Wellcome to my blog

Hey everyone, my name is Ivana and I am a lifestyle blogger based in Vienna, Austria.

A Serbian Orthodox Baptism

My dears, today I´d like to tell you a little bit more about the Serbian orthodox baptism and this religion in general. Fabienne and Iwan got baptised on Fabienne´s first birthday and so all three of us are now Serbian orthodox. I was very positively surprised how welcoming and openminded the Serbian Church has been and also how uncomplicated.  I was worrying about the name Fabienne, because it´s not an orthodox one and about Iwan, because he has a total different cultural background.
