10 Years of Blogging: Remembering 2006 and 2007!

Waiting for the Avtolux

Hello my friends! Guess what! March 9, 2016 was the 10 year anniversary of me beginning my blog! I started my blog on March 9, 2006 with a brief post about a trip to Ukraine.  I had just landed in Kiev, wow! In honor of the occasion, I'm going to post a bunch of photos that will take you on a trip through my blog over the past decade.


Super Hot Dog, anyone?

In March 2006, I journeyed to Ukraine and explored the city of Kharkov, where Mama lived as a girl.

Too dark- but Inky on the Waterfront

I also went to Seattle, Washington in August.

Inky at Bridal Veil Falls

On that same trip, I went to Portland, Oregon and hiked to Bridal Veil Falls.

Inky rides the rails

In December I went to New Mexico to visit my grandmother and got to climb on this cool Santa Fe railcar in her yard!



My first trip in 2007 was to New York City! This photo of me was taken in Times Square. This photo is silly to me because now that I live in New York City, I really don't like going to Times Square!

Thirty nine

That June, I went to Ukraine again with my best friend, Violet. We had a fantastic time exploring Kharkov and Kiev!

Make a wish!

I moved with my moms to New York City in August, and in November I celebrated my birthday with friends.

Inky at Lincoln Center

In December, I wore my fancy coat to see The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center.

And those are the highlights of 2006 and 2007! Tune in soon for more peeks into the past!


  1. 10 years! Congratulations, Inky! The photo of your riding the boxcar has always been one of my personal favorites. I loved seeing it again! :)


    1. Silly me and my grammatical errors. I obviously meant "you riding" not "your riding".
