Midsummer was a small forever ago, yet here I am posting about it.

Midsummer is kind of a big deal in Finland. It's a bit like Guy Fawkes Night - or at least there's bonfires during both. The last time I was in Finland for midsummer was four years ago, so this was a nice change. I only went to a very small bonfire (more like a campfire, haha!) but it was good. Lots of bbq food and treats were good as well. Isn't food the best part of every holiday? I even had a day off for midsummer eve and was able to enjoy a long weekend - hooray! A flower crown is a midsummer essential and I was sporting one almost the entire day. Therefore it did look a bit poo by the end of the day, ha!

The photos where I'm wearing a hat are taken by my mum. She's becoming quite the fashion photographer, haha!
