There are so many things I love and I'm proud of about my family, but some of them are absolutely special and favorite. We are not a big family for now, but still I believe that our connection between each other is stronger than anything in this world.
First of all The Bellis Family was officially born on 12 October 2014 when me and Pete got married in the beautiful Greek Island Crete. It was a sweet and very beautiful wedding in the circle of close relatives. After a few months little chihuahua Dominikos has joined our team and nowadays we are living a happy life 3 together.
This year we're living in Corfu, a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. However there have been so many places we were living at: 1 year in Crete, 2 summers Florina and a 1 year in Germany. When I first came to Greece I couldn't even pack my own bag, but after so many moves, I can call myself a professional packer. Really! I can pack everything, even the whole house just in one day.
Even we're living in Greece and my husband is greek, our family speaks English. Many people and relatives were saying that it's totally wrong and there is only one right way for our family to communicate which is Greek. Thanks to my husband he gave me a lot of time to learn Greek language and has shown a lot of understanding during all these years. Nowadays with the fact that I can speak the local language, we're still using English because it's comfortable for both of us (it's the language on which our relationships have been started). By the way, our pup speaks 3 languages: English, Greek and Russian. I believe that our familie's language system will improve our future children's skills and they will be thankful for so many knowledges after they grown up.
One more amazing thing to share is that we are obsessed with coffee. It's like our family sport where Pete is barista and I'm a picky expert. I didn't have any knowledges about coffee and how to cook it before he taught me. It was a long process for years I would say and I'm still learning. But now I can cook almost everything: greek coffee, cappuccino with a creamy milk, ice coffee, latte, espresso and even hot chocolate. The most pleasant part of this fact is that Pete makes me coffee every morning which is a very big sign of love for me.

Our family loves to go out for a walk. Whenever we're living, we always explore different locations and try to find cool places to eat, to chill, to have a picnic, to shop or to have fun. Our pup is very active too, so we're trying to keep him busy by taking him almost everytime we are out of house. Speaking about me, life in Greece is such an adventure for me that even the most little village will be for me something interesting and unusual. The fact of being born in Russia makes me to like and be inspired of all greek cities I lived in.
What about Pete? He is very social and open human. It's impossible for me how he makes friends everywhere just in 5 minutes. I'm very closed and distrustful person but everyday of my life he makes me more and more open. Greek people in general are kind and positive, but my hubby is on top of it.
There are so many things I would like to say, that it could be an endless post. But the most important thing is that our family is the most cool and amazing for me. I love everything about us and trying to keep it this way and even better. There are so many adventures waiting for us and I'm looking forward to share them with you.
