Kristina has a deep passion for life, and the greatest capacity for love of anyone I've ever known. When we first met, I was smitten by her intelligence and her overflowing energy and creativity. She has a keen eye for finding beauty in every moment, and simply being around her makes life more wondrous and exciting. I admire her confidence, and her belief that anything is possible. She's voraciously curious about other cultures and she has a particular gift for languages. I'm always amazed when we travel somewhere new and she starts picking up the language instantly, making new friends with a playful turn of phrase. As much as she loves new adventures, she's equally happy at home, savoring a quiet moment with a cup of tea. Beneath her exciting exterior, Kristina is very sensitive, empathetic, and generous. I love how caring and kind she is to every living being, and how deeply she feels the joy and sadness in the lives of the people who are close to her. Being with Kristina has helped me understand love and appreciate life in ways I hadn't imagined were possible. I can't wait to share those experiences with a child together!
