mother and child tender moment in black and white
Hi! I am Julia, I live in Palermo, Sicily, with my 4 kids and Italian husband, who’s doing research at the University here. I love long walks and bicycle rides, holding hands with my kids and a good cup of coffee.
Life in our house is busy and a bit chaotic. Our kids’ names all start with an ‘M’. We speak 3 languages (I’m Ukrainian with Russian as a native language, plus Italian and English). We build Legos, read, watch movies (National Geographic documentaries are the current favourite) and play board games. We have a rule that sticks, rocks and other treasures from our outdoor adventures stay outside on the terrace, but kids still try to sneak them in :-).
I love autumn, the colour blue and walking barefoot on the beach. I knit sweaters for my kids (which sometimes never get quite finished). Our kitchen is full of hand-painted ceramic mugs, and I love to cook and bake with the kids, then watch them licking the batter bowl clean.
Here’s some of my three ‘M’.
