Summary of My Summer

I feel like I’ve been putting off this post just because I don’t want to admit that summer is over but I guess now that I’m in my second week of my Master’s studies, I have to give in. It’s officially fall now. My summer was great though, and I wanted to share some highlights with you:

I read so many amazing books (hopefully I’ll have time to whip up reviews about some them for you guys) during the vacation! I always have to wait for vacations before I can read the books I’ve gotten as a present or bought for myself since we have so much stuff to read for school during the year.

I also ate some of the most delicious stuff during the summer: pancakes (SO MANY PANCAKES!), fruit and salads, delicious grilled salmon, etc. I love food…I can’t help it.

We also went to the beach a lot since we can bike there easily from our house. I love swimming and just reading in the sun so going to the beach was a great way to combine those with exercise.

Now it’s time to get ready for the fall, which is in fact my favorite season although I already feel really swamped with different responsibilities. Hopefully it will be a fun semester though with plenty of exciting new adventures!

My Life Lately: an Update

A little update on what I’ve my life lately:

  • Barbecue at our friend Riku’s house: brilliant food (smoked salmon, lamb, salad, etc) and good company!
  • Dinner with Ari’s dad and his girlfriend: we went to Helmi Grilli, which is a restaurant at the mall near our house.
  • Enjoying the company of our new kitten, Merlin: he’s growing up so fast and it’s a lot of fun seeing all the new things he keeps learning!
  • Cycling to the nearest beach: there’s a beach 30 min bike ride away from our house and we have been going there a lot – there’s a cafĂ© that serves the best salmon soup and pancakes and the water is finally warm enough for swimming!
  • Throwing a surprise party to our friend: more about this in the next blog post ;)
