2016 thank you for my 25th year of life.

You brought me sadness because you’ve taken away beautiful souls from this planet. Besides the celebrities i’ve loved as Bowie, Prince & George Michael… you’ve taken the lives of too many innocent kids through the wars that will forever keep you in the history of mankind & i don’t know if it is you to blame for this …the karma or the fucked up people who are still living and breathing on this planet.

You brought me happiness, because i am still healthy & so is my family. 

You brought me peace every time i’m watching my child falling asleep. You brought me bliss because my son & my husband are kissing me when they are waking up.

You brought me beautiful & talented & dedicated people to work with both behind & in front of the camera. They are not only my team, they are part of my soul. Thank you Andreea Pasca, Cosmina Contu, Mihai Badin, Andreea Androne, Roxana Popescu, Iuliana Cristina Popescu for being part of Sweet Paprika business.

There are so many much more people to thank for this year, people who have been there to encourage me & give a small piece of advice & criticize me when i really needed it. Thank you for making me better!

I’m going to start this new year just like i did with 2016, with my close friends in our home.

You brought me wisdom through all the mistakes i’ve done & all the cryings i’ve felt & the smiles i’ve built.

Can’t wait to see what’s next!

See you in 2017!
