Oh, Sofia. That's Bulgaria's capital city; the place where my sweetheart was born and raised and where his entire family still lives. The rose (depicted above) is a prominent symbol of the country. We're headed there this summer (post Paris) and I couldn't be more excited to visit and explore. We'll also be spending some time at the seaside, on the east coast of the country.
(That's the Black Sea, in case you're as geographically-challenged as I am).
I adore Tiho's Eastern-European roots and cannot wait to learn even more about the individuals, environment and culture that largely shaped him into the wonderful man he is today.
