Hyvää Ystävänpäivää!

We have never really celebrated Valentines Day before – in the end, it is just a day like any other and it’s not like we need a reminder to tell us how happy we are. In Finland, however, Valentines Day is more celebrated as a Friendship Day than a couple-day…with the result that I got free chocolate in all the shops that I went to today, and the number of people wishing me a Happy Valentines Day suddenly increased by 500%. And thanks to Karstens’ colleague (who insisted on Karsten being romantic today), I even received flowers 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Roses for me

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA A carrot rose from Karsten for the little one

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA And chocolate cookies for Karsten (“They are awesome – it’s like liquid chocolate pouring into my mouth!”)

So, happy Friendship Day to everyone!!!

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
