This is how happy we are about going to Finland tomorrow 😀 Yesterday we took Lana out on the back terrace to work off some energy, and she was running around
Introducing Lana to solid foods was something I eagerly looked forward to, so much that I even started a couple of weeks before she turned 6 months. She could stay in a sitting position and reach out and grab things, so I thought it would be a very straightforward thing – that Lana would happily eat whatever I gave her and would pretty much be using a fork and knife by the age of one…Turns out my expectations were very unrealistic!
I never thought I’d sport a crop top at my age and especially not after giving birth – but after becoming a mother I’m somehow more comfortable in my own skin than ever before. Obviously my “mature” age also plays a role, plus that my tummy seems to be flatter post-birth (!!!) It might be just in my head, but still!
During my Finnish summer adventure I got to try a delicious blueberry-coconut raw cake made by a good friend, and after having another raw cake the other week I finally decided to give it a go myself. It’s also the perfect choice for me as I don’t eat egg at the moment – plus it’s nice to be able to indulge after dinner without the guilt 🙂
It is crazy how time flies when you watch your children grow. My little girl is now 7 months old. 7 months! I didn’t expect her to be so “big” already – I thought I would have that little helpless baby to care for for a bit longer. Instead I now have this big little girl who’s crawling, standing up, sitting up, eating (or well, trying to…), “talking”, teething and who’s just so brave and independent already!
I’ve posted some wintry photos of my home town in the past but it’s in summer that the town really comes alive and shows off its beauty. During my 7-week stay this summer I’ve taken a bunch of photos of Old Borgå that I thought I’d share here with you as well!
Summer is over, September is here and it’s time to stop slouching and get back on track – and to do so I needed new running shoes (I left my old ones in Finland). Asics has been my shoe of choice ever since I started running 6 years ago, but after visiting the Nike outlet last weekend and finding these babies for a very very good price I decided to give Nike a go. Not usually a fan of pink, but have to admit they do brighten up the run!
