Happy Anniversary, Jeanne and Kolya!

One year ago today. It hardly seems possible that a whole year has gone by. And then, at other times, it seems like forever ago: so much has taken place in these last 12 months.

Jeanne and Kolya are living outside of Kyiv now, and visiting us on weekends, so we celebrated their anniversary on Saturday night — 52 weeks later. Jim and I prepared a special dinner beginning with champagne and bruschetta (thanks Janet and Biz). Steamed snow peas, crisp salad, grilled pork chops, basmati rice were accompanied by a nice bottle of dry red…saved from their reception and held onto until this special day. Warm apple brown betty with freshly-brewed coffee for dessert.

Here’s to many, many, many more happy years together.

To God be the glory!



  1. Please pass along to the lovely couple:
    CONGRATULATIONS and happy anniversary!
    May you have many more!

  2. A year already?! Amazing! Congrats to the Old Married Couple:-)
    Do you have Dasha and Jamie’s new address? Can you e-mail me?

  3. Wayne: Will do. (Jeanne may actually discover this comment here, but she’s away from internet through the week…and has a LOT to catch up on when she visits on the weekend!)

    Suzanne: Hard to believe! I have just received the young Peipons’ new address…do you already have it?

  4. Thank you for your wishes, Mumsie, Wayne and Suzanne!
