The sunlight, which I thought would never come back again after so many dark weeks, appeared on Saturday. We took a walk in the city, did some gift shopping, had a cup of coffee and enjoyed the light.

The garden collection of Granit is perfect if you are looking for some summer inspiration. In fact it only feels good if you are not living in a country that rains four days a week in summer, and you can enjoy your garden without feeling cold in the evenings. That’s the reason why this collection reminded me of southern European countryside.
We celebrated Midsummer on Friday. It is one of the most important traditions in North Europe. The longest day of the year is celebrated all day long.
