Today I wanna talk about couple relationships✌🏻Because today we made it to 7 years with dear Mr.Auvitu<3 Saying it was great and beautiful all the time, will be an unbelievable lie and I won't do it. Though it can look like that from all those pictures you can see in this post...😅People are just not used to capture the bad moments in life on camera, right?! Sorry to disappoint all of you guys who think that we are sort of a "couple goals" people, but it's not as perfect as it looks...sometimes it wasn't easy at all....or most of the time actually😬
Having him as my husband is blessing and curse in the same time 😏I don't think we can ever find a perfect match for yourself and live a crazy good life from day to another. Well, we all know that, but nowadays social media makes it look like we are all happy every day...
We ´ve met with Yohann in University of Finland in 2009... I was only 16 y.o and knew nothing in life...Haven't seen much in him and he wasn't interested in anything serious...About 1,5 years later, we actually started to try dating 😀Well, it worked even on the distance and we somehow managed to keep it through the first hard step. With every year our life was changing and brought more challenges... We also went through the breaking up and dark days...I think we just learned to fight with it, because our love was stronger. I guess we are just not the couple who gives up easily... There were many changes in place of living, big decisions after graduation (as I could leave for work somewhere else than Finland).. We also worked it out and made everything happen.
Supporting a pro athlete is not an easy task and moreover the guy of who he is 😀But sure thing he had to adjust to my type of character and personal weird stuff 😅✌🏻
What is also important, the most of the couples do crazy stuff in the beginning...One day we were too young and stupid, but those things can be fixed. In my opinion, unless you go through all those crazy barriers you won't actually become strong mentally and find appreciation to each other.
So here we are, after 3 countries of living, 19 countries we visited together, bringing to life our beautiful girl and every sort of disasters and happiness ... We do love and still learning to appreciate each other more and I think it gets stronger with every year. I guess now it would be crazy to don't have him around...

Couple days ago watched a movie and liked one phrase "Love is two people who don't give up on each other.." I think this is one of my favorite ones and I hope people who suddenly gets challenges through the way of their relationship, will always try to find the way out of it and make it better. After all it's a huge work and even if you get tired sometimes, try to find the best of it and don't lose the ones you love the most ❤️

Cheers for the more years to come, more happiness and less of a disaster 😅👍🏻

Our love is forever, always has been, always will be 💋

This autumn I had a boxing photoshoot and honestly, I had no idea how to box :D I actually never thought it would be something attractive for me as a sport, because I am a girl.... i'm supposed to be a lady :) Though I always wanted to try how to punch the bag at least once in a right way 😅 It took me a while to actually visit at least one boxing club, when one day I was passing this new place in Edmonton. ...

It was written Champs Boxing Studio by Jelena who? 😀 I went to check it and she looked beautiful and nice....How come she is an 8 time Champion in BOXING? So then I decided to check it out once it's open....I got lucky it actually opened before we left Edmonton and here I am... trying to remember right moves and work on my punch 😀I started doing classes, but became so interested and went for one on one trainings! Don't regret it any minute and hopefully will get better with the time 👍🏻

I just want to encourage all you beautiful girls there, and prove that being a lady, doesn't mean you can't do something exciting for yourself! Moreover it appeared to be an amazing workout for so many different group of muscles, so I literally feel pain everywhere 😅

Jelena became a great example for me and many other girls, so i'm super happy she managed to open this awesome place and open my eyes on this side of my life goals.

Hello u beautiful people! As much as I enjoyed our little trip to Cancun, I try to enjoy searching our next get away to the beach in July... and omg! This is so hard! We already booked our villa in Mauritius, when we suddenly realized that it might not be such a good of a weather then... Since there is only short NHL break in the winter, we only managed to get to Mexico... But what to do with our summer, as all amazing destinations are in their winter time in July?! We also looked up for Maldives and Tanzanian islands, but with nothing cool I start to get tired of this search 😬😅 Has anyone any idea of some great July destinations, please share with me ❤️🏝

For now here is a little memory of Cancun⬇️ !
The weather again wasn't the greatest, so we could just enjoy some nice beach walks and the smell of the sea. I loved the place, we stayed in, as it was right on the beach and had nice restaurants inside. It was also good to reunite with our papa as we had complications in Toronto cause of the flight delay and had to stay overnight with catching the first flight to Cancun in the morning. So all of that wasn't fun when travelling with a small kid 😅but we managed and met Yohann on the beach in Mexico 🥂🐠🏝

