10 Years of Blogging: Remembering 2008 and 2009

New T-shirt!

Hello again, my friends! My throwback posts commemorating 10 years of blogging continue with this entry. I'm going to share photos of 2008 and 2009! In 2007, I moved to NYC, where I still live today, but many of these photos are from my travels. Enjoy them!


Thirty three

The first big adventure of 2008 was going to Utah to visit my best friend in the whole world, Violet! We went to Canyonlands National Park and hiked and played in the red, red rocks.


In this photo, I am in Adams Morgan in Washington, DC! I went to visit the pandas on our way home after a trip back to the Midwest to visit my extended family.

Camping in Wellfleet

That summer, I also went to Cape Cod for the first time! Now it's a family favorite, but then, we were still working out our family's favorite spots. In this picture, I'm camping in Wellfleet in my own tent!


I also discovered the Webrangers website and worked through every last one of the games! Wow! I earned a special patch for my hard work.


Violet and I have more frequent flyer miles than most dolls! She came to visit me in Summer 2008 and we explored Cape Cod. We even found a tiny hermit crab on the beach!


In the fall, I flew out to Utah again! I visited Violet and we had lots of fun adventures. We were so sad to say goodbye to each other! Violet is the best friend a girl could ever have.



In 2009, I met my friend Sonali and she took me dog sledding. So cool!

Inky and Zuly playing Wii

I also made friends with a girl named Zuleikha. The two of us played Wii quite a bit that summer as it rained all the time!

Grand Canyon 2009

Later in the summer, Violet and her parents took me with them to the Grand Canyon!! Wow!!

I think 2008 and 2009 were really fun years. I'm glad I had the opportunity to spend so much time with Violet! What did you do in 2008 and 2009?

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!
