I definitely am not the most consistent blogger, but that is totally alright. This is meant to be fun platform I can use whenever I want to. Am I motivated to write and post more? Yes I am and I even teamed up with a friend to take photos for me, to help get more content for my blog. Which is exciting!
Usually when I think of writing a blog post, I already have a vision of what the photos should look like and when they don't come out right, I don't end up posting anything. Which is a bit petty I know, but if I'm going to do something, I just like to do it well. Even if it means only posting a few posts a year. Still, I really hope to get better at this blogging thing. Ive been thinking about why I have this urge to make everything online look perfect. Why is it so important? I can spend hours trying to figure out one Instagram post, but I can leave the house without even looking at myself in the mirror. The other day I ran to the shop to get something and on my way there I realized that I'm literally in my home clothes (the clothes I only wear at home, cause they have holes in them, but I love them too much to throw them out) and I didn't mind at all. But when it comes to posting something on social media, I would never post anything I haven't evaluated like a thousand times. This is something I really need to work on, because not every moment in my life is perfect, nor does it have to look that way on social media either!
So what I have been up to?
Like I just said, Ive teamed up with a friend to take some photos for me for my blog, which is really nice. One thing that I´ve had to learn, is knowing when to ask for help when I need it. Taking photos for my blog is nothing major, but even with this I found myself contemplating if I should ask for someone to help me with it. Im glad I did, because I simply cant do everything myself. So look forward to more posts and more photos :)
We moved into a new apartment almost a month ago that we absolutely LOVE and I was so excited to start decorating our new home, but the only thing I´ve done so far is buy one new carpet. I have a list longer than my arm of the things I want us to get for our new home, but I've developed a taste for the more expensive things, so we are going to have to get things one at a time.
I am also really looking forward to Christmas. Is it too early? Now that we have space for a Christmas tree I cant wait for them to start selling them so we can get one. Cant wait to start our own little Christmas traditions. Holidays are always tricky since our families live in different towns, but this one we might just spend at our place and have everyone else come over to us.
School is almost over and I'll be graduating from Helsinki Design School in a month and a half. Ive enjoyed school so much that I'm actually thinking of getting my masters degree soonish. Which is crazy, cause at some point I told myself id never go back to school EVER again. I still find myself struggling with the Finnish language, but Ive found something I could do in English which would really make things easier.
Its been a very peaceful autumn. Been spending a lot of quality time at home and just hanging out with my hubby. Which is always fun.
Praying for this Rona situation to go away, even though I know that won't be happening any time soon, but I trust we are heading into more fruitful seasons.
