sunrise and mist

I can honestly say that I have the most beautiful biking route to work. It's definitely worth waking up 6 o'clock for!

very early spring


I'm so amazed, it's March and it feels like May! I just can't believe my eyes!! The weather has been so incredible this weekend. So sunny and warm, around 12°C and no wind!

I spent the whole day just walking around in the sun snapping pictures of various things. Lot's of people outside and many ongoing events downtown. The city feels so alive all of a sudden!

Here's a blooming tree I found!





I even noticed how the grass grows like crazy in the gardens! Imagine, mowing the lawn in March!
I'm absolutely speechless!


pink bow


My hair cooperated well yesterday! :D




I really want to change my hair color but I can't decide to what...

the Moomins

The Moomins were a big part of my childhood thanks to the animated TV show from early 90s, and still to this day the Moomins have a very special place in my heart. I own quite the collection of books and I've been happy to see the stores full of pretty merchandise.

The other day one of my lovely readers linked me to an episode of this animated show in Japanese. I was stunned and enchanted to see my old favorite childhood show once again, and the Japanese language seemed to make it even more beyond magical. Then it hit me. Doesn't the style of this animation looks kind of... Ghibli-ish? I googled and found out that this show was indeed made by Japanese animators who also worked closely with the original writer Tove Jansson for this project.

I'm just too stunned for words. And now I want a DVD with the Japanese version so badly I'm about to crack! (。*‿*。)

Swedish version:

Are you familiar with the Moomins?
