last day of summer


It's here. The last day of august. What a beautiful month, what a beautiful summer we've had. I feel somehow bittersweet, happy and scared at the same time. Seeing the past, awaiting the future but most of the all, living in this beautiful time that we have right now.

Tomorrow starts a whole new era in our life. Boys start in daycare, I go back to study. It's exiting and a bit frightening at the same time. I think the whole concept of change is rather hard for me. But I have learned a lot about change with the little ones. And the time I've had with them the past years - staying at home and doing my real life's work - has been so good and beautiful (and hard and demanding) that it feels like a miracle.

That clearly isn't going to go away, it's only daycare. But the rhythm changes, it all changes. I'll just have to stay open for this new time.

Onnea uudelle, jännittävälle, ehkä pelottavalle. Kyllä tuuli kantaa.
