1st of March, Romanian way!

It’s that time of the year again: flowers start to blossom, sun is shining, and…. we are celebrating women for a whole week!

At least in Romania, we are. 

A bit more about the tradition here:

Because I am not in Romania, my boyfriend wanted to surprise me: he brought me flowers, red and white threads, plus a second hand bracelet from Polder, which I love!!!

Because yes, the future of the planet is in your hands too.