Hello folks! Today writing from Home, as we are finally back in Edmonton! Actually feels good to be home and enjoy relaxing mornings with an idea of not having to run anywhere... to pack and go airport...
After Russia we went to visit Yohann's parents for about 4 days and also say hi to my happy place...-Paris!
To be honest with you, when I first came to France, I though my dream would come true and I would fall in love with this City from the first look at an Eiffel Tower ...Nope! Didn't happen! My first impression of Paris wasn't great and gave me a feeling of a dirty and full of tourists place. But isn't it true, that we all think of this City, as the most romantic place on earth?! And then we have a quick disappointment, as we start seeing rats or simply going to metro.... Well, done! I had this frustration for the first couple times, when I still didn't know Paris so well. For today I could probably count 20 visits to there and trust me, only last year I completely changed my point of view... If you want to have a real taste of Parisian life, you should stop being a tourist there. For the last couple years I always try to go see those hidden from the crowd places with nice Cafe and a true french atmosphere. I already started to have my favorite spots and always trying to discover something new.
This time we've spent only 4 days there(having fun with some friends, shopping and even going to see Yohann's brother game 😬), but I'm already planning to come back for a longer period in a spring time( when this city in my point of view is just amazing).
In other words- Travel Paris, but have a special list of places to visit 😉Follow my next post on our Airport adventures and a trip to Mexico<3

Сегодня для меня тот самый первый день, когда я поняла, что прилетела домой... Эта поездка в 3 страны оказалась тяжелой, но довольно приятной.
После России, мы в очередной раз решили заглянуть в Париж к родственникам мужа. Много людей меня спрашивают про этот город, потому что все ожидают получить огромную дозу романтики при первом взгляде на Эйфелеву башню. Но спешу расстроить, так как этого может не произойти. Мой первый визит в страну и сам Париж, оставил не самые удовлетворенные впечатления. Город показался грязным и набитым туристами... а так и есть, если ходить исключительно к башне, Лувру и Нотр Даму. Этот город нужно полностью прочувствовать... его надо понять и вдохнуть! По сути, нужно просто перестать быть туристом и пройтись по скрытым от всех глаз улицам с настоящими французскими Кафе, где сидят жители этого города и читают газетку за чашечкой кофе. В Париже очень много красивейших и уютных мест, пропитанных настоящими французскими "буланжери" и запахом свежего багета😀
Скорее всего я вскоре сделаю пост о тех интересных местах, о которых говорю и те, кому интересен этот город, смогут насладиться им по настоящему<3
В этот раз, я успела сходить на шоппинг, встретиться с парой друзей и показать Лие башню, но в планах уже стоит очередная поездка весной( когда Париж действительно расцветает и атмосфера просто прекрасна!)
Следите за моим последующим постом о наших приключениях в Торонто и поездке в Мексику. Всем хороших выходных!

The travels are getting hard for me and Liya, but it all worth it 100%! We just came back from a 3 weeks trip to Europe and right now sitting on the beach in Mexico...
But here is our 2 weeks in Russia! The travel itself went ok, since we had good seats and our friends were meeting us at the airport in Moscow, but as I mentioned before, our luggages were lost and came back to us in 4 days.
It was a great time seeing my family and friends. The most of all I was happy to see my brother for the first time in 2 years. Our lives separated us and brought to different continents, which made it more complicated to see each other. It was interesting to hear his life stories in Madagascar and we had lots of fun when going to Moscow to see mine and his friends. As well as that got the chance to see couple of my old friends and enjoy the Russian food and habits. Every time I come back home, I always go to the places i was used to and eating all my favorite food ( can't resist on much things there :D
Visiting my home country and town I grew up was a good refreshing start of 2018, and soon will tell you about our trip to Paris and Mexico. For now enjoying our last day in Cancun and heading back to our home in Edmonton tomorrow, already with our papa <3

Hey guys and Happy New Year to you all!!!! I hope you managed to accomplish all your beginnings in 2017 or at least planning to dive head first to 2018 with all those great ideas and plans!!
I came to Moscow with Liya day before New Year and guess what....none of our luggages arrived :D and we are still waiting for those to possibly come tomorrow, hopefully all safe! For now, just finished my 3 days visit to my friends from Oxford and all ready to go to my hometown, as Liya waiting for me there with my parents !
The night of New Year went great and it's a long time I didn't have such a fun time till 7 a.m ... we started with all the official parts with champagne, dances and contests, but ended up with a pijama party and jacuzzi before going to bed :D
In all the words it was fun fun fun and I'm endlessly happy I got a chance to see my best friend and spend an amazing time, like we were used to back in 2009 :D
Cheers guys to 2018!!!!

