Lovely Comments - Top 5

I'm not going to lie, I absolutely love getting comments! Here are my top 5 comments (in no specific order) from my lovely readers. Thank you for your thoughtfulness! 

1. Jessica's comment on Why I blog:

You are a very talented writer! I love reading here. :) SO glad that you blog!!
Hope you are having a great start to the week,

2. Kiki's comment on A letter to my past self

Ooh, the last sentence really hit me (well, your whole letter did, really!). :) Reminding myself to be fear-free and to see my value are two things that I struggle with more often than not. Thanks for reminding me of these truths and for linking up! :)

3. Susanne's comment on Enjoy your small blog

I love small blogs!! I usually think that "big" blogs are boring, because most of them have become like advertising websites. And I like how "smaller" bloggers connect with each other. 

I don't listen to blogging rules. They are so generalised and always aimed at money-making blogs. 

I especially agree with the "people follow because they want to" thing. You really nailed it there. On a smaller blog you (usually) have READERS, not followers. I think the "followers" hunt hysteria has become too much and I think people have lost the point with blogging.

I love this post. Having a daughter & another on the way sure does make you think a lot. I want to teach her to be an amazing girl/woman. I also want to be the example that helps lead her in the right direction. <3

5. Ladonna's comment on 5 Random Things (you need to read our whole conversation to get the point) 

Ha Ha! That sounds like me. Okay, no more emails. Get back to work!

Giveaway - More: From Messes to Miracles by Tammie Head

I am a lucky girl, because I was asked to review Tammie Head's new book. And I'm totally honest about being lucky, because when it comes to reviews, I am honest. (I've written a negative one too!)

More: From Messes to Miracles

Tammie's book, More: From Messes to Miracles, has been a wonderful reading experience. 

Here's why:

1. From the very beginning, you get to know the author. Tammie is not a distant "guru" who tells you how you should act and think. She is like a friend who wants to share something wonderful.

2. She doesn't cut herself any slack. She writes openly about her  not-always-so-glorious past.

3. Her style is wonderful. I liked how easy and quick it was to read. Still, it didn't lack depth and it made me think and reflect my own thoughts and longings.

I would recommend this book to everyone, because Tammie writes about something that is so universal; it doesn't matter whether you're a woman or a man, young or old, Christian or non-Christian.

I hate birds but...

I hate birds thanks to Hitchcock. And it didn't help to be chased by a crazy black one when I was a kid. Luckily a cute dalmatian saved me by catching it. You should have seen that ninja jump!

But after seeing Instagram pics of a boy and his magpie, I've started to think that not all birds are totally nut heads.

Check out THESE pics! Enjoy the beautiful photography and the bond between these unexpected friends.

Another Shop - Just My Style

In my last post I shared some pics from The Craziest Shop Ever. On our Turku trip we visited another great decor shop and a cafe, called Avelia. It's in an old shipyard building.  

Sooooo pretty!

The Craziest Shop Ever

Last week we visited my brother-in-law and his family in Turku. On our way there, we stopped at a really strange shop. It's called Kasvihuoneilmiö (translation: Greenhouse effect). 

Kasvihuoneilmiö is an "Alice in the Wonderland" experience! The shop is in an old greenhouse and they sell literally everything from army stuff to cool old furniture.
