, I have to admit the first thought of getting out in the cold this morning was painful. Among this mix of feelings and thoughts I couldn`t help myself from wondering how come we don`t long for the charming world of the 19thc?

I for sure do as I`m thinking  Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Bulgakov, Turgheniev… so I`m sharing with you a small piece of a modern fairy tale.

So this evening I`ll be eating my last Godiva chocolates ( 😦 ) and (re)read Anna Karenina!