Всех с Новым Годом и Счастьем дорогие мои!!! Пусть этот год подарит много солнечных дней и каждодневной радости!

Мы с Лией до сих пор ждем наши чемоданы которые видимо застряли где то в Исландии по пути из Канады... Скажу одно... сложно пришлось без своих вещей😀и врагу не пожелаешь,честно!!! По плану, увидим мы их завтра, а там надеюсь что так и будет...

Ночь НГ прошла отлично в компании любимых друзей и совсем незнакомых мне людей 😆 и это было круто...

Всем приятной праздничной недели, а я направляюсь в свой родной город Калуга!

Yes, I do call it a miracle, as me skating is counted as one of them...:D Me, stepping on the ice happens about 1 time per 2-3 years, because this is just not one of my talents :D I know, it sounds stupid, as my husband is a pro hockey player, but just didn't happen :D Moreover, we didn't meet on the ice, right? I remember, first time he asked me to go skate with him, I was trying to escape it however I could, but I knew, that one day, I will just have to face it :D I also thought he would be laughing at me, as I could easily fall any second and often grabbing his hand or shoulder to don't make it happen :D but he surprised me, when he actually tried to help and teach me doing those lemons with my skates and further simple moves :D I have to admit that he through the years I started feeling a little bit more confident there, but still can't call it a real skating :D

This time, we had to skate with other players and their families, so I was more than nervous...but what surprised me the most....almost none of the wives and girlfriends felt good in skates :D So I just gave Liya to Yohann and was grabbing him again, since he is the only skater in our family :D Liya had a great time and I didn't fall, so it brought us a nice Christmas feeling and I might not be so scared anymore to step on ice !

It took us a while this year to move from a hotel to a real apartment, but as soon as we've seen the opportunity, we moved in during the 2 given to us days :D As I mentioned before, the life of hockey family can be really challenging with all the moving and changing of plans and place of living the day after another. Though there is lots of pleasant moments and nice happenings....just have to appreciate it more and let the things go with less stress :D

Starting of now I just decided to enjoy our new life in a new place for this season and appreciate Christmas holidays with my 2 favorite people. As well as settling in, we planned a 2 weeks trip with Liya for New Years, by going to visit my family and friends in Russia and Yohann's family in Paris.

My dear Frenchie has been traveling a lot lately, so I was taking care of all the moving days, as well as decorating our place for Christmas ( which I don't complain at all :D ). I'm that kind of a person who gets super excited to clean up the new place, organize everything and decorate it! Regarding to that fact that we have new places every 4-6 months, I have lots of opportunities in here :D

Absolutely loving this penthouse, as we can see the entire city from the 31st floor. Our nights became so cozy and beautiful with this panorama view from our living room. I think I'm never gonna be readyto move out of here :D

Hope you guys are having a great week so far and almost done with all those Christmas preparations. How busy is this month but how exciting it is same time. Cheers! xoxo


На протяжении трех месяцев мы жили в отеле, что имеет свои преимущества, но мне уже очень хотелось переехать и создать свой домашний уют в доме. Мои мечты сбылись, как раз перед рождеством! Отлично, вот и елочку можно купить и декорации...:D и вообще, как только увидели этот Пентхаус, тут же в него переехали! Многие меня спрашивают. как я справляюсь с постоянными переездами, ведь мы собираем чемодан каждые 3-6 месяцев и переезжаем на новые места...( я еще не беру во внимание наши регулярные поездки). Да! Тяжело... и правда тяжело, так как мы не одни, а у нас есть малышка, у которой тоже создается свой круг общения, привычки и.т.д.... Жить на постоянном стрессе не легко, но вся энергия ко мне возвращается, когда я наслаждаюсь нашим новым местом... Никогда раньше не жила так высоко, но к хорошему быстро привыкаешь, правда ведь?! :D Йохан в последнее время постоянно отсутствует, но мы проводим неплохие вечера с моей малышкой, наблюдая за огнями ночного Эдмонтона!

Сразу после рождества отправимся в Россию на новогодние праздники и на несколько дней к семье мужа в Париж, так что спокойного времени становится все меньше :D

Всем хорошей недели и замечательный предновогодних хлопот <3
