My Birth Story


Ok, if you haven’t given birth or are pregnant chances are you won’t find this post very interesting…At least other people’s birth stories didn’t really mean much to me before I got pregnant and went through it myself. I still want to write down how it all happened, because knowing myself I’ll forget about all the details within two weeks if I don’t!

Say Hello to Baby Lana


It’s been a bit quiet at my end lately, but for a very good reason: our daughter Lana Elise was born a week ago on Monday the 9th of February. She’s a healthy 4 kg baby with a good set of lungs and we’re as proud as parents can be. I feel like I haven’t been able to stop staring at my little girl all week and every time I turn around I see Matthew taking yet another photo of her 🙂 

Happy Runeberg's Day!


Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804-1877) is Finland’s national poet, and we celebrate him today on the 5th of February. He was actually a Swedish speaking Finn like me, who wrote in Swedish and lived in my home town Porvoo. He taught Latin literature at the same high school I went to, Borgå Gymnasium. I’ve always liked the day – mainly because you get to have one of these delicious Runeberg’s tarts created by his wife, Fredrika Runeberg…:)
