Things to remember

These are some of the things I will want to remember from last week 

I thought I hadn't anything captured but then I found these. I've been feeling bad because I've neglected my blog and totally neglected my blogging community - I haven't been visiting anyone. I've been "busy". Busy enjoying the spring. And I've decided that anything besides that will just have to wait. For I have children to play football with, flowers to plant, bikes to ride, running to do and hands to hold on a perfect spring day.

I hope you'll enjoy your spring as well!

The first wood anemones 

Making macarons for the very first time...

...with my sweet little sister.

And I'm wondering when exactly did this happen as I've been watching every bud carefully to witness it.

Long slow walks in the evening light. The light that stays until we fall asleep.

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."

Spring walks are awesome. The excitement when finding something new from the nature. To see blossoms, flowers and new little green burst out of gray ground. Spring awakes some bittersweet emotions... I love it but it makes me a little restless. Time flies and instead of enjoying I find my self worrying about not having the time to enjoy. Get me?

"Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. 
But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. 
To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence." 
The Little Prince

Some finds from yesterdays walk...

Perfectly imperfect

I saw that you were perfect and so I loved you.
Than I saw you were not perfect and I loved you even more. 

I had already deleted these...

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...

For the love of... Mondays!

I'm a little bit in love with... Mondays!
A fresh start. New beginning. Sweet everyday things...

beauty is hidden in everything, just learn how to observe
