Lucyka~ thanks for posting on my blog!

Yes, my mother was Slovenian & was born there in 1919. She came over on the boat to Ellis Island in New York when she was 9 years old.

No, I don't know the Slovene language & I live in Michigan.

yeah, Michigan, I didn't know where this is, but I looked at the map :P Well, tell me, didin't you wish to learn the language of your mother or to visit our country again? And tell me, how do you find Slovenia? From what town was your mother if you know ? I'm getting married in another country but I said that my children will know my language couse I have a kind of nostalgic already :))

Yeah, you're right... I'm sorry, I really am. In 1988 (I was born then haha) we were stil YU but when we became independent in 1991 we had some big advancement in economy etc... We're now in European Union and are very 'developed', we had luck that the Balcan war (in Croatia, Bosnia&Herzegovina and Serbia) didn't exeed our south border.... Well, I suppose you don't have any contacts with your relations here. Hm... if you want to know sth more or want to see some photos, or whatever, just ask, I'm happy to ''meet'' you :)One big snow and veeeery coldddddd greeting from 'Republika Slovenija' :))
