guest post: Finnish Summer

6.11.2012

Hello everyone! Jeremiah & I are getting ready to leave for NYC tomorrow so all this week I am happy to share that there will be some really special contributors to the blog. They've got some great posts lined up and I am happy to introduce Riikka as the first. Did you all know what a fan I am of this woman? Outside of being a mom she is also a talented designer and DIY'er, stylist and photographer. Everything she does is magic.
I hope you all enjoy! -Jennifer

Guest post by Riikka Kantinkoski from Weekday Carnival

Hi, my name is Riikka. I write a blog called Weekday Carnival and I also have small shop RK Design. I was honored when Jennifer asked me to contribute this guest post, but also a bit lost about what should I write. Summer holidays have just started here so I decided to share a small bit of Finnish Summer instead of telling you about nightless nights , Karelian pies, or salmiac.


Here in Finland our Summer lasts only two months so we have to take advantage of it in a short period. The best things in Summer for me are taking a rowboat trip early in the morning,  going to a saunadipping your feet in warm water, relaxing in a summerhouse, swimming, watching the sunset, taking a walk into a fresh birch forest, taking a night swim, going for a picnic by bike, laying in flower fields and watching how  clouds make different shapes.  To learn more about Finland watch this.   Have a wonderful summer wherever you are!
