About a month ago, on August 23rd 2014 my second oldest brother got married to his partner and the mother of their two beautiful children – my only niece and nephew so far. All in all it was a day of happiness and family and friends getting together, just like a wedding should be! Here are some of the pics from the day.

Finnish Foods I Miss

Hola!

Every now and then I get really frustrated when I can’t buy certain Finnish food items in the supermarkets here. Even more so now when I’m pregnant for some reason. I also think the fact that my last visit to Finland (before our holiday last August) was as long as 8 months ago made me crave these foods even more than usual. So I made sure I stuffed my face during my visit, resulting in me missing them even more having just come back…:/ Hope it’ll pass soon!

I Want Snow!

Never thought I’d say this, but I miss snow. I miss when it’s really cold and your eyelashes freeze. I miss being able to walk on the ice in the winter sun. I miss skiing. I even miss a good blizzard.

Happy New Year 2014!!!

Hope you’ve all had the chance to have a relaxing holiday and recharge your batteries for the new year. I’ve had a great (and extremely lazy) two weeks off work – which I had to pay for this morning when I dragged myself out of bed at 8 am only to spend the entire day in a zombiesque state. The fact that it’s Monday and it’s been raining the whole day didn’t make things better. Today is apparently the most depressing day of the year – totally agree!!

Missing Helsinki

Cathedral

I don’t know if it’s because I hadn’t been to Helsinki for a year and therefore was seeing it through new eyes, but it was sooo nice to be back this summer, and the city has never looked so beautiful. I had really been looking forward to showing the city I (more or less) lived in from the age of 19 to 28 to Matthew. He seemed to appreciate Helsinki and kept going on about how good-looking the people were. I completely agree 🙂

My twin brother got married to his lovely wife on August 3rd in Porvoo cathedral, Finland. It was a sunny and warm summer day and I was so happy that both Matthew and I could be there! Here’s a few samples of the 400 photos we managed to take during the day.

Summer is here, finally! Sun is shining and it’s actually over 20 degrees. Our office gets quite hot though, but thankfully I can work from home if it gets too uncomfortable. (Which probably happens only a few times per year anyway.)

Wedding Time!

Just a quick post with a few photos from the wedding we attended in Finland a couple of weeks ago. The wedding was so much fun and it was so nice to see everyone in the same place for once. It made me think (once again) about the downside of living abroad: not being able to see the friends you grew up with on a regular basis, not being able to see nephews and nieces grow up and not being able to buy proper cottage cheese, yoghurt and bread of course!
