I have the beginnings of an herb garden - I have an oregano plant. I'll see if I manage to keep it alive and if I'm successful, I'll buy more.

Another photo from 2007, when my husband and I had just started dating. This was a typical dinner at home in the Center of Espoo, Finland. I am wearing a T-shirt that says "Finland", bought on a trip to Lapland (I think I ran out of clean shirts).
In practice, it means that I haven't seen many of those photos in several years and had forgotten that I even had them. I've now added them all to a new folder, which I'll slowly start sorting. It's almost like Christmas.
This photo was one of the ones I found - love the shoes and the pedicure. To be honest, I don't even know if I still have these shoes, because I live in the Czech Republic, but a lot of my stuff is in a storage space in Helsinki, Finland. These shoes may be there or I may have recycled them (e.g. if they were uncomforable). I do know that I bought these shoes at a thrift shop in Helsinki for next to nothing.

Today I've been dreaming of the beach. I was looking at old photos from a holiday in Bulgaria and I just wish I could sit like this and look at the ocean - it's something we cannot do here in the Czech Republic.
As seen on Facebook, here:
The bag (actually a men's bag) was a souvenir from this trip. The top is from a thrift store in Finland, the sunglasses bought years ago from Bangalore, India and the pants are a recent purchase from Helsinki, Finland. The brand is Nomad, and I absolutely adore them. They were super-expensive, eventhough I got them at half off. But they're really worth it because the quality is superb: they're 100% cotton, yet they are wind and rain proof and even offer protection against the sun and against mosquitoes.

I simply had to re-post this amazing photo. I lived in Paris for a year as a student and this makes me really miss it. However, there are direct flights to Paris from Ostrava, Czech Republic, where I live. May need to go for a long weekend sometime this summer.
