There are titles like ”life and death” on my blog drafts, so you know it’s a slight struggle for me to write about the ordinary life and what I did on the weekend and so on. But I have heard, that I’m a quick learner, so I’m not that easily defeated. Or actually – I am pretty easily defeated, especially if it’s a children’s game and I’m on my third glass of wine. In that case though, I’m also pretty hilarious company.
After the past week and weekend I feel pretty defeated as well – in a way you feel after a good, positive game, might I add.
I got to celebrate a friend’s bachelorette party, and it was super fun. The party lasted for 22 hours for me, so when I finally got home I fell asleep instantly. We went to Tallinn, we went shooting (I was super bad), to Tallink Spa to relax a little and after that we cruised back to Helsinki and to Clarion hotel. We had a suite where we got ready for the evening and I almost feel emotional when I think about the view we got from up there. It was pretty amazing to just stare at your own city from that high up, enjoy some great white wine and talk about whatever with a friend. And what’s obviously the most important thing, is that the bride-to-be was happy and everything went well.
The next day I went to my sister’s and spent the night. I forgot how nice it is to stay in your big sister’s care for a day – and wake up the next day to even more sisters around. We had a nice brunch and after that we headed to our place.
May Day was calm, but fun. I applied glitter for everyone and we drank sparkling wine and danced. I love dancing with my sisters – we always come up with ridiculous new moves and if an outsider looked at us, it would probably look like we all just had a stroke. That day as well, I fell asleep pretty quickly.
The next day was special and not only because of the traditional First of May brunch. Well, obviously I love brunches and it was nice to have almost the whole family around the table, but there was one other thing.
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know: my blog hit it’s first ever 10 000 unique visitors per month! That is crazy. So, I don’t know. I guess I’ve thought about it this whole week and I am lost with words. It’s probably getting old, but I am so thankful for each and every one of you. This blog is my biggest passion and I hope it shows to you. And as I said on Instagram, I couldn’t have done it without Risto. He’s to thank for the fact, that this blog is up and running. Ever since I first said it out loud, that I would like to blog seriously, he never laughed. He’s always been there for me. Just like you have, for clicking to this site.
So, it’s been a crazy few days. Both emotionally and physically, since my body is still requiring more sleep. I’ve heard that the older you get, the less sleep you need. So I guess I’m still fresh and young in that department, since I can easily dream ten hours straight.
By the way – I chose (I mean, random number generator did) the winner for the giveaway, that closed on Monday. I have contacted the winner personally. And hey – there is a new giveaway coming soon, so if you missed that one, don’t worry.
Okay, so that’s what’s up. Except, one last thing: Why do passport photos always suck? In my last photo I looked hangover (probably cause I was), and this time wasn’t that much better, except that I had eyebrows on – on my last photo I used zero makeup on my brows, how is that even possible? But hey, it’s just one bad photo. Who cares.
I wish you a great weekend! Mine is hopefully gonna be quite chill, except the concert I’m going on Saturday. VIP-tickets, here I come!
And hey, how are you?
