A month in photos {July 2016}

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.


I will be sharing #mymonthlyscene video on Instagram as soon as I finish it...

Somewhere in Finland

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!

Blooming Jasmine

Quickly, I've got million thing to do... But first jasmines, coffee and a little morning pause, then I go ahead and see what the world brings today.

Countdown to summer vacation

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!

Midsummer ♥

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!!

a lover of rain

I'm a little sorry for my children who spent Saturday mainly inside because of the rain that continued for three days. But I'm also happy because at the moment I find rain so comforting and relaxing. There is something I just love about grey skies that I can't quite explain. Rain and a good cup of coffee made my weekend perfect. Sunday was a little better weather-wise and yes, it was to good to get out and marvel all the green around us.

and peace of mind

Working things out today

Forgive me the space between posts. Everything around me is in a whirl... work-wise mainly.
Waking up today on Saturday with no plans whatsoever feels wonderful. I realize spring is long gone and we are living in full Summer although the wind is chill and temperatures low.
Despite the weather I wanted to take a small walk with the girls picking up dandelions and blowing the seeds in the wind... Enjoyed it. It and things like eating dinner together, snuggling, laughing, holding hands and reading books in bed. Working things out.
