Happy New Year! - Onnellista uutta vuotta! - Felice anno nuovo!

Hello all! I hope you have been able to enjoy this festive season together with your loved ones.

Soon it's time to say goodbye to 2018. Weatherwise it was a startling year. In Finland we had a winter with much snow, the spring went by too fast (as it always does around here), the summer was exceptionally sunny, the autumn first exceptionally bright and colourful, then mild and cloudy until the first days of December when the first snow fell. It's snowing also today, softly and quietly.

Perhaps I should write about climate change, but today I won't. I just remind you that you can follow the wonderful and inspiring Greta Thunberg also on Instagram. :)

... and Christmas! :)

Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!

Kiitos tästä vuodesta, rakkaat lukijat. Onnellista uutta vuotta!

  3. Hej Sara!

    Först..tack för att du lyfter fram Greta Thunberg på Instagram, jag själv är inte med där. Och tack för alla ljuvliga bilder du bjuder på, året runt. Du är en sann inspiratör för mig som ständigt kämpar med kameran, jag vill så gärna men åstadkommer tyvärr så lite.

    Jag önskar dig ett Gott Nytt År - av hela mitt hjärta!
