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.
