If you read my earlier story about meeting Inessa and her lovely family..
You might recall that I was pretty stunned by the level of warmth and hospitality that I received from them when I came to Siberia.
In short I was incredibly moved..
I had a feeling that something special like this was going to happen so I decided to come prepared.
Earlier before my arrival I took it upon myself to take a collection of photos I had of Inessa and had combined them into a collage for her and her mother.
I created a nice 8 x 10 glossy.. framed it nicely.. and then embellished it with some decent wrapping paper.
After dinner the right moment presented itself and I pulled a blanketed glass picture frame out of a bag.
There is really no way I could have justifiably captured that singular moment when Inessa and her lovely mother unwrapped it..
But I can show you what they received…
And I think you can probably figure out if at this moment there was more then just a simple smile on both of their beautiful porcelain like faces.
