2017 was a good year. I'm so blessed having had several good years in a row - plus I do think a bit of an attitude change has helped also. A lot has happened, it's been our (me & hubbys) first full year in Finland, the year we started our business and a year of many ups and downs. I made you a little collage to enjoy, so please do! Click the pics to see the captions.
Well hello, let me introduce myself! I am Lumia, and I am the entrepreneur and head of the board at my new company Chase & Snow Oy! We (me and husband, the webguru and AD) make functional websites that look good and advertising materials that work for small-to-medium businesses and NGOs. All in all, we're really good at what we do and really excited about the work too!
Hi there, glad you are still there! Sorry for the hiatus, but a lot has been going on in my life and only now I am feeling like it's time to blog about it, that I have everything so far organized that I can write about it!
I sure did, we spend the days up to Christmas and the holiday itself in Finland with my family and it was lovely, absolutely gorgeous. Snow, family, good food, a few presents, laughing and love... I guess that's what it's all about.
I went back to Finland, my native country and forever home for a week and got back a few days ago. I actually knit 6 rounds of a cowl while there, but also went swimming once, visited Imatra and the Vuoksi rapids (it was a 500 km drive there and it was a HOT day!), spent lots of time with family and generally just had a great, great time.
Greetings from Finland! I spent my Christmas with my family at my Mum's and loved it. I like living abroad, but I do miss my family a lot, so being able to spend Christmas with them is always a very speial treat.
There's one annoying thing about Novita, the largest Finnish yarn brand: they change their selection very often! I read about the lovely new yarns on Ravelry or get a few balls from my sister to try them out. I plan to buy (more) of this yarn the next time I visit Finland. By the time I get to visit Finland, they've discontinued the yarn! The bad thing is that I then can't get the yarns or colourways I want. But the good thing is that if I do find the yarns, they'll be in the marked down bin!
Like promised yesterday, here are a few impressions from my trip to Finland, my native country. All these pictures are from my home town and were taken by my darling husband Nick. I like living in the city, but there's nothing that can beat the peace of the (Finnish) countryside. It's a true vacation for the soul.
