Middle August and those big fat beautiful sunflowers are open. We hit the field briefly, on a very sunny and windy day. Not at all ideal for photo session. I might try again one day but I'm sharing a couple of snaps here anyway!
Blooming hydrangea. Beautiful in it's white but I can't wait it to turn brown and even more beautiful in my opinion. August days are slowly passing by while we are busy in everyday routines. School started as we speak and autumn is already knocking on the door. Love the way everything is at the very moment. Happy weekend everyone!!
The first apples are ready. One foot in summer. One foot in autumn. I can't help it - I'm already hearing whispers of autumn. Kids are back to school next week and it's so exciting again to have a first-grader in the house! I'm starting a new job, we are renovating our house and then there are all the dance and sport classes starting etc. etc. And it's time to harvest. Jam, juice, pies, dried and fresh ones. Busy times. New beginnings. Ideas and projects. Waiting for the new season already.
Holiday month almost gone! Three more days left. May it be a beautiful farewell.
July was perfect: travelling, sunshine, mostly glorious weather. Memorable moments together: loads of swimming, just hanging out, eating berries, making good food. And it all culminates Minea turning nine years today. Happy birthday dear!
July favorite. The nine years old.

Hello you all! Sorry for the silence; we've been so busy enjoying the summer and holiday. I've got one more week and then I'm back to work... We spent ten days in beautiful Budapest spending most of the time bathing and every second picture has kids in their bikinis... I still have to go through the photos and see if there is something to share. But here is some random pictures from Finnish Summer. And in just few days it's time put up a month in photos!
Three more days! Countdown to summer vacation. I will be here on Thursday/Friday to put up 'a month in photos' linkup. After that it might take few weeks until I get the first summer trip pictures edited. Can't wait! "Come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned." -Peter Pan
I can't believe it's already midsummer! Or actually that's over as well....
I still have a few boxes of last summer berries in my refrigerator. Maybe it's the Nordic in me, but I never quite believe summer is really here until June is over and done. After years filled with brief moments of blissful warm followed by week of rain and cold, I just don't trust the season arriving early. But this year it really did. We've been living in wonderful full summer from early May and I couldn't be more thankful for it. We need to get rid of the last year berries soon. One week and my summer holiday will start!!
