Every now and then you run into this fantastic scene of complementary colors. Here’s one example. Love it when everything comes together like this.

A beautiful, crisp cold day (-24 degrees Celcius during the day), sunny and a perfectly cloudless blue sky…

I don’t usually indulge in these sweet things, and I’m a terrible liar. But when three dear people give you something delicious on a particular day, what other choice do you have but to lay off the regular indulgences and prioritize?
Cheesecake, please, and one chelsea bun. And a big, wet, sloppy kiss for dessert 😉

Bun appetite!

So you’d think that people in Finland know how to drive in winter, right?
Especially when the winter has been going on already for FOUR FRIGGIN MONTHS, right?
Well… wrong…

I guess some will never learn.

Don't try this at home
