A month in photos {July 2015}

Whoops! It's been a month... but I never miss my month in photos post ;)

We've been on holiday and I been doing... pretty much nothing. Except reading, dreaming, travelling, walking, running, swimming... enjoying my July. This summer has been the coldest ever in Finland. Luckily we spent ten days in Poland seashore and got to enjoy some warmer weather. Two days ago my oldest daughter turned eight (!), suddenly jasmines are bloomed away and it's time to dive into August.

Big thanks for sharing your collages with me! :)


My this month favorite is included in my collage. Our home street, my bare footed daughter and jasmines...

A month in photos {June 2015}

Today was warm and sunny and officially the first day of my summer holiday. 
June was good but I'm sensing July will be the best!

One look at her
and I knew I'd
spend far too much
time trying to write
a poem as beautiful
as her.


This month favorite was so easy to pick

Summer state of mind...

Now you really gotta stop wishing for the sunshine and start living in the rain... We've seen spending the Midsummer celebration with mostly rain in the +15 degrees. I'm wishing for the warm weather but meanwhile we are forced to create our summer state of mind with what we have. No sundresses but sweaters are better than quilted jackets and we are enjoying. Summer, being cold or not,  is a miracle that makes winter a distant memory and I'm grateful for that.


















Have a happy summer everyone!

Lily of that very little valley ♡

My older girl told me one day she had found the most amazing forest with loads of Lily of the valleys. Oh my words it suddenly hit me... She is old enough to spend time time alone and she actually has a life outside our house. Realizing this hurt a little you know...

a ship
is safe
in harbor...

but that's not
what ships
are for.

Anyway she took us there. The forest turned out to be a small pathway with a few trees behind the school house but the flowers were many!

A month in photos {May 2015}

Welcome to share your month in photos!

May was the beginning of Spring and so many other things. We've been running around enjoying every moment and I can't help feeling a little sad now when it's all coming to an end. The little one is going to be a preschooler and Minea finished her first class... I'm proud of her since her first year in school wasn't easy. Being a quiet, sensitive, slow learner she has been working at least twice as hard as the other children. All the children are happy to start their holidays but Minea is mainly relieved: allowed to spend time alone and enjoy silence. And I'm gonna let her do that.

Sometimes
memories sneak out
of my eyes
and roll down
my cheeks

Midweek Musings

Bank Holiday. So welcome and greatly enjoyed. Midweek holidays always feel more special and appreciated than normal weekends or Sundays. I'm thankful for this special day, the sun and the spring. I found the time to to read, to have tea on the sofa, to bake some surprise strawberry muffins, to write my first action in Photoshop (!) and even to do nothing for a while...

Mothers Day 2015

Happy Mothers Day!

Mine has been so happy with self-made presents, white roses, cheese cake (made by my husband), wood anemones, sunshine, refreshing wind, camera and LOVE.
