Photo Challenge – Day 5: Someone I love

Justen

Justen. This kid brings me so much laughter and happiness. He helped me see the world in a different way, helped me enjoy little things in life, gave me patience, and gives the best hugs. I am so glad he’s my bro.

Photo Challenge – Day 4: What’s in My Bag?

Whats In My Bag

While taking these pictures, I realized that I keep entirely too many things in my bag. Tissues, plastic container to hold things like q-tips (or cotton tips as they’re called in Finland), Orajel (I get canker sores a lot), hair ties, bobby pins, and fingernail clippers. Cloth to clean my glasses, powder mirror, Finnish cell phone, iPhone, headphones, Burt’s Bees chap stick (only the best kind), gum (which I don’t normally have, but I did today), pens, pencil & eraser, wallet, coin bag, Bible, sketchbook, flyers for our Easter service, and a grocery bag (because you have to pay for them here in Finland, so we reuse them and sometimes I randomly remember things I need to buy while I’m out). Needless to say I like big bags, especially ones with pockets!

Photo Challenge – Day 3: Strangers

Strangers

I actually really enjoy riding the bus. Besides the fact that I am always running late and I have to wait in the cold at the bus stops, riding the bus is actually calming for me. I like watching people, and being able to read or just enjoy looking out the window while on the way to kotikirkko or the store. Plus its just really nice having someone else drive me around everywhere:)

Photo Challenge – Day 1: Self Portrait

self portrait

This picture is from 2009. I had just cut my hair from being about six inches longer. I chose this picture because I have been going back and forth in my head about possibly cutting my hair, but I am way indecisive. Every time I cut my hair short, I love it at first but then I end up regretting it and wishing my hair would grow faster! So I don’t know what to do. I won’t be able to cut it until I get back to the States anyway because it would cost like 100 for me to get it cut here in Finland. So I guess I have about 2 months to decide!
