Celebrating With Food

Celebrations are in ... and there's no better way to celebrate than with food. Our sweet friends, the Coleman Family (more to come on them in a future blog post-because they have been a HUGE part of our adoption journey here in Ukraine), took the hubby and I out for dinner last night to celebrate the "official" start of parenthood for us. We ate some yummy food with a few minor translation "hiccups". Let's just say on more than one occasion ordering appetizers at the same time as our meals, often results in only appetizers coming out, leaving us with growling stomachs as we wait for meals that never seem to make their way to us. That just means we have room for dessert in the end. Yesterday's dinner ended with a scrumptious cake, and brought in my birthday (which is today) so sweetly.

Pin It!
