Finding my inspiration

I ques this is what they call a writer's block ... and one thing is for sure - You can't force it. My inspiration will return. Until then, I'm just gonna wait and enjoy other things. Dream, read, write and perhaps even paint a little (!). And while waiting for my inspiration to return and to get ready to pick up the camera again, I'm browsing trough my archives. Finding my most favorites and enjoying what I've created before.

My favorite lights and blues... favorite flowers.

The most charming tones...

...and all memorable moments from the past.

Little girl with great big plans {Happy Birthday my five years old!}

There is a song of Mindy Cledhill that is embedded in this post. It’s about all that I have to say to and about my little girl. Her with great big plans. Her with the warmest heart and truest love. Her who see magic everywhere.

Happy birthday my 5 year old! I’m so grateful to have her in my life…

Little things

See how everything just starts to turn from green to brown... yellow and reds are yet to come and all autumn miracles are about to happen any time soon. It's the time of year that days fly by so quickly and I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with all there is to do. I'm trying my best to slow down as our days are filled with daycare, school, work, homework, parent's evenings, all other obligations and this'n that... there needs to be snuggles, slow runs and log walks, apples, books and little things as well!

August Memories & Pure Picturesque - Free Printable Calendar {September 2014}

After July being hot and lazy, a little wearing in it´s hazy atmosphere, August was a sudden breath of fresh air, beginnings that became routine and rain… rain & rain. The summer has come to an end and I’m enjoying rainy runs, warm blankets, a cup of tea and books! Oh, I've spent so many nights curled up with a book and waste my time in words. Autumn is around the corner and I do love it! 

And here is your free printable calendar template for September.

August mood

Feels and looks like August. Moody, brown light of ending summer. Goodbyes and new beginnings.
I thought I wouldn't want the summer to end but I've caught myself waiting for the fresh breeze of September. And today I got it. Deep rain all day long...

And suddenly you know...
It's time to start something
new and TRUST the magic
of beginnings.

This is the moment where summer and autumn collide and summer memories mix with future hopes and dreams

P.S. Looks like I'm blogging again! Feels good. 
I post almost on daily basis on my Facebook. It would be great to have you there as well!

Summer's end

School started (for the first time for us!) and I was buried under work and all other obligations. Suddenly summer seems something that happened ages ago. I feel the autumn in the air - apples, rowans and golden grain. It's all here. And it's fine. I just have to take a few big deep breaths and relax first. 
This summer has flown by like it always does. Such short season here in Finland never fails and always ends with good memories. I'm sharing some of those today.

From the beach ♡

Hi you all  I've enjoyed my summer holiday so much. It's been a real summer - hot, hasty and memorable in so many ways. I've done lot of thinking, a little reading and a whole lot of nothing.

It's still very hot but I feel the end of summer knocking loudly at our door and it's making me a little anxious and sad. I'm not ready yet. Each night I watch the sun set earlier and I desperately try not to let my tears come. So let's just stay here for a moment and cherish all this.

Here are some pictures from the beach. It was no doubt the best week of this summer
