Back from Ukraine!

I'm back from vacation!  Over Thanksgiving I had the opportunity to go visit my sister who is in the Peace Corps in Ukraine.  I hadn't seen her in 14 months, so it was great to be able to go catch up with her, see all of the places she has talked about and meet her friends!  I tried to find some photos that include Vera Bradley items, but there weren't very many. 

This first one (excuse the hat hair) is me and a hot chocolate so thick you could eat it with a spoon.  I have my Raspberry Fizz Tech Case...great camera case! 

This one is of me at the wharf on the straight between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.  Sporting my  Hipster in Loves Me. 

No Vera in this one...just a cute picture of me and my sister! 

I had no Vera Sightings while I was there!  I thought that I would see at least one, but no such luck.  That might change because I gave Erin a Ditty Bag in Simply Violet while I was there.  I had 3 of them with me and Erin liked them, so I gave her one.  I also had an extra Card Holder in Folkloric that I gave to her friend Ira who has 3 jobs!! I can't think of anyone who works harder than her.  So now Ukraine has two new pieces of  Vera Bradley. 


  1. Yeah! Looks like you had a great time! You have been missed!

  2. Sounds like you had a great trip! I love using my tech case as a camera case!

  3. anonymus, i love vera bradley also! and im planning on getting 2 new items the hipster and the 100 handbag what do you think..? and also nice pictures! sounds fun

  4. So funny you said you didn't have a Vera sighting while you were there. I went to Europe with a few girlfriends and I took my Large Duffel in Very Berry Paisley. In Switerland a guy from Boston stopped us to talk and said he knew we were American from my bag because "everyone has one of those bags." We also saw a group of women in Germany that were all carrying Vera. Very cool. :)
