Wedding preparations

Most of everything for the wedding involved work. We did as much as possible ourselves, handmade... So many people helped us and everything looked really nice! It was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun :)


One Sabbath afternoon we went on a walk to the Astuvansalmi rock paintings near Ristiina.

Summer in the US

This summer I spent 7 weeks in the US with Casey and his family and had a wonderful time :)

Laura and Morten

Laura and Morten got engaged in September 2011.
We took some engagement pictures around home in Ristiina.

Me and Casey

So... Casey and I started dating in 2011 when he came to visit Finland.
We got engaged right before Christmas 2011 when he came for another visit :)

Europe road trip

In July 2011 Casey, Laura, Alina and I went on a 3 week long road trip through central Europe. On our way we passed through 15 countries and drove over 7000km. It was great! We slept in the back of the van, washed up in rivers and streams and cooked over a camping stove. We saw lots of beautiful scenery along the way and met up with a few friends too :)

Highlights of summer 2011

The whole family together for a little while!

I'm back!

So... I took a little break from blogging. A year and a half to be exact. I didn't mean for it to go so long, but it did. A lot has happened in the last year and a half. I started dating Casey, we got engaged and got married. Lots of school has happened. And a bit of traveling and time spent with family and friends. 

I'll do a little recap of the highlights between April 2011 and now and then I'll hopefully get back to business :)
