So many reasons

I tell you it's been an exhausting week! In so many ways... But we had survived, it was finally Friday and I would have taken any reason to celebrate a little. And at that point I realized we had so many reasons.

Well... It was Friday, we had survived and it was Minea's name day. I don't know if it's actually an international habit but at least in Finland a name day is a tradition that consists of celebrating the day of the year associated with one's given day.

Nothing too fancy. But some flowers, pink bubbles, small pastries and a little present...

  3. I have never heard of celebrating name day. What is it? Is it the day on which they were born? It sounds like a wonderful idea. And without saying, your photography is as beautiful as ever, and the models are gorgeous little ones. :)

    Do you celebrate name day every week?

  4. Your photos tell the story of simple appreciation and gratitude. That little cake looks delicious and your girls are beautiful. You manage to capture their sweetness and innocence in a way only their mother could do. My favorite photo is the one of the two of them laughing - it makes me smile, too!
