Family holiday Tallinn

Ok guys, it’s finally happening. I’ve gone through aaall the photos from our wee trip to Tallinn and chosen the ones I want to include in this blog. It was such a nice, relaxed trip with incredibly delicious food and pleasant weather – not without some drama though…

A New Family Member

Posted on

On the 10th of August we welcomed a new member to our family: a little black domestic cat lady. After almost going with Lana’s suggestion and naming her Evelina we eventually named her Alma. I’ve always liked the name and it means “soul” or “spirit” in Spanish, which I think is nice.

The First Summer in Our Garden

Posted on

After having dreamt of a garden for years I still quite can’t believe we have one now. And that we have a garden with enough space to grow pretty much whatever we want! So lucky. I want to document our first gardening season, so I took some photos of our accomplishments (with my new camera of course.)

Hempea & Archetype – Two sustainable Finnish Brands You Should Know About

When I was younger I didn’t care much what fabric my clothes and other textiles were, and I never checked what fabric a piece of clothing was before I bought it. Now it’s usually the first thing I check and if the material of a garment or textile doesn’t feel nice I simply won’t buy it. I also want to favour more sustainable and natural fabrics, both because I like them better and because it’s better for the environment.

Well hello, it’s been a while! Last time I wrote we were still in the midst of corona, whereas now life is starting to get back to normal. The girls have been back at nursery for a month and I have been going to my office (with just one other person there) but Matthew continues to work from home.

Howdy ho from casa Äikäs-Adams! How is everyone holding up? Getting cabin fever or maybe secretly enjoying social distancing? I want to keep writing down how this absurd time is affecting us – so here’s a wee update from us 🙂

It’s All About the Corona

I know I haven’t blogged for more than two months – life has just gotten more hectic after starting full time work and studies that I have chosen not to stress about it and just write if I feel like it. And clearly I haven’t haha.

First Week of Work

My first week of work is done and dusted, and so far everything seems great! I also had a webinar for my digital marketing course, and next week I’ll have my first day at school where I’ll get to properly meet all my new schoolmates 🙂
