Ukrainian Wedding Bread (Korovai) given to us by a parishioner...
it is excellent sliced thinly, toasted, and spread with butter!
We're home! We were fortunate to enjoy a long weekend away this past Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Our destination was our Nation's Capital, Washington D.C. We went for the March for Life on Friday, Saturday was an excursion to Mount Vernon, and we were able to celebrate two big events on Sunday: Metropolitan Tikhon's Enthronement at Saint Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral and a parishioner's wedding at Saint John the Baptist Cathedral!
There will be a lot of rest and recuperation after such a long weekend today (we call them Pajama Days here)! The washing machine has been humming away since we woke up this morning, there is a fire in the grate, and the little ones are playing (mostly) happily with their toys. We'll try to muster up the energy to work on our lessons this afternoon and pop out to the market to get a few essentials, but it should be a low key day for the most part! I'll post pictures as soon as I sort them all out... hopefully by this evening!
